But really, how hard can it be? They have all the ingredients. So one day I went to my favorite cafe [Zannas] and explained how I wanted my coffee. Ignoring their shock and disgust, I assured them that yes, I was serious.
So this is what I told them . . . .
Take two shots of espresso and pour it over ice . . .
then bring me water and milk on the side . . .
and I'll take care of the rest . . .
. . . and presto! I have my perfect Iced Americano. It was over a year ago I gave those fateful instructions and now all my friends go in to order 'Brittany's Special Coffee' [I just say my special coffee]. There have been variations, such as people adding vanilla, but I remain true to the original.
