Ok, so we saw this and had to and repost Todd Wilbur's Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Coolatta Recipe "All it takes is one slurp of Dunkin' Donuts hit frozen coffee drink to determine there is much more than concentrated coffee, sugar, and milk in there. I detect vanilla and hazelnut flavors, but adding just a bit of almond extract and some chocolate syrup completes the flavor profile. Torani makes hazelnut syrup that's perfect for this recipe - you'll find it near the coffee in your market or in a bar supply outlet. Your drink will come out lighter in color than the real thing, since the chain apparently uses caramel coloring to darken the formula. This recipe makes one 24-ounce serving - that's called "medium" at the store - or you can split it into two more modest 12-ounce servings."

1 1/4 cups strong coffee, cold (see step #1)

1 cup milk
5 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Hershey's chocolate syrup
1 tablespoon Torani hazelnut syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups ice cubes 


1. Brew strong coffee by using twice the amount of grounds required by your coffee maker. Chill the coffee in your refrigerator until it's cold.

2. Combine the cold coffee, milk, sugar, chocolate syrup, hazelnut syrup, vanilla, and almond extract in a blender and blend for 1 minute on low to dissolve sugar.

3. Add the ice and blend on high until ice is crushed and drink is smooth. Pour into a tall 24-ounce glass or two 12-ounce glasses, and serve with straws.

Makes one 24-ounce serving or two 12-ounce servings.

I drank coffee before it was cool

I drank coffee before it was coolThere was a time the generation before us basked in the gloriousness of the caffeinated high achieved from their daily cup o' joe. Over the last 50 years it's easy to see the major changes in coffee culture like whipped cream, caramel, ice, anything but coffee. Although we here, at The Cup Coffeehouse in Wantagh, are famous for our sweet Mundy Pants and other mouthwatering, candied confections, we welcome you to enjoy a cup of our house blend for just $2.00 any day. Stop in, say hi, and taste some of the best coffee in New York!
