Nothing beats that summer heat in July and August. If you are fortunate to live in the south and get to enjoy summer all year round, I envy you! Basking in the sun on my back deck, reading a good book is one of my favorite things to do in the summer.
With summer comes so many treats that seem to be less enjoyable in cold weather. A nice refreshing beer on a patio or a summer sangria, a popsicle while going for a nice walk or a freshly scooped ice cream cone all scream summer.
One thing I admit I'm a little addicted to is coffee. In 86 degree weather, I cant say a hot cup of coffee mid afternoon is my go to. Summer time is all about the cold brew for me.
Cold brew coffee pops are exactly what I am craving as a coffee lover! Icy and refreshing while still giving me that afternoon pick-me and little added sweetness with the chocolate chips. Its coffee meets popsicle meets summer time treat! What more could you want ?!
