Just Like McDonald's Vanilla Iced Coffee

Just Like McDonald's Vanilla Iced Coffee

Just Like McDonald's Vanilla Iced Coffee

When I was working nights as a hotel manager/night auditor I would stop by McD's to pick up a giant cup of this iced vanilla coffee and specify very little ice, so it would last me most the night. Well I finally found out how to make this delightful eye opener and I have made a few changes that make mine even better. Try it, you'll LOVE it.

In the coffee war that's been brewing since 2007, McDonald's is emerging victorious by snagging a significant
chunk of the $11-billion coffee market away from sector-leader Starbucks. The hamburger chain's McCafe
offerings, which include premium cappuccinos, lattes, and iced coffees, scored higher in taste tests according to
Consumer Reports magazine, and the drinks come with a lower price tag than comparable beverages at the
coffeehouse chain. The Vanilla Iced Coffee appears to be a standout selection at Mickey D's, and a home clone is
simple after you get your hands on some Torani vanilla syrup. Brew up some coffee, chill it, then pour these three
ingredients over ice in a 16-ounce glass. The taste of your finished drink will be determined by the quality of your
coffee (McDonald's has its own beans), so be sure to brew your best stuff. The better the coffee you start with, the
better your clone will taste.
