Ideas For A Perfect Iced Coffee Recipe
Many people think their favorite iced coffee recipe, is closely guarded by the coffee house. Since they can’t get their favorite cold drink at home, they’re forced to wait until a trip to a coffee house to get it. Fortunately, it is possible for you to make your favorite iced coffee at home.
For some of you, iced coffee may be a new thing. So what exactly is iced coffee?
Well, it’s just what it sounds like! It’s coffee that is served cold, usually poured over a cup of ice. Some iced coffee is made by brewing the coffee cold, but this often leads to the coffee tasting bitter, as well as taking much longer to brew. So instead, there are two ways to use brewed hot coffee in your favorite iced coffee recipe, to create the finished drink. The hot coffee is either poured over a cup of ice or poured over a cup of cold milk.
Iced coffee can be a great alternative for summertime, when many people don’t want to drink hot coffee and miss the taste of coffee during the season. Being a warm drink, many people see coffee as something only made as fall and winter drinks, but this doesn’t have to be the case.
As iced coffee becomes more popular in coffee houses, recipes are more readily available for coffee lovers who are willing to experiment a little bit. This makes it possible for you to make your favorite iced coffee drink at home.
Here are a few great recipes:
Cinnamon Caramel Iced Coffee
You will need:
- six tablespoons of ground coffee
- half a teaspoon of cinnamon
- half a cup of caramel dessert syrup (like the syrup poured on ice cream)
Brew a pot of coffee. You may want to put the cinnamon into the coffee grounds before brewing it to infuse the coffee with that spicy cinnamon flavor.
Once the coffee is brewed, add your caramel syrup to the hot coffee. Be sure to stir it well to dissolve all of the syrup.
Put the flavored coffee in your refrigerator until it’s chilled, then pour it over ice. Though the caramel will sweeten the coffee, you may want to add sugar to the coffee until it suits you.
Here is another iced coffee recipe you may like.
