There’s nothing I enjoy more than a cold, delicious Venti (yeah, I need a Venti of this stuff) Iced Coffee from Starbucks. But sometimes I don’t have the time (or, let’s be real, the money) to pick one of these bad boys up in the mornings, so I’m going to share with you how to make a Starbucks Iced Coffee Copycat at home, this is a cold pressed iced coffee recipe.
The trick to making the iced coffee is to cold press it, and then serve it with a simple syrup. Having a simple syrup is the smooth sweetness that compliments the coffee so well and because it is already a liquid, you won’t have any pesky sugar granules coming through the straw!
To me, a cold glass of iced coffee is the ‘cat’s meow.’
Out of curiosity, I looked up what the phrase ‘cat’s meow’ meant, and totally got a laugh out of Urban Dictionary’s use of it in a sentence ‘George, your zoot suit is quite the cat’s meow!’ aaahhhhahaha! I’m still going with it in this context ‘Phi, this iced coffee is the cat’s meow!’
And how perfect- this drink has less than 5 ingredients making it perfect for this week’s Five Ingredient Friday!
