Wake Up, Buttercup

Happy Monday everyone! It always seems like I have the hardest time waking myself up on Monday mornings. My brain is still in weekend mode and my alarm clock insists on ruining my love affair with my bed. My savior: COFFEE!

Perfect Iced Coffee

What You Need:

  • 4 Cups Brewed Coffee, chill in fridge for atleast 30 minutes
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • Light Vanilla or Cinnamon Coffee Creamer, to taste
  • Ice

    Get Brewin’:
    Brew coffee, place in fridge until cool. In a small pot, boil the water. Add sugar/Splenda, vanilla, and cinnamon to the pot. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Let the sugar mixture cool.

    In a mug, place ice and coffee. Add sugar mixture and creamer to taste. Voila – the best iced coffee you can get without visiting the drive-thru!

    behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee.

      I haven't been able to get used to cold/iced coffee. I love mine hot, boiling hot. Eventhough it doesn't do anything at all to keep me awake anymore, but I love most of my drinks hot. Including plain water.

      I hate coffee with a passion ..but this sounds delicious! Makes me wish I liked it so I could try it out πŸ™‚

      Looks like KoolAid again for me this summer. So unhip.

      @Jessica I'm glad you tried it and enjoyed it! I love it!

      @PorkStar So you enjoy burning your mouth?! I have to wait 30 minutes after getting coffee at McD's since it's so damn hot…and by that point I'm already at work. *shakes fists*

      @Yvonne: Rock the KoolAid girl! I'll have to find a non-coffee recipe for you…

      @Cyn: Thank you so much! I will never give up coffee either. Or swearing. Amen!

      @Jenna: Definitely try it! I promise it's good.

      @Megan: I might as well sleep with my mug, that's the first thing I go in search of. πŸ™‚

      @Tasha: I love you, then! I try to drink black coffee on occassion and I just don't like it much either.

      @Rose: Thanks lady! I love Dunkin Donut's iced coffee too…I normally get a large and then I pee alllll day. I should just get Depends for days like that.

      I will totally be making this with my boyfriend on the weekend! He lives for coffee, I'm more of an Iced coffee/frap kinda girl so this is perfect for me!!


    12. Sounds pretty darn good. I have to admit, I like my iced coffee with instant coffee. Make it Greek style, Fappe!! πŸ™‚ But, this one is pretty tempting too. REally, anything with coffee. Not too picky, lol
