Vanilla Latte

Ingredients :

  • 2 tablespoons vanilla syrup
  • ice cubes
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons half and half cream, or sweetened condensed milk
  • cold pre-brewed coffee, instant coffee or instant espresso

Instructions 

  • Fill a mug or mug-sized glass to the brim with ice cubes.
  • Add vanilla syrup and half and half or sweetened condensed milk.
  • Fill the remainder of the mug with cold pre-brewed coffee, instant coffee, or espresso.
  • Stir well.

Notes

  1. To make the simple syrup
    1. Bring 2 cups of water to a simmer.
    2. Add 2 cups sugar and stir to dissolve.
    3. Remove from heat and let the mixture completely cool. 
    4. Store unused syrup in a container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
  2.  To make the homemade vanilla syrup
    1. Heat ½ cup simple syrup to a very low simmer.
    2. Add ¼ cup brown sugar and stir just until dissolved.
    3. Remove from heat.
    4. Add 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract (I prefer Mexican vanilla).
  • Put the syrups in squeeze bottles for easy dispensing and storage.
  • You could make coffee ice cubes in an ice cube tray so that when the coffee cubes melt, your coffee won’t become watered down.
