CARAMEL ICED COFFEE
As I mentioned yesterday, iced coffee is my jam. I drink it on occasion throughout the winter months, but I go all out as soon as the promise of warmer weather makes an appearance. Ideally, I'd love to drop by Starbucks every day and pick up an iced caramel white mocha (no whip, obvi)...my favorite drink of choice...but that might break the bank. Last summer, in an effort to save moneys but also satisfy my iced coffee obsession, I gave the Starbucks VIAs a try. Of course, I couldn't go with regular old coffee (too bitter for my poor tastebuds), so I picked up the caramel kind because caramel in anything is my favorite.
I know some of you could make fancy iced coffee from coffee you brewed and chilled and turned into wonderful ice cool creations. However, moment of honesty, I don't know how to brew coffee! I don't know how much water goes in, or how many coffee grounds to put in, or what buttons to push. It's a nightmare really. So I take the easy way out with instant coffee thanks to my hero, Captain Starbucks. All you need is your coffee mix, some water, some ice, and a little (or a lot) of milk. Delicious iced coffee in sixty seconds. Voila!
