Iced Vanilla Latte

Coffee service should reflect a more modern approach when entertaining & the same delicious flavor combinations that perk at your local coffee house will certainly appeal to guests who have grown accustom to bolder brews, spices & other stir ins. Creating a fresh style of serving good coffee to accompany with desserts as simple as Langues de Chat, Almond Meringue Cookies or Lemon-Vanilla Madeleines should be efficient, effortless & fun. Iced Vanilla Latte can be made quickly, in advance & in the blender no less. Prepare up to one day ahead of time & just before portioning into pretty glass pitchers for serving, whisk vigorously to create a bubbly personality. The sipper can be offered well chilled or over ice. Organize demitasse spoons, linens & miniature coffee or cappuccino cups on bright white trays or fine silver pieces. Learn how to make them shine with my straightforward technique on How To Polish Silver, too.

The sipper is mildly sweetened from ice cream. If you prefer a sweeter beverage, additional sugar may be added to the coffee while hot, if desired.

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

 Pulse half of the coffee, half of the ice cream, the milk & the nutmeg in a 2-quart blender on Low speed 20 seconds or until smooth. Add the remaining ice cream & pulse until smooth. Stir in the remaining 2 cups coffee. Serve over ice. Garnish, if desired.

How To Polish Silver

A more modern approach to a traditional coffee service should still include several heirloom silver serving utensils or trays. A bit of cleaning will need to be addressed in order to have them looking their best. To remove the tarnish quickly & effectively, particularly from spoons, place settings & cake servers with intricate details, my two step method will tidy them so that only minor polishing will be needed during the remaining season.

The Technique

Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil with the shiny portion facing upwards. Place the silverware in a single layer in the pan being certain all of them make direct contact with the foil. Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Sprinkle 4 teaspoons baking soda over the utensils, then pour the water over them. Let stand a few minutes in order for the chemical reaction to remove the tarnish. Once shiny, remove them from the solution with a pair of tongs & rinse them under water. Dry the pieces & use a little commercial cleaner such as Wright’s Silver Polish & a soft cloth to buff them further for a beautiful shine. Wash the silverware well with soapy water before using. The silverware should only need a quick additional polish or two with commercial cleaner during the upcoming months. Tuck away the silver when not in use by placing in zip top bags to keep it looking its’ best longer. For larger items such as trays, the same method can be used by lining the kitchen sink with foil. Increase the water & baking soda by 3 to 4 times, if necessary, to cover them completely or simply polish extra large trays more diligently with commercial cleaner.
