This is a sponsored post on behalf of Torani. I received information to facilitate today’s post as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

We welcomed September in with a heat wave here in middle Tennessee, so instead of thinking all things “fall” this weekend, I was sipping on a crazy good Cold Brew iced coffee to cool off a bit. If you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to summer either, this copycat Panera Vanilla cold brew coffee recipe is for you! Making it is so simple with just 6 ingredients! You may have everything you need on hand already. My thanks to today’s sponsor, Torani for providing the sweet vanilla goodness this recipe needs.

Iced coffees are one of my favorite warm weather indulgences. Lately, I’ve been on a serious cold brew kick because it has about 65% less acidity than regular coffee, which is helpful when I’m needing my third cup of coffee for the day! When Time allows, I make my own cold brew coffee, but don’t worry if you don’t know how or don’t have the time, just pick up a container of Cold Brew at your favorite grocery store. I shop Kroger for my ingredients, including the Torani Vanilla Syrup. Kroger stocks several varieties of Torani, including sugar free options. Use the link above to find a store near you if you don't shop at Kroger.

Have you ever used Torani Syrups? I was first introduced to them years ago, when I got the opportunity to work with them here on my blog and have loved them ever since. In case you don’t know Torani yet, here is a little bit of their story.
