Hot coffee seems correct at breakfast, but out of place as the hot day wears on. This is where the iced coffee truly comes into its own. Be careful though: because it’s so delicious, you could easily drink too many and then your eyes would pop out and roll through the croquet hoops, and minutes later you would explode.


  • 2 shots of espresso coffee
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2


Pour the espresso into a jug and stir in the cocoa powder and coffee essence until smooth. Put the ice cubes in a clean tea-towel and bash with a rolling pin to break into chunky pieces.

Half-fill 2 tall glasses with the ice and pour over the coffee mixture. Top up with the cold milk and serve.
