Ingredient notes & substitutions
Hot brew coffee
- make it a bit stronger than usual, if you can, since the ice will water it down a bit.
- instead of hot brew coffee you can use cold leftover coffee or cold brew coffee, and if you have an espresso machine you can use two shots of espresso for one vanilla iced coffee.
can be switched for vanilla extract in the same amount

Tips & Tricks
Cold brew coffee
makes it even better - and then I might even skip the milk
Add more or less vanilla sugar
depending on how much vanilla flavor you would like
Add more or less milk
to suit your taste - or skip it completely
Adding your vanilla sugar
(or other seasoning) when the coffee is still hot makes it easier to get it to dissolve completely
Make it sweeter
by adding a teaspoon of sugar together with the vanilla sugar
Make it vegan
by using non-dairy milk
Make an iced mocha
by adding a teaspoon of cocoa powder (sweetened or unsweetened, depending on your tastes) together with the vanilla sugar
Freeze leftover coffee in an ice cube tray
and use to cool your ice coffee in the future. This way the ice doesn't water down the coffee.
Make it the day before
and don't add ice, just let it cool down a bit in room temperature and then store in the fridge - then grab it the next morning and add ice if you like
