To quote the wonderful Lorelai Gilmore, "Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!" Being moms of littles, this is a staple in our day. However, when those hot summer days hit, it becomes hard to drink something so hot. In walks Iced Coffee. Enjoy this refreshing drink and still get your caffine jolt!
- Cold brew coffee
- Milk or cream
- Syrup of choice **
Start with cold brew coffee. Our coffee consultant says the best way to make cold brew coffee is to brew your favorite coffee hot as you would normally make it and then put it in the fridge until chilled. No song and dance required for a fancy cold brew (but rumors say it could potentially enhance the flavor!) Never hurts to try."
Next add milk and your favorite syrup. Our favorite ratio is half strong coffee, half milk and a spoonful of syrup. If you prefer stronger coffee flavor just increase the amount or do straight coffee with a dash of cream instead.
