My husband gets the credit for this creation, and my daughter for the nice image. :) she was very proud of the coffee scoop tilted “just so” LOL.
After becoming hooked on this delicious fast food drink, but spending nearly $3 per order, Glenn KNEW he could make them just the same!! after much trial and error, he nailed it perfectly, and only PENNIES per glass!!! We usually drink them through a straw to really get the full effect, but for the blog, it is straight from a 12 oz glass.
make any amount you need of DOUBLE strength coffee (maybe even a little OVER double strength) then COMPLETELY cool it.
fill a 12 oz glass full of ice
2 Tbsp DaVinci vanilla syrup ( we tried caramel , but did NOT like it) you may also need to adjust this for sweetness preference, but 2 Tbsp is a good place to start.
1/4 cup ORIGINAL Coffee-Mate liquid
Top with the COOLED double strength coffee.
Pure refreshment on a hot summer day. !!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to emphasize this is all done from a 12 oz cup full of ice and you may need to adjust ingredients for personal preference, but this is as close as you can get to the Drive-Thru version. :) Glenn was spending $3 each day on the way to work, and now we have a pot of the double strength coffee on our counter, and each morning, he makes his OWN and takes it in his to-go cup. Can you imagine the money savings on this????? makes me smile. :)
I have to laugh, my son is mowing the yard today and stopped the mower RIGHT next to my computer room window. “Mom, you ought to take a picture of ME mowing for the blog” !!!! too funny!!! they are as “into” this blog deal as I am, and are SURE everything they do is definitely blog worthy!!! (and of course, it IS!!!) but in the meantime, my daughter was ready for the photo shoot of the Altered Caffeine!!!
Also, I am deep in the process of setting up an Etsy shop. I am still trying to figure it all out, but as soon as the Etsy shop is up and running, I will let you all know, you can invite your friends and do some shopping!!! of course, those not familiar with Etsy, it is all handmade items by artisans from all over. Just my style!!! 🙂
Please let me know how you like this post, some will like it more than others of course, and as always forward it on to friends that also enjoy Iced Coffee…….. but now, for a FRACTION of the cost!!! yeah!!!!!
