Maybe you’ve been looking for a way to spice up your coffee habits or simply try an iced coffee drink for the first time, but you aren’t quite sure how to make one. No worries, we’re here to help.
What most people don’t realize is that making an exceptional iced coffee drink is much like preparing a cocktail. It is a delicate drink that requires preparation in advance, a bit of patience (don’t worry – not too much), a knack for detail, and a willingness to try and try again until you capture the perfect taste for your iced coffee drink.
Coffee Ice Cubes
Have you tried to create your own iced coffee by merely adding regular water ice cubes? It doesn’t work. The best way to create the perfect iced coffee is to create coffee ice cubes. Take freshly brewed coffee and pour it into your ice tray. Then place it in the freezer and wha-lah! Add these in to your iced coffee to keep it from becoming too watery.
Experiment with Sugar
Some like it black nix the sugar, some like it with as many sugar packets as they can take, and some have a sweet spot somewhere in the middle. Iced coffee has a different taste and feel than its hot counterpart so be prepared to try out different sugar additives in order to find the perfect balance for your treat.
Pour on the Taste
When creating your own iced coffee drinks, don’t be afraid to try a variety of tastes. Feel free to try sea salt, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, fudge, or a mix. Have you tried any of our flavored syrups and creamers, and unique coffee blends?
Another important part of creating the perfect iced coffee drink is changing the way you brew the original coffee. When you brew your hot coffee the taste might be strong, but it will lessen in strength once it has been chilled. When making iced coffee be sure to strengthen the taste by letting it steep or brew longer than you normally would or by adding additional coffee packets.
Don’t worry. It won’t be long before you’re making refreshing iced coffee drinks like a pro.
