Drinking: Iced Coffee

There are a million ways to make iced coffee out there - but this is my latest way.

First I make a coffee simple syrup to use as a sweetener. This is really easy. Just make some regular coffee. Use a ratio of 1 cup coffee: 2 cups sugar. Bring coffee and sugar to a boil and then turn off the stove. This is to simply dissolve the sugar into the coffee. Keep in the fridge.

To make the iced coffee - make a double espresso and cool in the fridge. Add cold coffee, coffee sweetener, and soy milk to a glass. Add ice cubes. Enjoy.

The extra step of the coffee sweetener really helps increase the coffee flavor in the drink.

The next step in my iced coffee adventure is to make coffee ice cubes. I am also toying with using coconut milk instead of soy milk.
