Fill a tall glass or mason jar with ice.
Add the chocolate syrup.
Add the milk and coffee and stir to mix everything well.
Top with whipped cream and an extra drizzle of chocolate syrup.
If you like your iced mocha sweet, add sugar or your favorite sweetener to the coffee while it’s hot.
For a stronger cup of iced mocha, freeze black coffee in ice cube trays and use instead of ice cubes.
Looking for something even easier? Give this German "Eiskaffee" a try. All you need is ice cream and cold coffee. For a mocha version, use chocolate ice cream.
If you want something cool and creamy without coffee? How about the always popular Magic Milkshakes? It's a copy cat version of a frosty ice cream drink from a particular fast food restaurant. Don't let the length of the directions discourage you. The shakes come together quickly and it won't take you long to make them.
Or are you a PSL person? Then this iced pumpkin spice latte is perfect to get you through the summer and into the fall. It's a nice change of flavors any time of the year, but come September when I'm ready for fall and the temperatures are still in the high nineties, this becomes by go-to-beverage.
And then there's ice tea. What would a HBHW newsletter on cold beverages be without the perfect iced tea recipe? Any good southerner has a pitcher of this sweet and icy stuff in the fridge. Ready to make your own? Here's how to do it. A tried and true family recipe.
The only problem with all these iced drinks is condensation. In our humid weather, the glasses start dripping with moisture before you can even sit them down. If you're a knitter, make up some of these cozies to keep your hands and more importantly the counters dry.
Last but not least, here's a blog post I wrote a while back on cool summer picnic drinks for the entire family. Make up a batch when you head out with your loved ones, or keep a pitcher or two of them in the fridge all summer long.
