Better than a Barista's iced coffee.

I have an expensive addiction to coffee. Recently I began playing around with making iced coffee, lattes and all kinds of caffeine laced goodies. The fallowing is way better than most iced coffee I have spent 6.00+ on.  You can play around with the syrups and coffee amounts according to how strong you want it.  I am using Nescafe because I like super strong coffee

4 tsp Nescafe or 1 cup strong chilled coffee.
2.5 tsp sugar
3stp flavored syrup ( in the coffee isle of most stores )
1/4 cup half and half.

Mix everything together until the Nescafe is dissolved and pour in an ice packed cup, top with milk and stir.

I don't recommend using the flavored creamers in the iced coffee, I use it in my hot coffee but for some reason it has a "cold fatty" taste to it in iced coffee. Stick to the syrups! There are lots of flavors to play with too, I got a coconut from Sam's and I love it! It docent have that over powered fake coconut taste, it's just right.
