PostSubject: BEE STING ICED COFFEE    Sun Jul 14, 2013 6:09 pm

Bee Sting iced coffee keeps me going. It's ultra refreshing in the unfathomably hot and humid Florida summer weather as well. I have been putting cayenne pepper powder in all kinds of things that it doesn't seemingly belong. I found that I really enjoyed the kick it gave when adding it to oatmeal as well.

Bee Sting coffee is very easy to make. You'll simply need:

1. Black, preferably room temperature coffee. This is a great use for leftover a.m. coffee as well. I make one cup of black coffee in a French press in the morning and have recently been only drinking a few sips, then switching it over to an iced coffee once it becomes room temp.

2. Honey. I use the Mesquite Honey from Trader Joe's as I find it is very light in color and neutral in flavor so that it sweetens without adding too strong of a honey flavor. Whatever your favorite honey is will do.

3. Red pepper powder

4. Cream. I use Organic Valley heavy whipping cream. Heavy Whipping Cream is recommended for best results and flavor but half and half or your favorite non-dairy creamer will work if you don't have or prefer not to use heavy whipping cream.

5. Ice cubes


Directions:

In a tall glass add 1 Tbsp. honey, 3 shakes of cayenne pepper powder and your room temperature coffee. Stir well.

Add cream to desired color/taste. I like mine when it achieves a light tan shade. Stir again.

The key to this drink is to fill the rest of the glass generously with ice. Stir very well and be patient while ice chills the coffee perfectly.

The honey sweetens the coffee deliciously and the cayenne pepper gives an awesome spicy kick. The pepper will sink to the bottom so I prefer to drink mine with a straw or keep the spoon in the glass so I can stir it up periodically. This drink is highly addictive!

Ooh, thanks for posting this recipe, Angela. I have been wanting to find a good iced coffee recipe after trying to resist the premade (and expensive) iced coffee gallons at the store. I have some really nice honey from a local place that will be great in this.

I hope you guys like it! Let me know what you think. It is pretty affordable but you can also control the quality of ingredients so that you don't have to eat refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup or non-organic dairy (if you consume dairy), which I like!

This is yummy! I made it yesterday and it is so refreshing! I don't drink dairy so used coconut milk creamer and it was great! Thanks, Angela, for this great recipe-I will be making it again today as it has been hot and humid here in Iowa!

I made it today. Three shakes of cayenne would have been too much for me, I think - I just used one and it was the right level of tingly. (or maybe my spice lids' holes are bigger than Angela's?)

Anyway, it was yummy and I drank two big glasses. If I can't sleep tonight, you all know whose fault that will be, right?Smile
