Thai Iced Coffee Recipe. Monday, June 13, 2011 My days are numbered on this blog, where I can write posts that pertain to my wild college days, specifically the times that I’d skip class, bribed a professor with food, rode a motorcycle and partied as much as I could. I say that my days are numbered because two certain little boys are learning how to read, and my youngest, Nathan, is reading at a pace far greater than for his age. Like any good mom, I’ve been telling the boys that school is fun, homework is important and a solid education is the key to eternal happiness.

At some point, the boys are going to start reading Steamy Kitchen and I won’t be able to write about stuff like the late-night motorcycle runs on Sunset Boulevard to our favorite Thai restaurant hang-outs. Flaming hot curry, barbecue chicken and Thai iced coffee were our must-orders. When making Thai Iced Coffee, I brew very strong coffee by doubling the amount of coffee grounds than I normally use.

As will happen from time to time (coughdaily), last week I got to longing for what I consider one of the greatest Cocktails Out There That Is Not a Manhattan, one that goes by the name Porch Swing as is served at Blue Smoke, a delicious mutt of a barbecue joint (Memphis babybacks, Kansas City spareribs, North Carolina slaw and Texas brisket, anyone?) On East 27th Street. The Porch Swing is a also a delicious mutt, with Pimm’s and Hendrick’s Gin and Lemonade and 7-Up and thin slices of cucumber (recipe over here) and omg is it October when mama can have a proper, strong drink yet?

But for once, something phenomenal came out of this backyard longing, and that was (when Googling about for the official Porch Swing recipe), the discovery of something a little more gestationally-appropriate, the Watermelon Lemonade from Bubby’s, a pie and chicken noodle soup-style comfort food restaurant in TriBeCa.
