Yummy 3 Minute Ice Coffee Recipe

I have always loved ice coffee but find it prohibitively expensive in the coffee shops. There are plenty of ice coffee recipes online but many are too time-consuming to bother with, advising you to brew the coffee for 18 hours with mint leaves or add an array of ingredients which you probably don’t already have. That was my inspiration behind this 3 minute ice coffee recipe.

The following recipe is for a basic ice coffee but of course you can jazz it up however you wish, adding syrups, sprinkles and cream on top, a shot of liqueur or whatever tickles your taste buds today.

Flavored Syrups for this 3 Minute Ice Coffee Recipe

I have a selection of syrups here including vanilla, caramel and strawberry and sometimes I will add a splash of one of those to my ice coffee. It just depends on my mood. I’m not into sweet coffee so I often do not bother with syrup.
