247 – Coffee Lemonade (Mazagran / Capile) – Portuguese Recipe / شراب القهوة الليمون

My friend Teresa, from Portugal, is showing us how to make a summer drink that is very popular in Portugal called Mazagran. It is usually made during the hot summer days – in Portugal it gets really warm! This is a very simple drink that is delicious and refreshing!


  • 1 cup black coffee (cold)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (adjust amount to taste)
  • White granulated sugar (adjust amount to taste)
  • Ice


1- The ingredients are simple but you would have never thought of paring them together: lemon juice, coffee, sugar, and ice! Coffee and lemon juice may seem weird but they pair up amazing together! You can just use your favorite regular black coffee.
2- This recipe is flexible meaning you can adjust the amount of the ingredients to your taste. In this recipe we are using double the amount of coffee to the lemon juice, but adjust to your taste.
3- Mix the coffee with the lemon juice. Add the sugar to your taste. I have a sweet tooth so I put more sugar.
Fill up the cup with ice. You can also add spices or herbs like vanilla or cinnamon to change it up!
