Coffee Syrup is easy to make and it is handy to have around. You can use it to flavor frosting and cakes or to create drinks with. A really fantastic way to make an Italian Soda, for example, is to put 2 tablespoons coffee syrup in a fluted glass. Add Club soda and finish with a dollop of whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa.
You can also make a coffee drink like chocolate milk by adding coffee syrup (to taste) to a glass of milk and stirring well. I shouldn’t have to mention homemade coffee milkshakes, homemade coffee flavored coke, or any of the other million ideas that are coursing through the corridors of my mind right now, right?
