Summer has FINALLY arrived in Newfoundland! We are hitting mid to high 20s with loads of humidity so that calls for a nice cold drink ~ think “Iced Caffe Latte with Cinnamon Syrup”. We’ll wait until after 5pm to add the alcohol to make it a special iced coffee! wink wink
How often to to stop at a coffee shop and buy an iced coffee? Those drinks are full of sugar so how about a simple recipe you can make at home and you control how much sugar you add and what ingredients are in it! Makes sense to me 🙂 You don’t have to feel guilty about sipping this “Iced Caffe Latte” and it’s so good! Great coffee flavor with a hint of cinnamon….you’ll be that person slurping on the straw to get every last drop!
