Absolute GENIUS!!! My husband and I love Starbucks' and even McDonalds' iced mochas and iced coffees, but they're so ridiculously expensive! A cheaper alternative for a while was to buy International Delight Iced Coffee, but even that was expensive--half a gallon for four bucks or so! Now, I can use stuff I have on hand and just buy the syrup--waaaaay cheaper, and my husband is in love with this stuff! I made a caramel version with caramel syrup, and it was sweet, but still awesome. Thanks, Wendycain!
EDIT: I made this iced coffee again today, but instead of freezing the coffee cubes, I just mixed it up with some coffee that had cooled off, and mixed it up in a big 4-cup measuring cup. (Make sure you put the sugar in with the coffee first and stir well; if you put the milk in at the beginning, it'll be too cold to dissolve the sugar.) I made it with the carmel syrup again, and added an extra cup of coffee to the original 1 1/5 cups so that it wouldn't be super sweet. Then, I poured over ice to still make it iced coffee. A little less fuss and planning, and still awesome!
