i finally figured it out.
the secret to the best iced coffee, that is.
(i make a 4-shot espresso-ish thing in my bialetti.)
sweeten while it's STILL WARM people.
(that way the sugar/honey/whatevs actually dissolves)
then FREEZE IT.
like in an ice cube tray.
for the coffee drink on display,
i used my frozen cubes,
(coffee math time: 4 shots makes 12 cubes, so 3 cubes = one shot)
some coffee liqueur,
some homemade almond milk.
ya know how commercial iced drinks always have that amazing texture
THAT'S TOTES WHAT THIS WAS LIKE!!
i couldn't believe it.
i guess because you're not watering down the whole mess with ice.
water-ice cubes are so old fashioned.
i'm only making coffee and juice cubes from now on!
(p.s. juice cubes are for your juice so it stays juicy,
or to have with rum so it stays...rummy.)
tis a thing of beauty.
a delicious, boozy beauty.
