I'm a big fan of iced coffee as a cool, refreshing sort of drink. This recipe really fits that description. I originally found this recipe somewhere around the web while looking for a good iced coffee recipe, but since originally finding it, it seems to have disappeared. What I've listed here is my best recollection, based on my own personal experimentation, of the best iced mocha coffee I've had.
- 6 cups strong coffee (I leave this preparation to your discretion. Generally, if making six cups, I use approximately 9-12)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 cup milk
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup chocolate syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Combine the coffee grounds, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the coffee filter of an automatic coffee pot. Make sure they are well mixed.
- Brew coffee.
- While coffee brews, warm milk in a small saucepan.
- When milk is warm, add the brown sugar and chocolate syrup. Stir until everything is mixed together and the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Add the vanilla extract to the milk mixture and stir to combine.
- Pour the milk mixture into a separate container large enough to hold it and the coffee.
- Pour in the brewed coffee and shake to mix it up.
- Place the mixture into the refrigerator or freezer to cool. Alternatively, just drink it warm.
- NOTE: Make sure that you mix the coffee grounds, cinnamon, and nutmeg together before you brew the coffee.
- NOTE: You don't necessarily need to pour the coffee and milk mixture into a separate container, that's just my preference. If you have a large enough pot, you can just pour the coffee into there but make sure its mixed well.
Great tasting iced coffee!! I made this as written, but for 1/2 of the amounts. I heated the milk/sugar mixture in the microwave and then added it to the coffee, in the pot, and added it to the refrigerator to cool. The cinnamon and nutmeg are the flavors that stand out and the spice gives it a nice kick compared to the plain mocha iced coffees. I didn't really notice the chocolate much at all, and I even used Gevalia's Chocolate Mocha Coffee, so next time I think I would cut back on the cinnamon, to get a better blend of all flavors, but that is just my personal preference and this is awesome as written!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for 2013 Spring PAC event.
