Coffee with Whipped Cream
1 1/2 cups coffee, 3 pints boiling water, 1/2 pint cream, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon
Put coffee in a cheese-cloth bag, add water and boil 3 minutes. Let stand ten minutes then remove bag and keep coffee hot until serving time. Beat cream until stiff, add sugar and vanilla and serve a spoonful on each cup of coffee. Serves 8.
2 tablespoons coffee, 3 cups water, 1 teaspoon lime juice, 2 tablespoons sugar, ice
Make coffee in the usual way and add lime juice, sugar and cool. A little lemon juice and a few tiny pieces of fruit are just as delicious in coffee as in tea. Cream added with chipped ice without the lime or lemon juice makes a delicious cold drink.
Iced Vienna Coffee
1 1/2 cups finely ground coffee, 6 cups water, 1 egg or crushed shell
Make coffee as usual and add the egg or shell. Strain through cheesecloth. Chill and serve with sweetened whipped cream. Serves 8.
