Summer has arrived! And that means more excuses for Iced Coffee. Well, I've been brewing, mixing, and experimenting to re-create some of our favorite coffee shop drinks to make at home. It's saves the mula, and gives us much needed time on the back porch. Or in our jam jams to watch tv, iced coffee in hand.
My husbands favorite is the Iced Mocha Macchiato. Which is surprising, because when we first met, he wouldn't touch iced coffee with a ten foot pole. Now days, it's his go to drink. I love it, but honestly, I think I make it better. HA! Hey, just keeping it real. I prefer my coffee to be strong and lightly sweet, where as most places make this drink like a melted candy bar. Here's the recipe for those interested:
Marble Mocha Macchiato
6 Ounces of Coffee
1-2 Tablespoons of Mocha Creamer (Try my homemade version or the Coffeemate Mocha Creamer works awesome)
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Half & Half
1 teaspoon Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
Whip Cream, optional
In a large glass, mix coffee, creamer, and half & half. Pour 1 teaspoon of Hershey's chocolate and drizzle inside the cup. Add milk, ice, whip cream, and additional syrup if you want. ;-) Enjoy!
