Iced drinks called granizados are very popular in Spain during the long hot summers. Granizados look a bit like the slushies you enjoyed as a kid, but we guarantee that this one does not taste like it! This granizado is made with strong espresso coffee combined with cocoa powder and brown sugar. It is easy to prepare and very refreshing. Try a cup as an afternoon snack on a hot summer day, or serve instead of dessert after dinner. Make it ahead of time and keep in the freezer until you are ready to serve.
