A couple of months ago my sister introduced me to my first Philz coffee. Sadly, I have to make quite a trek to sip on one, so I have resorted to whipping up my own…
Philz Copycat Mint Mojito
- Coffee Concentrate
- Mint Syrup
- Milk or Cream
- I mixed about 8 oz of coffee with 2 tablespoons mint syrup and 2 oz of milk, but it totally comes down to preference – whether you like it sweeter, less concentrated, etc.
For a less “G rated concoction, simply add a shot (or two) of Kahlua and stir – this is Fun Drink Friday after all! 🙂
I came across this Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate at Trader Joe’s and was excited to find something to take the work out of iced coffees this summer. If you want to make your own, simply (or not so simply) follow these steps.
The mint simple syrup is another easy one. Just mix 1/2 cup of boiling water with 1/2 cup sugar and a large bunch of mint (one whole portion you would buy at the store). Stir until sugar dissolves and let steep 5-10 minutes or until syrup is very minty tasting… you just don’t want to leave it for a long period of time for fear of it becoming bitter (fyi).
Once your syrup and concentrate are ready just add milk (coconut milk would be a great non-dairy option), stir and enjoy!
