While summer may have to come to a close, this warm weather sure hasn't yet for most of the country. With New York, the Mid-West and South still seeing 80-degree weather, we figured most of you are in need of some cool refreshment. So while blustery evenings may be on the horizon soon, in the meanwhile we have gathered up three delicious and revitalizing drink recipes to help you keep the heat at bay. Featuring Nespresso Grand Crus and what may be some surprising ingredients, each of these little concoctions just might be the perfect way to top off those last al fresco dinners on the patio or Sunday brunch this weekend.
