Iced Mocha Coffee

Alright, so this is a lame excuse of a recipe...but it's deliciousness in a glass, so I felt the need to post about it.
I love coffee. Ever since Girl Scout camp when I was a kid, I have loved the smell of coffee (the leaders would drink it in the morning and the smell would fill the dining hall). On the rare occasions that my family would go out to breakfast, my parents would get coffee and I'd always ask to smell it or have a sip (which I didn't like at the time). Once I got to college, I realized the caffeine benefits of coffee, but would only drink it mixed with half a packet of hot chocolate. Now, I love coffee. I love it hot with cream and sweetener, I love it in Caramel Macchiatos and Skinny Vanilla Lattes from Starbucks, I still love it mixed with half a packet of hot chocolate, I love coffee beans covered in chocolate, I love it as ice cream, I love it in baked goods and I love it cold.
Jerm and I have a really nice coffee maker (yay, for bridal registries and my friends at US Airways!), but I don't use it a lot. You see...Jerm doesn't drink coffee and we always have coffee at work, so every weekday I think, "I'll just have some at work." Well, this past weekend our puppy, Diesel, decided to wake up at 4:45am... so I was feeling the need for coffee and I decided to brew a pot. It was warm outside (hi, I live in AZ) so I thought, "Mmmm, iced coffee would be delicious!" And ta da, this deliciousness in a glass was born. It's cold, it's light and there is just a hint of chocolate in there. Definitely try out this drink or a version of it. What else would be good in iced coffee?
