refreshing granizado de café ...



When you take a break in your day for a refreshing drink ... what do you usually have?

More often than not, it will be a cup of coffee.

As well as being enjoyable, it gives you that slight "lift".

But, what do you do if you fancy a coffee and the weather's boiling hot - as it often is in Spain?

The answer is to choose a granizado de café.

You'll find this drink readily-available in Spanish cafés and restaurants, especially during the hot, summer months.

So, what exactly is a granizado?

Granizado is a mushy, icy drink with a straw in it - sort of half-way between an iced lolly and a drink.

You sip a little liquid from the glass ... wait awhile for some more to melt ... then drink that ...

Included in the Spanish drinks recipe below is Tía María, that delicious Spanish coffee liqueur, which adds flavor and gives the granizado an extra kick.

That is entirely optional though, as is the cinnamon powder.

Check out also our wonderful Spanish recipes page, where you'll find many tasty and affordable recipes to accompany your granizado de café.
