COCONUT CHAI ICED COFFEE

we finished the coffee bar in our studio just in time for the annual los angeles heat weave which means we had to move from hot coffee to iced. (ps we got our coffee bar credenza here!) i usually drink my iced coffee black but i also appreciate the occasional sweet coffee drink and this coconut iced coffee is the perfect amount of sweet and spicy. it was easy to put together and the simple syrup will keep for a week in the refrigerator so you can keep making this drink on repeat. – joanie
