    I made this for a friend and she was thrilled with the results. (I enjoyed it too!)

    Tried the make-your-own kind. Easy to make, but needs to be used up relatively soon.

    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!

    I loved being able to make my own syrup! I reduced the sugar by half and the taste was just as delicious. Thank you for submitting this keeper!

    Great drink! I made the syrup myself and it is like a coffee house drink. I will definitely keep this on the hand.

    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.
