When its 90+ degrees outside before 9am, its definitely time for iced coffee.  Don’t get me wrong, I love nothing more than drinking a warm, comforting, delicious cup of joe first thing in the morning, but when the heat is overly oppressive, iced coffee is where it’s at!

I just recently tried cold brew coffee (I know, I know….sometimes I can be slow at trying new things.)  Well, I don’t know what I was waiting for, because cold brew is AMAZING!!  Cold brew has all of the amazing flavor and smoothness of coffee, but none of the bitterness or acidity that regular brew can sometimes bring.   As soon as I tried cold brew, I knew I had to make my favorite coffee house drink.

In addition to the cold brew, I made my own vanilla bean syrup.  I’m so glad I did!!  Not only was is really easy, but the flavor was so much better than the store-bought bottled stuff.  Making syrup is simply a matter of bringing sugar, water, vanilla, and a vanilla bean to a simmer.  You’ll dissolve the sugar, and then let cool.  That’s it!!  Easy, peazy, right?!

To make the iced coffee, I added a shot (1 oz., or 2 Tbsp.) of my homemade vanilla syrup, along with 1/2 c. of the cold brew coffee over coffee iced cubes.  FYI – making coffee ice cubes is a great way to not end up with watered-down iced coffee. From here, you’ll add half and half (about 1/4 cup), or your choice of milk.  Voila!!  You’ve got an amazing iced coffee drink in just moments!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. cold brew coffee (homemade or store-bought)
  • 2 Tbsp. (1 oz.) vanilla bean syrup
  • 1/4 c. half and half
