Once the first really warm day hits, we know it's time to make the annual switch to iced coffee. Brooklyn's Supercrown Coffee Roasters takes the icy favorite one step further with an espresso milkshake sure to give you the jolt you need. Strong espresso and milk are blended with vanilla ice cream for a cold, rich milkshake.
We know not everyone has an espresso machine at home, so feel free to substitute strong brewed coffee. Just brew a batch with half of the normal amount of water for a concentrated pot of joe. Of course, don't forget to let the coffee cool completely before adding it to the blender.
