I am not ashamed to say I frequent Starbucks. Their coffee makes me happy.
That said, I do try to make and drink coffee at home most days as opposed to buying out. I brew my strong 12 ounces and splash in some half and half and do alright.
Some days, like today, I want a yummier-than-usual coffee drink, and I don't plan to be out and about, and even if I do go out I just don't feel like forking over three bucks.
So I make this Maple Cinnamon Coffee.
I make enough for a hot cup in the morning and then later I ice the rest and add milk, 1 to 1, and it is a lovely iced coffee drink. I don't do the whipped cream usually, just my half and half or un-whipped heavy cream. And the amount of maple syrup she calls for is a little too sweet for me, but you'll have to experiment to see what you like.
