Coffee in the Summer

June 18, 2015

The piece today is Coffee and Cream in the Morning, based on pretty much what many people do every morningget coffee and get ready for the day. Big shiny coffee beans are the focus and cream drippings creates a thin curtain of certainty. Certain that the day must begin, certain you need that cup to get it started. The collage is made up of the things one might seein the morning, moring paper, toothpaste pacakge, and packets of sugar. The geometric design is suggestive of getting dressed-a scarf one would throw on before walking out.

The recipe is anything but morning friendly– coffee with Grand Marnier, vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and a hint of orange zest– an after work summer treat, or it fills the dessert bill too.

ALL measurements are approximate- please taste as you go along and adjust – make it YOURS!

4 cups of Chocolate flavored coffee(or plain if you prefer)

2 tbls sugar

4 generous scoops of favorite vanilla ice cream

Zest of 1/2 orange

Chocolate syrup

8 tablespoons of Grand Marnier

(makes 3-4 servings)

Make coffee as usual, while still hot and in the pot- add 2 tablespoons of sugar. Grab a glass or mug, pour approx. one cup of coffee in, then add (at least) 2 tbls of Grand Marnier. Top off with a generous scoop of ice cream, then chocolate syrup and sprinkle with a touch of orange zest.
