20 Delicious Iced Coffee Recipes to Make at Home
6-Burnt sugar simple syrup + cold brew iced coffee :
This cold brew system is easy to use and it’s cheap. The filter comes with directions that make a coffee concentrate that lasts me about a week (though I have an extreme white girl relationship with it). It also comes with a fantastic carafe that fits in the fridge.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- Place the sugar in a pot with high sides on medium heat.
- Stir often (I used a silicone spatula) so it does not burn.
- To achieve the burnt taste, heat until the sugar turns a darker color and just until it starts to smoke and smell a bit.
- The sugar may also form strange chunks in the beginning, but do not worry – these will melt.
- Once the sugar is melted, quickly pour the water over the sugar, but stand back and be careful, as the process is quite dramatic and may sputter.
- Stir and melt on low or medium-low until any remaining chunks of sugar are dissolved.
- Set aside to cool and then store in an airtight container. The syrup will keep for 2 weeks.
- Add two tablespoons to your iced coffee, or even bourbon-based cocktails!
