Asian Iced Coffee

I like to make this sweet and decadent iced coffee when I  entertain my family and friends. It is very simple to make, but it tastes very rich and satisfying. You can also add extra touches to it to make it taste fabulous.  Take note of my tips and tricks below to jazz this already wonderful iced coffee up.

8 cups of prepared coffee  (see note below)
1 can of condensed milk (14oz)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Ice (optional)

Note:  I simply used instant Nescafe coffee.  You can use any brewed or instant coffee that you like.  Make the coffee as strong or light as you like to drink it.

Make hot coffee and mix in condensed milk and vanilla.   Allow the coffee to chill well in the fridge for several hours before serving.  Serve over ice.


Tip 1:  You can add a dollop of whip cream to make it even more decadent.

Tip 2: If you don't like ice cubes diluting your ice coffee, you can freeze some coffee in ice trays and use them as ice cubes.

Tip 3:  You can stir in some chocolate syrup to make a mocha flavored coffee.

Tip 4:  You can add a dash of ground cardamom powder to the coffee to give an aromatic/floral taste in the background.

Tip 5:  You can add Kahlua, brandy or rum to spike your drink.

Tip 6:  You can add a dash of nutmeg to enhance the flavor.
