Love Tim Hortons’ iced coffee? Try making it yourself, playing with the ingredients and portions to get it exactly how you like it!
1 cup coffee
½ cup sugar
1 cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cream or milk (to your liking)
Make your favourite coffee and let cool to room temperature.
For the simple syrup, combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool completely and stir in vanilla extract; set aside in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Pour coffee over ice with cream/milk and simple syrup, adding 1 teaspoon at a time, to taste.
Nada’s Tips & Tricks: Play with the ingredients to get variations, like different coffee strengths (dark roast, French vanilla, espresso, etc.) and change up the cream/milk (flavoured creams, whole/skim milk, etc.). Add whipped cream or ice cream (lessen the cream/milk) for a drink dessert. Be adventurous!
