I used whole milk to make this recipe as it has the fullest flavor and makes for a great addition. However, if you want to switch to lower-fat milk or even a milk alternative like soy milk or almond milk, feel free to do so.
To cool the drink altogether, you’ll need a few ice cubes ready in the freezer. If you plan on sitting out in the sun while enjoying this excellent drink, I suggest using coffee ice cubes instead.
Coffee ice cubes are made using cooled coffee that has been frozen in an ice cube tray or ice cube bag.
