Have you ever had Thai iced coffee? Also called Oliang, which means black and iced, Thai iced coffee is a popular drink served in Thailand and China. It’s typically a strong and bold brew that is served unsweetened. Now you can find them served sweetened, and that is how I was originally introduced to this awesome iced coffee, and it also happens to be my personal favorite way to drink it. I’m going to share my favorite Thai iced tea sweetened recipe and I think you all will love it!
To begin, brew a strong cup of coffee. It doesn’t matter which coffee you choose but remember, the point of Thai iced coffee is that it is bold. But you can use whatever your heart desires. To sweeten the coffee, this recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk. It might sound strange, but holy smokes it’s magical!
Allow the coffee to cool to room temperature and reserve about two cups. Mix together the sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk in a small mixing bowl. Then pour the coffee over ice in a tall glass and top off with the combined milks to taste. I use a dollop, or just enough to get the coffee slightly sweetened. If you’re feeling fancy, add a dash of ground cinnamon to the top.
Try to go without a second glass once you’ve finished the first, it’s decadently good and difficult to resist!
