This is very similar to Starbuck's Frappucino that you get in the bottle versus the frozen drink or iced version you would get at the store. This really hits the spot on a hot day. I usually make this in a 24 oz glass with the tablespoons heaping, so you may need to adjust measurements depending on your glass size. If you prefer a caramel flavored coffee, use the caramel topping and leave out the sugar. The evaporated milk makes it taste more like a Frappucino, which does have a distinct evaporated milk taste, but it's still great without it and we often make it this way when we want something a bit lighter or don't have evaporated milk on hand.

This turned out so much better than I thought it would! I didn't even use caramel, yet it has a light caramel taste to it!! I'll now be using this instead of spending lots of money on store bought Frappuccinos. Thanks!

Directions See How It's Made
- The order you do this in is important. In a very large glass, preferably 24 - 26 oz, mix hot water, coffee and sugar (or caramel topping) until dissolved.
- Add the ice cubes and stir vigorously for about a minute until the hot water has cooled.
- Add the evaporated milk and then top off the glass with the remaining milk and stir well.
