Put a little sweet spice in your iced coffee with this delicious recipe.

Horchata Ice Coffee Recipe

The black in this beverage comes from the strong brewed iced coffee and the blanco comes from the horchata that so beautifully clouds this beverage to create caffeinated, cinnaminy sweetness. There is a golden rule to making a great iced coffee that cannot be broken – let the brewed coffee cool! If you try to chill coffee with ice it will be watered down and undrinkable. I would also consider adding the coffee or horchata to an ice tray so as your ice melts the beverage will only be more delicious!

Out of my slight feeling of guilt I do need to mention that I am not making my own horchata. I will at some point in life but my neighborhood taqueria does a fine job so I will stick with there’s. If you feel like testing out a recipe, please do, but plan ahead!

  1. Oh my god I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this before! This is brilliant! I wish I had a near by taqueria but alas, I’m now on the east coast and I’ll have to try that recipe. Great post.
