My Nespresso On Ice Picnic
Within these last two weeks or so, we have most definitely been hit with the “finally it’s hot and summery” feelings, and I am not complaining one bit. As I’ve mentioned here on the blog, I have made my own personal list of to-do’s this season, so you know your girl is ready the second that we get a sunshine filled day!
Just this past weekend, and after having the flu for an entire week, I started on that list and decided that it would be the perfect day to have my very first picnic of the season. Ask anyone, and they will tell you just how much I love a pretty picnic!
Aside from the humidity that day and the fact that I was finally getting back to myself after being sick, it was the perfect afternoon for a low-key picnic, so I visited St. Lawrence Market to pick up some goodies (and flowers of course) along with a few items sent to me from my Nespresso family which inspired the picnic to begin with.
Their latest release, Nespresso On Ice was what got me through the humidity and while the ice clearly melted before these photos, it was such a refreshing addition to my yummy treats and fruit. The new limited edition coffee is specially crafted for a delicious iced coffee to cool you off on a hot day and that’s exactly what it did for me! Available in an Intenso on Ice and Leggero on Ice, I enjoyed my Leggero which offers fruity notes, while relaxing on this adorable Tofino Towel x Gentle Fawn blanket while munching on treats and fruit!
I’ve also enjoyed the Intenso on Ice at home with cold milk froth and its intense, roasted flavour was the perfect way to perk me up during a hot morning!
Just this past week, I also had the opportunity of attending the Nespresso on Ice event in Toronto and those in attendance were lucky enough to get a cocktail lesson (which was so good, I will definitely be sharing the recipe on the blog soon) as well as a tuna tartar cooking lesson from Lavelle’s head chef and newest Nespresso Chef Ambassador, Chef Romain Avril. It was such an amazing experience and the best way to kick off iced coffee season!
