Every coffee lover knows that this drink is perfect — especially on hot days when you need something refreshing. 5-Minute Crafts will show you how to make some delicious iced coffee along with some things you can add to give it an extra twist.

How to make it

1. Make a cup of coffee.

Add the coffee of your choice and the quantity that you desire. You can use a cold brew or instant coffee.

2. Add ice to a glass.

Fill a glass full of ice cubes. If you want a stronger cup of coffee, you can freeze some of it and enjoy flavored ice cubes.

3. Pour some coffee into the glass with ice.

Pour the coffee slowly into the glass and make sure it’s at room temperature or even chilled.

4. Add milk and stir.

Add the quantity of milk you desire — it will depend on how much coffee you used. Milk will mask the coffee’s bitterness. Stir and it’s ready.

Things you can add to your iced coffee

1. Syrups

Add syrups to your coffee to give it some extra flavor. They need to be added before you pour your coffee in. You can make your own flavored syrups at home.

Here’s how to do it:

  • Boil 1 cup of water.
  • Add 1 cup of sugar.
  • Add some extract (like vanilla, caramel, or coconut).
  • Let it sit in the fridge for one hour before using it.

2. Cocoa

Add a tablespoon of cocoa to a vanilla extract syrup (as was explained in step 1) and mix them. The “chocolate syrup” that will come out of the mixture should be added last.

3. Spices

If you’re a fan of spices, this is a great option. The best spices to use are nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and pumpkin spice. Add this on top of the coffee.

4. Coconut water

Coconut water gives an extra coconutty, almost chocolatey flavor to your drink. It’s also a great healthy option. Coconut water should be added last.

5. Vanilla ice cream

Drop a spoonful or 2 of vanilla ice cream on top of your iced coffee to give it the consistency of a milkshake and a more intense flavor.
