The Sweetness Of Life

One of my favorite drinks is a modern twist on the classic iced coffee. It is a smooth blend of espresso and flavored syrups, with a creamy whipped swirl and a drizzle of caramel. This drink is truly indulgent and is perfect for any occasion.
Blended Iced Coffee

                   Blended Iced Coffee With Caramel Drizzle


1 1/2 cups espresso or strong brewed coffee, cold
   1/2 cups whole milk
   1/2 cups granulated sugar
      2 tsp   Torani Caramel Syrup
      1 tsp   Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
   1/4 tsp   salt
      1 dash vanilla extract
      3 cups ice cubes

   Whipped Cream
     1 cup Heavy Cream
     1 Tbs Confectioner's Sugar (powdered sugar)

To 3 cups of ice add coffee, milk, sugar, syrups, salt and extract and blend until smooth and frothy.

In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl add heavy cream and powdered sugar and whip until firm and and smooth like...whipped cream.

Spoon whipped cream into a pastry bag with a decorator tip or a freezer bag with one tip cut off.

Pour coffee mixture into a tall glass and pipe whipped cream on top to a high peak.

Drizzle with caramel syrup and ENJOY!
