 5 Iced Coffee Upgrades That Make It Even Easier to Get Your Caffeine Fix - Recipe Templates from The Kitchn
From The Kitchn - July 16, 2017

Some may argue that iced coffee is such a perfect warm-weather drink, so why not just leave well and good alone? You see, I do not agree because it's a perfect template for experimentation. Coffee works well with so many other flavors that riffing on the beverage is not only fun, but it also turns out to be seriously successful. If you thought regular iced coffee was great, just wait until you give one (or all) of these twists a try.

Your Template for Flavoring Iced Coffee

Start with your favorite iced coffee. Pour a tall glass and then add one or two ingredients to turn it from good to great. Here's the basic template, which results in one glass, but feel free to double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients to make enough for you and your friends.

1. Minty Coconut Iced Coffee

Fresh mint bumps up the refreshment factor of this tropical-leaning iced coffee that's just the right amount of creamy. Place 4 mint leaves in the bottom of a glass. Use a muddler or back of a spoon to crush the leaves. Fill glass with ice and iced coffee. Add 3 tablespoons canned, full-fat coconut milk and stir to combine. Sweeten to taste if desired.

2. Orange Almond Iced Coffee

The bottle of almond extract is probably collecting dust in your pantry, and that's a shameits sweet, nutty flavor is the perfect match for bitter coffee and fragrant orange slices. Fill glass with ice and iced coffee. Add 1/2 teaspoon almond extract and 2 quartered orange slices and stir to combine. Sweeten to taste if desired.

3. Iced Coffee Float

4. Cashew Vanilla Iced Coffee

5. Sparkling Mocha Iced Coffee
