The Perfect Iced Coffee

Iced coffees are the perfect summer cooler. However, we find that often you get them either too strong or too sweet and there’s nothing worse than a really watery one – it’s like drinking a murky stream! 

Anyway, we believe we’ve found the recipe for our iced coffee down to a tee, so we decided to share it with you all! The use of a sundae glass, stripy straws and glitter tape are totally optional…although if you ask us they do make all the difference!

Ingredients
1 ½ tsp  instant coffee granules
1 tsp caster sugar
1tsp boiling water
200ml 
Milk fridge cold
5-6 Ice cubes


Method
- In your glass mix together the coffee granules and caster sugar.

- Add in the boiling water and mix until the granules and sugar are dissolved.

- Pour in all the milk and then the ice cubes. 
- Mix well and leave for 30secs to make sure the drink is completely cool.
Pop in your straw and serve with a yummy little biscuit.
