Iced Latte or Iced Chai Latte at Home

Iced Latte at Home
Iced Latte. The perfect compromise between a cold, refreshing drink and an afternoon pick-me-up. On countless occasions I have shelled out a fist full of cash at a fancy coffee house (or M-place drive through) for what is essentially a strong cup of coffee poured over some ice. It is really, really easy to make this at home, saving money and time. I have one right now, in fact, and did not have to load the kids into the car to go fetch it.

Coffee
Milk of your choice- fat free, 2%, raw, almond, whatever
(optional- shot of coffee shop syrup)

Freeze the milk of your choice in an ice cube tray.

Brew a pot of coffee in your French Press. Let it stand on the counter until lukewarm, or even overnight. Unlike conventional drip coffee makers, leaving coffee in a French Press will not burn it. It only gets stronger as it soaks, releasing the richer, nuttier tones of the coffee bean.

Fill a glass with frozen milk cubes. Pour the coffee over top, adding a shot of coffee shop syrup if you like, and stir.


Variation: Iced Chai Latte

Brew a strong cup of chai tea, and when it has cooled to lukewarm take out the tea bags. Pop in some frozen milk cubes, stir, and enjoy!
