Mint Iced Coffee (Cold-Brew)

this …

Mint Iced Coffee is the drink for summer. Made with homemade simple syrup, mint extract, fresh mint leaves, cold brew iced coffee, and heavy cream. This is one coffee recipe you'll come back to again and again.

Mint Iced Coffee (Cold-Brew)

I love iced coffee so when my friend sent me a video from Pinterest of a fresh mint iced coffee recipe floating around on the internet.

I knew I had to try it.

There is that one coffee shop called Philz Coffee that makes a mojito mint iced coffee, but to be honest, I'm a Starbucks fan for life.

I've never stepped into a Philiz Coffee chain before.

There's no difference between mojito iced coffee and this recipe. Unless you wanted to really spice things up and add some rum to yours. Mint coffee is also delicious served hot.

This recipe is super easy to make. All you need to do is make the simple syrup first which is just water and sugar. Add one cup sugar to water and boil on the stove over medium heat for a few minutes until a syrup forms.
