Cacao drink | Cacao recipe | Ceremonial cacao | Summer
Summer is here; there is no denying it! Although some of us have held onto our warm cups of Cacao this far into the year, rising temperatures are a reminder that it is time to stock up on ice cubes and experiment with preparing our daily dose of Ceremonial Grade Cacao as a chilled, super energizing drink.
For those of us equating Ceremonial Cacao to warming comfort, making the switch from hot to cold first needs to happen in our heads! So let's make one thing very clear: Keith's Iced Cacao is every bit as delicious and every bit as potent, ceremonial, and medicinal as your regular warm Cacao drink!
And so, not only can we keep drinking our daily power elixir throughout summer, but we can also keep sharing it, iced, in ceremony. Preparing Iced Cacao for a ceremony is much less complicated than you think. You just need a blender and a cocktail shaker, store-bought or improvised!
The key to making great Iced Cacao is to get your ratios right. Because you're pouring onto the ice, which will melt and dilute your mixture, you need to account for that in your measurements by using less water in your initial preparation. This way, you can make fill your drinking glass with ice to your heart's desire without worrying about weakening your Iced Cacao's potency and strength.
We know you'll love it! For just as there's something magically soothing about a warm cup of Cacao on a brisk fall morning, there is also an undeniably powerful punch that accompanies a large Iced Cacao on a hot summer day. Go ahead, give it a try!
Our beloved warm Cacao drink turned into a refreshing summer wonder!
