A lip-smackingly good iced coffee is the perfect summer treat and it’s so easy to make at home. Taking just a few minutes from start to finish and with the option to jazz it up with your own syrups it’ll taste like it does when you treat yourself at a coffee shop – but with homemade satisfaction. Here’s how we made it…
I N G R E D I E N T S
1 cup of cold water
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of strong filter coffee (we used Safi coffee)
2 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk (this can be substituted for another milk of choice)
3 teaspoons of sugar
M E T H O D
1. First off you need to make a simple sugar syrup. Combine the sugar and cup of water in a small to medium saucepan and warm over a medium heat, stirring until the sugar has completely dissolved. Let cool in the fridge (or freezer if you are short on time). Once cooled, add the vanilla and stir thoroughly. You can omit the sugar entirely, and just use the vanilla extract if preferred.
2. Fill a glass of mason jar with ice and pour in the syrup.
3. Pour the coffee over the syrup and ice.
4. Then add a few tablespoons of milk (depending on how milky you like your coffee), give it a little stir with a straw and voila!
