Iced coffee to start Monday morning. .
I'd forgotten how hot and humid Mumbai summers can be. The humidity gets stuck to your skin like a clingy love, the second you leave the confines of an air conditioned room. I'm feeling so low on energy that I've no drive to go out and meet friends or hang out at familiar spots in my home city 😰 .
I'm obsessively making sure that there's always enough ice in the freezer. Not meaning to sound snobbish or overly fussy, but six years in Bangalore has left me completely defenseless in the face of this heat! I was just telling a friend how happily we spent our summer holidays here, I don't even remember feeling the least bit uncomfortable. May be we weren't used to ACs then or the weather was just not as bad as it is these days.
So coming to this iced coffee. Coffee granules (I use Nescafé Gold Blend here), stevia and 3-4 spoons of hot water whisked until very very frothy, topped up with chilled skimmed milk and a cube of ice. For a ginger chai morning girl, this is a total change of scene, but what to do, survival is at stake here 🤒🤕
