1. Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to a low simmer. Simmer for five minutes. Let cool, then transfer to a squeeze bottle or a glass jar.
2. When ready to use, add about three to four tablespoons syrup to a 16-ounce (450-milliliter) cup of milk.
Add ice cubes and enjoy!
Notes: Did you know that Ice Java is caffeinated? I assumed it wasn’t, which is why I let my kids drink it! I like that I could use decaf in this homemade version. I’m happy when they drink milk, and if this is what will make them do it, I can live with that.
