…ok, I know I’ve thrown myself into the throngs of fall… but I wanted to share this treat with you before its too late…
Starbucks “Gazebo Summer Blend”… meant specifically to be iced coffee!
… Many warm afternoons I’ve wanted a cheap iced coffee fix. But it just never tastes the same when I brew regular coffee and pour it over ice. Now I know why!
Iced Coffee has different brewing measurements than regularly brewed coffee! To account for the melting ice… Iced coffee is brewed double strength. So, instead of 2 Tbsp. to 6 ounces water, use 4 Tbsp. scoops to every six ounces of water. It seems so simple… but somehow I never picked up on this. If you did, don’t tell me because I’ll feel silly.
Pour the Brewed Coffee into a carafe. Add ice. Allow to cool.
Serve over ice. Add a little little caramel or chocolate sauce over the top. Our favorite is Stonewall Kitchen’s “Coffee Caramel Sauce”, or really, any of their dessert sauces.
Enjoy with a friend…
