This recipe is super easy because you can get the coffee already made or use an ice coffee maker like this one. Starbucks also sells a large container of unsweetened coffee in the refrigerated section now and I LOVE it. Plus I think my version is so much better because I actually control how much of what I put into it instead of my barista:0)

  2. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla syrup like Torani’s. Give it a stir and mix.
