A few years ago, I got to traverse Vietnam from the south to the north. The food was noticeably different at each stop, but one constant was the Vietnamese iced coffee, a dark roast that drips into a cup of ice and sweet, condensed milk. Normally I like my caffeine hot, but when it’s 90 degrees outside, that jolt is better served cold on the cusp of the muggy monsoon season.

The only issue with the drink is it doesn’t last long enough--it’s a little coffee and a lot of ice--but these Vietnamese coffee popsicles deliver the ice and coffee together, melting slowly to maximize the chill factor and help you cool down a hot afternoon.

Okay, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
