Being a coffee lover whether hot or cold, I always enjoy experiencing the flavor and the freshly roasted flavor of the beans. Finding an iced coffee that satisfies this requirement in a coffee shop is difficult, so I have the perfect recipe that you can make and enjoy at home.
To make the coffee blend, (using your favorite beans / blend, of course), always use fresh coffee grinds. Instant coffee is not recommended to get the best iced coffee at home.
From your espresso machine, espresso stove or plunger, make 200mls of black coffee. If you do not have any of these coffee makers at home, line a funnel with a white paper napkin, pour 2 tablespoons of freshly ground coffee and pour 30 ml of hot water.
Since black coffee is cool, add 25mls of vanilla syrup aroma.
To make the vanilla syrup flavor at home, mix a quarter cup of water and a quarter cup of sugar, boil until the sugar dissolves. Once cooled, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.
You may need to adjust the quantities to make sure you have your cold drink savoring the way you like it.
In a tall glass, pour the coffee mixture. Again, how much you pour depends on how strong you like your coffee. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Add the milk just below the top of the glass. Swirl in your cream and sprinkle with granulated chocolate. Now, sit down and enjoy your best iced coffee. It is truly unique.
