Last week while driving through Connecticut I had lunch with Martha and her sister Laura at Richard Gere”s restaurant The Bedford Post Inn. After lunch we went back to Martha”s house, she made iced coffee,and we had Maple Walnut Pie I brought from the the Noonmark Diner in Keene Valley, NY. The coffee was so delicious and refreshing, I have been craving it ever since, I think the secret is in the pure cane sugar cubes she added to the hot espresso and steamed whole milk. martha”s ice coffee- Pour a shot of hot espresso into a heatproof glass, add one pure can sugar cube and stir until the sugar dissolves. Fill the glass with casino ice. Steam cold milk just to make frothy, do not heat the milk completely. Pour the milk and froth over the ice into the glass with the espresso, stir and serve cold.
Maxie and Rubie, my Jack Russels were with me on the ride and missed their opportunity to be on The Daily Wag with Francesca and Sharkey, Martha”s dogs. They were not really as well behaved as they should have been, hope they get invited back.
