Recipe Notes

Original recipe: Paula Deen’s Vanilla Coffee Syrup You can store this in any kind of container you want, but consider convenience. If you have an empty store-bought syrup container, you could pour some of this in and have an easy-to-pour bottle. We recently finished off a bottle of soy sauce and I am using that to dispense my syrup; I poured the extra into a mason jar.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Fresh Espresso
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2-1/2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Tbsp. Pectin Optional

Instructions

  1. Add sugar to espresso; still until dissolved. Stir in remaining ingredients. Chill and serve cold.

Recipe Notes

Pectin can be found in the canning section of your grocery store and is used to thicken the drink. Unflavored gelatin can also be used as a substitute. I think the drink is just fine without adding either, so I leave them out.
