Ice Caffe Latte

Well, I am back on my kick of drinking Iced Coffee. But this time around, I am not buying them from the coffee shops or fast food places.

I saw this recipe on the Food Network by Giada De Laurentiis and had to try it. It was pretty good and way cheaper than buying it at one of those places.

Ingredients

  • 4 shots espresso (about 1 1/2 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1/4 cup Cinnamon Simple Syrup, recipe follows
  • 1 1/3 cups whole milk
  • Crushed ice, for serving
  • Special equipment: 4 small mason jars

Combine the espresso, flavored simple syrup, and milk in a small pitcher. Fill each of the mason jars with crushed ice. Pour the latte mixture over the ice and serve immediately.

Cinnamon Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 cinnamon sticks

In a saucepan combine water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved. Take the pan off the heat and cool the syrup. Any extra cooled syrup can be saved in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Yield: 1 cup

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes
