I actually made this as a hot coffee since we still have fluffy white stuff on the ground here in the north. Instead of instant coffee I used some fresh brewed coffee. As a personal choice I chose to omit the sugar and I added a splash of half and half. I'm saving this recipe to my beverage cookbook, so I can make this as an iced coffee as intended this summer. Thanks for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the Best of 2010 Recipe Tag game.
This was so good. I was in heaven. I used brewed cinnamon hazelnut cream coffee in this. It worked beautifully. What a great coffee treat this was, I loved the strong orange flavor, it blended perfectly with the coffee, garnished with whipped cream and coffee sugar it was the bomb. Thank you so much for sharing Mirj. Made for Comfort Cafe-Chalet 01/10 :)
I found this very tasty! I halved the recipe because BF doesn't like coffee, but he tried a sip and even he admitted it was pretty good! I was kind of surprised at how well the coffee and orange flavors combine. My one qualm with the recipe is the sweetness- I halved the sugar, but it is still even a little saccharine for my taste. I would make again, but would probably up the milk/cream and lower the amount of sugar (but this is personal preference, I typically take my coffee with no sugar and lots of milk or cream). I used all Organic ingredients and a Valencia orange. Thanks for a yummy cool drink for me to sip this terrible hot spell we're having! Very refreshing!! :)
