Don’t you just love summertime? There is a particular day in late spring where when the trees are full of leaves, the flowers blooming, the sun warming us all that I realize it is time. Time to put away my morning mug of steaming coffee and trade it in for the cool, creamy taste of iced coffee.
As you may know, I am a coffee girl. Love it. I have a French Press and grind my own beans from local roasters. Cause I’m a snob like that. And coffee tastes better that way.
Now iced coffee is a brilliant thing. When I first thought about making my own at home (because I’m too cheap for Starbucks and too lazy to drive to McDonalds) I did lots of research into all kinds of different recipes. Most were complicated and way more involved than what I had in mind.
So I came up with my own home brew. How to make iced coffee? It’s not complicated. It’s so easy it’s almost stupid. Stupid-good.
Easy Iced Coffee
4 cups double strength coffee
2 cups milk of choice (I use vanilla almond milk; half and half would probably be mind-blowing)
1/4 cup liquid coffee creamer of choice
Brew 4 cups of double-strength coffee. (So if you normally put 3 heaping teaspoons, but 6.) Refrigerate over night if possible. Combine coffee with 2 cups of milk of your choice. Add 1/4 cup of liquid coffee creamer of choice. Stir gently. Pour and enjoy!
Makes 4 servings.
I told you it ways easy! Because even on the hottest days you still need your coffee fix.
Are you a coffee-lover/snob like me?
