Gorgeous Summertime Iced Coffee Ideas to Make at Home
Updated: Aug 7
Iced coffee is not an absolute favourite but these three amazing combinations may turn you into a fan. Really easy and simple to prepare they make the perfect drink for sunny days.
Flavour combinations are endless and trying something different from your go-to coffee can be surprisingly rewarding. Adding a shot of Kalua or Bailey's can also make it more attractive.
Have in mind that sugar does not dissolve very well in cold drinks, making the use of syrup an important step to add new flavours and richness to your iced coffee. A much better option than store-bought syrup, is making your own as a fun part of your creation.
Homemade syrup in super easy four steps: 1. Boil 1 cup water 2. Mix with 1 cup sugar 3. Add your choice of extract (vanilla, caramel, coconut, etc.) 4. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour before using (or speed up the process by chilling in the freezer)
We've selected these delicious recipes to give you that Summer feeling with a caffeine boost. Sparkling Coffee For the lovers of black coffee, it's a great option.
