In our opinion, there are two ways to get out of bed in the morning: with or without a cup of coffee that you love. We’ve all been there before: you’re somewhere on the road between point A and point B, staying in a run-of-the-mill hotel after an exhausting day of travel. You wake up in the morning to get back out on the road but the only coffee option is that lone, dusty, brew-one-cup foil bag of non-descript coffee grounds.
With no coffee shop within five miles, it’s this bag… or nothing.
This would be the cup of coffee that we most certainly do not love and would definitely qualify as the one way we don’t like to start our day. Starting your day with a cup of coffee that you love – and the perfect coffee syrups to compliment its flavors – is a much better alternative, in our book.
As the summer heat starts to roll in, we’ve been focusing on iced coffee recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious. If you don’t currently have an iced drink recipe that you just love, then give the Amoretti Nutty Iced Coffee recipe a try. You might just find a new go-to treat! This recipe uses two of our favorite nutty coffee syrups, yielding an amazing caffeine concoction.
Amoretti Nutty Iced Coffee Recipe
- 2 shots espresso
- 1 ¼ pumps Amoretti Premium Pistachio Praline Syrup
- 1 ¼ pumps Amoretti Premium Macadamia Syrup
- Half and half (to taste)
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Squirt the two coffee syrups over the ice and then pull your espresso shots. Throw your shots over the ice and shake vigorously so that the espresso, ice, and coffee syrups are chilled and foamy. If your iced coffee gets too foamy in the cocktail shaker, you can burst the bubbles and froth by knocking the bottom of the shaker against the counter
Pour the contents into a tall Collins glass or your favorite cold to-go cup. Add more ice, if needed, until there’s just an inch or two of room at the top of the glass. Slowly pour half and half or milk on the foamy head of the iced coffee so that it floats on top of the ice and espresso. Don’t stir this drink; it’s meant to be layered (or “built”). Sip from the glass, or enjoy with a straw!
