Portuguese Mazagran Coffee Lemonade may not be the first beverage to spring to mind when you think of Organo Gold, or coffee for that matter. But today we’re again taking our OG passport around the world, and this time arriving in Portugal, where a coffee drink known as “Mazagran” is a local specialty.

A combination of black coffee, lemon and sugar, the Mazagran is a refreshing beverage that is particularly popular in the hot summer months Mazagran is a long cold coffee beverage served in a tall glass.

It is often made with strong coffee — usually espresso — lemon and ice, and sometimes sugar or simple syrup is added to take the tart edge off the lemony flavor. A fast version of the drink can be whipped up simply by pouring a previously sweetened espresso in a cup with ice cubes and a slice of lemon.

Ingredients

1 cup black coffee (cold)

1/2 cup lemon juice (adjust amount to taste)

White granulated sugar (adjust amount to taste)

Ice

The ingredients are simple but you would have never thought of paring them together: lemon juice, coffee, sugar, and ice!

Coffee and lemon juice may seem weird but they pair up amazing together!

 

 

 

You can just use your favorite OG black coffee, such as BrewKups in Gourmet Black Gold or Gourmet Black Coffee.

This recipe is flexible meaning you can adjust the amount of the ingredients to your taste. In this recipe we are using double the amount of coffee to the lemon juice, but adjust to your taste.

Mix the coffee with the lemon juice. Add the sugar to your taste. I have a sweet tooth so I put more sugar. Fill up the cup with ice. You can also add spices or herbs like vanilla or cinnamon to change it up!

Such an unusual and refreshing drink! Yumm!
