Classic Rhode Island Coffee Milk

What You'll Need:

-Dave's All Natural Coffee Syrup
-Ice Cold Whole Milk

Directions: This is the classic Rhode Island Style Coffee Milk. As pure and basic as you can get...

Fill an eight ounce glass with ice cold whole milk. Add three generous tablespoons of Dave's All Natural Coffee Syrup, stir and enjoy.

Note: Although we recommend whole milk for the best flavor, skim and milk substitutes may be used. Note that using milk substitutes tend to mask the true coffee goodness and will bring out more caramel flavor in the syrup.

Whip (slowly at first) butter and powdered sugar until the sugar has been incorporated. Increase to medium speed and add Dave’s Coffee Syrup, mixing for 3 minutes.
