Although you could stop at your local coffee house for an iced latte, you can achieve the same results at home for a fraction of the cost. Iced lattes are some of the simplest coffee drinks to make. All you need are a few simple ingredients, an espresso maker, and a cup in which to mix the ingredients. Unlike the hot version of the drink, there is no need to steam the milk or produce a milk foam. Just brew the espresso, stir it with milk and your favorite flavoring (if desired), and pour over ice. I like mine with a mixture of hazelnut and vanilla, but my wife likes hers with caramel or chocolate. Add whatever flavors you like. Just remember, making you own is so much quicker and cheaper than ordering that large decaf soy vanilla latte with an extra shot of espresso over ice.
2 oz espresso
12 oz milk
1 1/2 oz flavoring syrup
1 1/2 cups ice
Brew espresso according to manufacturer's directions. In large cup, stir together espresso, milk, and syrup. Add ice and serve immediately.
