World Cuppa Vanilla Iced Coffee

This iced coffee recipe will have you skipping your stop at the local coffee shop; It's easy to make and refreshingly delicious!

How To Make It

Brew specialty coffee and let cool to room temperature. Next, heat sugar and water in a small saucepan on medium heat, stirring until all sugar is dissolved. Set aside to let cool and stir in vanilla extract. (You can store your remaining syrup in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator.) Once your syrup is ready, pour coffee over ice and add in desired amount of vanilla syrup. Stir in half and half and enjoy!

This recipe uses sweet vanilla syrup to sweeten, however you can choose to use a flavored creamer instead! Simply skip the steps to creating your syrup and replace regular half and half with creamer. Check out our easy, all-natural vanilla coffee creamer recipe here.
