There are several methods to make iced coffee. Some involve fancy gadgets, like a chemex or an aeropress, but you can make equally great tasting coffee without all the fuss. I like the cold brew filter method or espresso based iced coffees, both quick to make and delicious to taste.
Ingredients (for one person):
- 3/4 cup milk (200ml)
- 1 tea spoons of caramel syrup (or any flavour that you like)
- 2 espresso shots (you can use your favourite capsules or coffee beans)
- Ice cubes
- The fanciest drinking jar that you have
- Coffee capsules machine or your favourite coffee brewing gadget
- Measuring jug
- Cocktail shaker
How to make it:
1. Prepare the coffee shots.
2. Fill your jar/cup with 4-5 ice cubes, and add the coffee.
3. Combine the milk and syrup and froth the mixture using the shaker.
4. Pour the milk mix into the iced mixture…. Et voilà! Enjoy your cold iced latte! 😉
A great alternative is to mix all the ingredients in a blender and adding a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. Or, for a real treat, you can add some chocolate bars (such as Bounty), or cookies (such Oreo) or a chocolate brownie. Then to go completely mad, you could top it off with a good dollop of whipped cream or a handful of chocolate chips! Yummy!
The basic drink is delicious, the additions are great too. Whatever you go for, you will not be disappointed.
Believe us, we weren’t disappointed. Delicious!
