A while ago, I read an article posted by a butler to one of the wealthier families in England. He was saying that maple syrup was not used enough in everyday food. He came up with a recipe for maple syrup in coffee. This inspired me to start adding it to my own coffee. Of course his was far fancier than mine will ever be, but it was the inspiration for this treat. I wish I could find that article again so I could link it. If anyone knows what I am talking about please let me know so I can save it!!
Now on to my little creation. The first thing you’ll need to do is brew a cup of your favorite coffee beans.
Once the coffee is ready, give it time to cool. If you are too hasty, it will melt all the ice and the coffee will be watery. When it is no longer steaming hot, get your glasses and fill them with ice.
Then put a dash of cinnamon in each one. The reason I put the cinnamon in first is because it tends to all float around on the top of the glass. This way it has a chance to mix in with the rest of the coffee first.
Then pour maple syrup over the ice.
After that, pour in unsweetened creamer. I personally like quite alot in my iced coffee. Maple syrup is full of sugar so it will sweeten the coffee perfectly.
Next pour the coffee in slowly, and mix it up. The syrup is rather heavy, and tends to settle at the bottom of the glass. Stirring it will flavor the entire glass.
And that’s it! This is the perfect summer drink for every coffee lover. There are few things as refreshing as a nice cold cup of coffee in the afternoon on a hot July day. If you try this, let me know in the comments what you thought of it, or share your favorite iced coffee recipe.
