I was on the phone the other day with a friend of mine, and suddenly, she asked “What on EARTH is that sound?” I realized that I had her on speaker, right next to my Keurig, and she heard me brewing. When I explained that it was my Keurig, she seemed really puzzled. “It’s hot out… how do you even drink that stuff in this heat?”
The question kind of… puzzled me. I mean, I use my Keurig year-round. Who wouldn’t? And then I realized, she is one of those crazy people living in the dark ages with no Keurig. Don’t worry, I was living in the dark ages, too, until last Christmas, when we finally broke down and invested in a Keurig as the Family Christmas Gift.
But that’s when I realized I needed to address a pretty common question when it came to Keurig brewers…. what do you drink when it’s hot? I mean, there are some people, myself included, who still enjoy a hot beverage even when it’s hot outside. But there’s also something magical about a Keurig brewer.
It’s called Brew Over Ice, and it’s pretty much the best thing ever. You take a specially marked Brew Over Ice K-Cup, a cup full of ice (preferably not a glass cup), and your Keurig, and then you just brew the K-Cup like normal… but…. over ice.
That blue logo on K-Cups that says “Brew Over Ice?” That’s how you know it’s specially made to Brew. Over. Ice. Got it?
Anyway, it’s not just for coffee fanatics, either. There are like a gazillion Brew Over Ice varieties. Except not a gazillion, more like 18. We’re talking everything from coffee (of course), to Lemonade, to Snapple Tea! You can even get a little good ol’ half and half (Half Lemonade, Half Tea, that is!) if you’re down with the whole Arnold Palmer thing.
My personal favorite is the Vitamin Burst fruit brew. I pop in a Vitamin Burst K-Cup anytime I’m feeling a little under the weather (or anytime I want a delicious treat, but I digress), because it’s PACKED with Vitamin C! I also love the Snapple varieties, because they’re way easier to store than bottled Snapple, and they taste as awesome as the bottle.
I’m seriously obsessed with Brew Over Ice, honestly.
