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.
Ice Caffe Latte
Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis
- 4 shots espresso (about 1 1/2 ounces each)
- 1/4 cup Cinnamon Simple Syrup, recipe follows
- 1 1/3 cups whole milk
- Crushed ice, for serving

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

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.
