A few weeks ago we got to visit with my brother and his family. They were in the United States for a visit from Vietnam. We were lucky to be able to spend some time with them and their kids. Miss O is only a month a part in age to one of her cousins. It was fun to see them interact and play.
Even though they came half way around the world and trekked with two kids and all of the gear that comes with two kids they kindly brought us some foodie Vietnam finds. I mean what better gift can you think of than chocolate and coffee?
We have been the recipient of Vietnamese coffee before and man is it good. Maybe it is because I know it is authentically made from across the world but it is so much better than the typical run of the mill coffee from the store. Even the good stuff. Anyway, said coffee is good own its own but for a while now I wanted to try out Vietnamese Iced Coffee. The concept is pretty simple, add sweetened condensed milk to chilled iced coffee. I just haven't done it yet. Until last week. It was hot. I was hot and grumpy and tired.
Well if you are hot, grumpy or tired or all three try out a glass of Vietnamese Iced Coffee. It is sure to turn you bad mood upside down.
Feel free to use regular coffee, it is still good and worth having. Many a times now I make quick cup from the Keurig for a single afternoon treat. A cup of Vietnamese Iced Coffee is cool and refreshing and oh so sweet.
