here's my favorite recipe:
1 cup coffee, at room temperature
2 tablespoons half and half*, or more, to taste
FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
FOR THE SIMPLE SYRUP: Combine sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Let cool completely and stir in vanilla extract; set aside in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Serve coffee over ice with half and half and simple syrup, adding 1 teaspoon at a time, to taste.
Note: I make my coffee ONLY in BPA-free coffee makers, cause I strongly believe it affects taste as much as health
