A fresh, homemade simple syrup makes everything better, especially when it's made with a fragrant vanilla bean. Vanilla is one of our favorite flavors (How could it not be? We love our Madagascar Vanilla!), and using it in a creamy, refreshing latte is the best way to welcome springtime!

This vanilla simple syrup can be infused into all of your cold brew beverages with ease. Give our Madagascar Vanilla more of a sweet kick, or mix it in to Magic City Mocha for a smooth flavor. Vanilla really shines in our New Orleans Style.


For the simple syrup:

2 cups sugar

2 cups water

2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract

1 vanilla bean (optional)

For the latte:

Icebox Coffee New Orleans Blend Concentrate

Milk of choice (almond, cashew, 2%, etc.)


In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, bring sugar and water to a boil. Cook until the mixture thickens, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract and vanilla bean paste. Allow to cool. Keep in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Add Icebox Coffee New Orleans Style concentrate, milk and vanilla syrup to taste to a glass. Shake and serve over ice.
