How to make an Iced Cappuccino

What is it?

When moved to Malaysia I knew that I was on a the crest of a wave. I knew that changes were coming, i just didn't predict the how!

Malaysia has a hot and sultry heat, some days it feels like a weight on your chest, other days like being in a sauna. No matter what the day an Iced Cappuccino is the way to go. The caffeine hit minus the heat! what could be better?

As I travel between Malaysia, the UK and Australia I am surprised that the Iced Cappuccino has not taken off elsewhere. Don't be fooled, there is no equal! put away your lily white iced lattes, throw away your full bodied frappes and embrace the charming iced cappuccino. I promise you won't look back!

Iced cappuccinos are created by pouring the hot espresso coffee over ice and then pouring the steamed milk over the ice afterwards. This causes the cappuccino ingredients to cook quickly and be transformed into a refreshingly caffeinated drink. There is no pre-cooling as it is all done just before serving. Finally a light sprinkling of chocolate or cocoa is added the the froth, to complete the experience. It is served with a straw.

Make it yourself!

You can easily make this drink at home if you have an espresso machine with a steam wand. to make, first fill the glass with ice. Make the espresso and then pour over your ice. Next steam the milk and pour over the ice. Sprinkle you chocolate and then serve. Ahh delicious!

So next time you are in Asia order an Iced Cappuccino or if you are at home on a hot day with an idle espresso machine give it a go yourself!
