It is made by the combination of milk and coffee syrup (which can be bought from any grocery store in Rhode Island). Even fierce brand loyalties exist for coffee syrups between popular big brands and smaller artisanal ones. 


This magical syrup is made after cold brewing coffee is combined with sugar becomes a thick syrup, which is sold in stores. The syrup is then stirred in varied proportions in milk. The common ratio of syrup to milk is 1:4.
