Yes, it sounds bizarre, but one of the newest trends in iced coffee is, the coffee lemonade. Similar to an Arnold Palmer, except without the iced tea, this unusual drink combines citrus and caffeine, for a bold and refreshing taste. So, ditch your black coffee — or if you're like me, your sugary, creamy latte concoction — and give this drink a taste. We all love lemonade, right? Might as well mix it up with coffee, since we all know we're (caffiene) addicts!
“I approached this recipe in that same way that I approach making Arnold Palmers: just combining iced coffee and already-made lemonade results in a drink that doesn't taste enough like either for my liking." Says Sam Leontin, KRUPS Brand Ambassador and Champion Barista, "So instead I've essentially replaced all of the water in my recipe for fresh lemonade with iced coffee, and then toned down the lemon and the sugar just a touch to bring them into balance with the coffee."

Combine ingredients in a pint glass. Stir gently, top with ice, and serve with a colorful straw! Feel free to adjust lemon juice and simple syrup to taste.
For simple syrup: combine equal parts granulated sugar and hot water, and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.
