It’s almost always iced coffee season in Austin, but in summer, the line grows long at Jo’s Coffee on South Congress and Second Street for a beverage they call the Iced Turbo.
The milky coffee drink has a powerful boost of caffeine that’s laced with hazelnut, chocolate and sweetened with condensed milk. Kevin Pang at the AV Club had it a few years ago, and after the flavor memory wouldn’t leave his brain, he decided to try to recreate it at home based on this blog post from a customer way back in 2010.
After seven attempts, he was happy with the result, a mixture of both espresso and cold-brewed coffee with a dash of hazelnut syrup, chocolate milk and condensed milk.
He shares his copycat recipe over on the AV Club’s website, which includes instructions for combining the mixture in a cocktail shaker for peak froth.
