Iced coffee with an extra PERK! This tastes like an alcoholic Frappuccino. I served these at a recent Girls Gathering and they went over fabulously. Keep the mixture separate from the ice until right before serving to prevent coffee from tasting watered down. It might curdle slightly from the creamer, but it is nothing to worry about. Put some whip cream on top and no one will know. I prefer mine without whip cream!Caramel Vanilla rimming sugar can be bought on-line at Amazon or in some specialty liquor stores. I also highly recommend it for Mud Slides. - Jessica of Savory Experiments
A blender, milk, coffee, and ice are all you need to create the perfect frothy Frappuccino at home. The key here is making sure all the elements — including the coffee — are cold or at least room temperature. Otherwise, the ice will melt and you will just have watered-down, lukewarm coffee.
An affogato (which means “drowned” in Italian) is a coffee-based beverage famed for the temperature contrast between the cold vanilla gelato or ice cream and the hot espresso or coffee that tops it. If you think about it, it may have been the affogato that inspired the Frappuccino in the first place. It’s only natural that it’s on the secret menu at Starbucks (see our “Starbucks’ Secret Menu: The Ultimate Guide”), but you don’t have to order off the menu to enjoy this treat; you can make it at home!
