Instructions for an Iced Annihilator:

1. Brew your espresso or regular coffee and leave it to cool to room temperature.

2. Fill your serving glass halfway with ice. (Tip: you can make your ice out of coffee to avoid getting your drink diluted by melting ice.)

3. Mix your chocolate macadamia nut syrup with your milk in a different container and froth using a frothing wand.

4. Pour the mixture into your serving glass.

5. Add your now-room-temperature espresso or coffee and stir.

Instructions for a Blended Annihilator:

1. Brew your espresso or coffee.

2. Add your ice, chocolate macadamia nut syrup, milk, and coffee into your blender.

3. Blend for approximately 30 seconds.

4. Pour into a serving glass, then garnish with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.

Instructions for a Hot Annihilator:

1. Brew your espresso or coffee.

2. Heat your milk. You can do this one of two ways: pour the milk into a microwave-safe container and heat it inside the microwave to bring it to a warm temperature. Alternatively, you can use a saucepan over low heat, occasionally stirring so it doesn't get scorched.

3. Add your chocolate macadamia nut syrup into your cup, then pour your espresso and warmed milk and stir.

4. Add the whipped cream and drizzle the chocolate syrup to garnish.

Now, you can enjoy the Annihilator three ways without leaving your home. Plus, you can show off your amateur barista skills to your friends and family. While you're at it, why don't you try this Dutch Bros Caramelizer recipe?
