Vietnamese Iced Coffee With a Twist

Posted by

As summer is approaching I love having a Vietnamese Iced Coffee. Traditionally Vietnamese Iced Coffee uses a dark roast blend which is roasted with rum and french butter. To make a traditional Vietnamese Coffee you will need a "Vietnamese Coffee Phin Filter" and condensed milk. I am going to add a extra step to this easy recipe by shaking the iced coffee in and cocktail shaker. This enhances the creaminess of the coffee and adds an extra layer foam that looks just like Cappuccino. Enjoy our easy recipe!
