Iced coffee with a shot of vodka: Now there’s an idea for chillaxing on a summer day. You can have an old school Black Russian or a White Russian (recipes).

Or, you can add vodka, tequila or rum to iced coffee.

De’Longhi, maker of premium espresso machines, sent us recipes for these two iced espresso drinks.

If you don’t normally sweeten your coffee, leave out the sugar. Adjust the proportions based on the size of the glass you are using.
