Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino

"A friend of mine told me this was the actual recipe used by Starbucks. I do not believe him, but it does taste surprisingly similar. I have quadrupled the recipe as I like to make it in advance and keep it in the fridge to surprise guests. Note: If you make it in advance, do not store it any longer than you would milk."

    This is a delicious drink. I made a serving for two but I used leftover breakfast coffee and stirred in the sugar to dissolve. Then added milk and recipe #112925 for the syrup. Had some coffee ice cubes and blended. Great! Will be nice this summer to cool off.

    I didn't have a blender so instead I froze a cup overnight and then stuck it in a microwave for 30 seconds in the morning. Then I attacked it with a spoon, chipping away and stirring until creamy and smooth.

    Excellent! I made this today and instead used 1 part coffee mix to 2 parts ice. I like a creamier, iced coffee. It was delicious. Next time I make it though, I will replace the 3/4 cup sugar with 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk, because I think the syrupier it is, the better the ice will blend with the mix. Since I used double the ice, it did tend to seperate slightly as the coffee mixture is pretty liquidy.
