Justin's Favorite Thai Iced Coffee

Justin has never been a real coffee drinker. Whenever I make a latte at home, he might have one but with lots of splenda in it. He's more of a hot chocolate drinker. Thats me on a cold, rainy day.

But we recently went to Minnesota and we hung out with some good friends. Jason is an old college friend who never really sleeps. And to keep his computer hacking skills at their finest even when he's living on 2 hours of sleep, he drinks really strong coffee. One day we were visiting and he was drinking a Thai coffee drink. Justin thought it looked good so he tried it. Now he's hooked. So to thank Jason, Justin blogged his mad Thai coffee making skills and I bring it to you with limited commercial interuptions.

Recipe: Thai Iced Coffee (Vietnamese preparation as well)


subtitle: Starbucks, drink your heart out!

So here it is, Jason's famous iced coffee recipe -- ripped off by myself (which has also been ripped off of every Thai restaurant in the world).

Here's what you need:
-Ice
-Coffee (double shot/two parts)
-2 Tbsp. (one serving/one part) Sweetened Condensed Milk (full-fat, low-fat, fat- free, etc.)

Optional: Hammer & sandwich bag (for crushing ice if you like it that way and don't have a crushed ice ice-maker)

Steps:

1. If you want crushed ice and don't have a crusher built into your refridgerator, you can simply load a baggie with some ice and smash it with a hammer. If your hammer is nasty you may find it best to double bag. I've found that a full tray of ice, crushed, will get me 2-3 servings, depending on how big of a glass I use.


2. Fill your glass 2/3 with ice.











3. Prepare your coffee maker however you like with whatever coffee you like. I have an espresso/cappuccino maker, so I like to do a double shot. Whatever you do, it's better STRONG.












4. Add the coffee to the glass or espresso shot. You don't need to use a lot of coffee because the ice will melt when you add it.











5. Add one serving of sweetened condensed milk.












6. Stir


See now you can become a mad Iced Coffee maker, Thai or not.

This looks so good. And easy to do in the comfort of your own home. I like it. I never thought it could be this easy.

It is easy. I think he makes one every morning. Well when he's not running latte (LOL, I'm just so funny)!

:)

Come over sometime, he'll make one for you.

I just paid Starbucks $4.50 for one of those last night.

I feel ripped off.

You should, they are making a killing on stuff that you can make!

Comeon, stick it to the man--or the coffee chains! Make your own drinks!
