Iced espresso with cold whipped milk (my evil Nespresso aerocino whips milk both hot or cold) or iced coffee sweetened with condensed milk are yummy as well.
And quick too. Just tried it, very nice, thank you.
And I know what's in it.

Glad you like it. It’s my staple summer thing to drink. It’s why I bought an ice machine.

I guess you do your coffee frappé the Greek way? Where do you buy this:

Don't tell me, in Greece
I haven't found that anywhere in ZH yet, so after some experimentation, I've settled on this coffee which gives very decent results....

The whisk was part of my Valentine's Day present a couple of years ago because he knows how much I love frappes. It's my favourite ever Valentine's gift, and cheap as chips so I can easily replace it.

You have to shake it. You sweat. You stink. Your wife tells you you stink. By the time you return from the shower, the café frappé is warm and watery .....

..... or your wife looks very happy and asks for an other one.
Repeat.

Re: Weather!

Not as hot here today, pleasantly surprised.. no way was it 35/34°. More like a cool 31°

I am happier as the house doesn't feel like a hot tin can this evening.

Re: Weather!

The water in the swimming pool here (in France, a couple of hours from Basel) was 30° today!!! No idea about the air temperature but way too hot to do any of the plans I had for the garden.

The café frappés were very cool, though. (Bodum milk frother here too...)

Yuk. Imagine all those Chlamydia bacteria at 30C. They are loving it!

Re: Weather!

Had a good breeze yesterday which was nice, but still too hot at 31-32C. I have 26.5C outside now and that with a temp gauge that's in the shade all the time.

I need to mow the lawn, but not sure when I can get it done before the predicted rain comes if the heat stays like this. Just sitting at my PC and I'm sweating, god knows what it would be like if I actually did some activity.

Okay it's a UK forecast, but we often get the same weather patterns here.
