Caramel Icebox Coffee

I'm baaaaack...and I brought coffee!

It's been a crazy couple of months, but I'm back to business and back to making delicious things for you to eat. I know you missed me terribly. 😜

This coffee has been on my brain for a minute. It's a remake of this delicious iced coffee I had at a local cafe a few weeks ago. I was in heaven, and drinking a cup at home is just as satisfying (if not more).

The best part? It's so freaking easy. And the flavor combos are basically endless. I love caramel, but you can try this with a mocha syrup, pumpkin spice, or even mint!

Look, I know we're all thinking it, so I'll just say it. Yes, those are coffee ice cubes. They are the real star of the show here. The real Finals MVP. The real Steph Curry with the shot (can you tell I've been watching basketball recently?) This coffee would not be the same without them, and I 100% mean that.

I like to nurse my coffee and make it last as long as humanly possible, so having coffee ice cubes is key. They slowly melt as I drink, releasing coffee all morning, giving me the biggest caffeine buzz.

Also, I used a martini shaker to shake everything up which really just adds to the fun, and to the frothiness.

You only need a few things to make this delicious summer drink:

  • Brewed coffee, cold
  • Cream or milk of choice
  • Sweetener
  • Caramel syrup (I used this easy six minute recipe, but left out the salt)
  • Silicone ice cube tray
  • Martini shaker, optional
Once the ice cubes are made, making a glass is so simple. Just assemble, and enjoy. It's perfect for a hot summer day.

I can't wait for you to try it!

Caramel Icebox Coffee

Caramel Icebox Coffee
Keep your cool with this refreshingly strong and sweet caramel iced coffee.
  • 10 oz. Brewed coffee, cold (I used this Starbucks Iced Coffee)
  • Frozen coffee ice cubes
  • 1-2 TB Half and Half, or any creamer
  • Caramel Syrup (I used this easy caramel recipe, minus salt)
  • Sweetener, to taste
1. To make the ice cubes, take a silicone ice cube tray and fill with cold coffee. I used the same Starbucks Iced Coffee for this. Freeze overnight, or until solid. Cubes will be syrupy even after solid. 
2. In a chilled martini shaker, add cold coffee, creamer, and sweetener to shake. You may also add a coffee ice cube here for added froth.
3. Add 4-5 coffee ice cubes (depending on size) to your glass and drizzle caramel syrup on the sides. Pour coffee mixture over top, and add extra caramel drizzle on top if desired. Serve cold.
