It seems like everyone & their mother is trying vietnamese iced coffee, & with good reason. It's delicious. After seeing this recipe pop up every time I opened my Pinterest app, I wanted to see if it melded with my whole cold-brew routine. I posted this recipe for french-press cold brewed coffee (total mouthful) a whole year ago, & over that past year I've been drinking said cold brew each & every day. That's a lot of coffee, guys. I'm not going to do the math on it, but I'm pretty sure that's enough coffee to, like, fill a small lake. Either way, I usually drink my cold caffeine with chocolate syrup & milk, sort of like a mocha. Inspired by this fun twist on coffee, I gave it a try. The outcome was delicious. Simply sweet, but not too sweet to drown out the rich coffee taste.
To make this vietnamese-style cold-brew, all you need is:
- A cup of iced or cold-brew coffee (click here for the recipe)
- 1 tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk
- Ice cubes
Pour one tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk in the bottom of a glass. Fill the glass with iced coffee, & stir thoroughly (pro-tip!: I throw the whole concoction into my travel mug & shake thoroughly). Add ice. Yum & done!
P.S. If you're a mocha-person, try adding some homemade chocolate syrup to your cold brew.
