"I couldn't find the syrup so I made my own. I don't think it reduced by half after the 30 minutes of simmering because I ended up with 2 cups of coffee syrup. I just added all of it to 2 quarts of skim milk and it's delicious!"

"This was delicious!! I love iced coffee and knew I had to try this. I will be keeping this in the fridge at all times. I made my own syrup like directions said but did not cook it on the stove. I just mixed the hot coffee with sugar then added it to the milk."

"This recipe couldn't be any easier. I don't drink coffee, but the kids compared it to those bottled frappuccino drinks they love. First batch disappeared in minutes."
