1. Iced Caramel Coffee
Caramel coffee is a good choice for siblings day because it combines the sweetness of sugar with the robust flavor of coffee. This drink will remind you of the sweet times you and your sibling shared in the past.

Syrup Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup water, divided
  • 1 teaspoon corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt.

1. To make the syrup, heat 1/4 cup water, the corn syrup and the sugar in a saucepan. Stir constantly until everything is dissolved.
2. Let the mixture boil for 3 minutes, or until it turns an even, light brown color.
3. Remove from heat, then stir in the remainder of the water, vanilla extract and salt.
4. Pour the syrup into a pourable container and let cool completely before using.

Drink Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup brewed coffee
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons caramel syrup.

1. Brew the coffee using the Mr. Coffee® Advanced Brew 5-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker or your favorite Mr. Coffee® Coffee Maker.. Use more grounds than you normally would so that the coffee is extra bold.
