Years ago I was first introduced to Vietnamese Iced Coffee (cà phê sữa đá) by a friend.  There are numerous Vietnamese restaurants in the DC/MD/VA area and after tasting this delicious drink once, I began traveling to get it on a regular basis. Vietnamese iced coffee is creamy, rich and gives me that great burst of energy you can only get from sugar and caffeine.  Bliss!  Now that I realize how simple they are to make, I can enjoy them at home whenever I please.  You need a Vietnamese coffee filter, which can be found online or at most Asian markets.  You also need chicory coffee, which can be found at most supermarkets. I prefer Cafe Du Monde.

Ingredients

  • Coffee with Chicory
  • Water
  • Sweetened condensed milk to taste

Instructions

  • Pour some sweetened condensed milk into a glass. Personally, I like this drink very sweet. I'd start with 2 tablespoons and see how you like it.
  • Boil some water. Add 2 tablespoons of coffee to the filter, screw the top on and set it on top of the glass.
  • Fill the filter all the way with boiling water, place the lid on, and allow the liquid to slowly drip into the sweetened condensed milk. This will take several minutes.
  • Once the coffee has finished dripping, stir the mixture together and pour it into a fresh glass over ice. Enjoy!
