Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

The iced hazelnut coffee coolers can be made ahead of time to save you some prep time during the busy mornings. The best way to make these in advance is to prepare the coffee mixture and chill it in the fridge until you are ready to serve. However, do not add ice and whipped cream until just before serving. This helps prevent dilution of the iced coffee and ensures that the whipped cream stays fluffy and holds its shape.

If you have leftovers, transfer them into an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. You can reheat the cold coffee in a microwave-safe cup for about 30-45 seconds or until hot. Alternatively, you can pour it into a pot and warm it up over medium heat on the stove.

When reheating, note that some separation may occur between the liquids, but this can be easily remedied by stirring vigorously or shaking well before reheating.

It is worth noting that if you plan to make a larger batch of hazelnut coffee cooler, we recommend not adding ice cubes as it tends to melt and dilute your drink over time. Instead, store in the fridge until ready to serve and then add ice cubes directly to individual glasses when serving. This ensures that you will still end up with a refreshing hazelnut cooler without compromising on flavor strength from diluted iced coffee.

Overall, with proper storage and reheating techniques, you can still enjoy a delicious cup of hazelnut iced coffee up to a few days after making it- perfect for those busy weekdays!

Tips for Perfect Results

 Can't decide between iced coffee and milkshakes? This drink has the best of both worlds!
Can’t decide between iced coffee and milkshakes? This drink has the best of both worlds!

If you want to make sure your iced hazelnut coffee coolers turn out perfectly every time, here are a few tips I’ve learned as a barista:

Firstly, make sure your instant coffee is completely dissolved in the water before adding any other ingredients. Stirring vigorously for about a minute should do the trick.

To add some extra flavor and depth to the drink, sprinkle some ground cinnamon into the coffee mixture while stirring. Not too much, though – half a teaspoon should suffice for two cups of coffee.

If you’re someone who prefers a sweeter drink, consider using hazelnut creamer or adding another tablespoon of hazelnut syrup to your drink. Keep in mind that this will make your drink quite sweet so adjust according to taste preference.

For those trying lactose-free options, almond milk works great as an alternative to regular milk. Also swapping hazelnut flavored creamer or liquid for regular milk also makes for a great lactose-free option.

If you’re making more than four cups in one go, it’s usually best to make two separate batches rather than trying to mix it all at once. This ensures they won’t be over diluted, resulting in better-tasting coffee and overall boosting up the quality and taste of the recipe.

Lastly, don’t skimp on the ice cubes! If you keep them small and numerous instead of big chunks, it will help keep the drink cold without watering it down too quickly. You could even use blended ice instead of standard cubes for that smooth mouth-feel similar to blended cold beverages.

Follow these tips, and I guarantee your end result will be a refreshing hazelnut iced coffee cooler that’s perfect for any summer day!
