iced coffee is a wonderful thing.
i’m a chai girl, typically, but i just can’t afford starbucks every day! i realized i can still get my caffeine (and sugar) fix without going broke or even leaving my house. which is a big plus, since i am usually stuck at home all day anyway. here’s how i do it. so very simple.
brew coffee. (i have to brew several pots since ours is a single cup pot)
put hot coffee in a container. (i use a glass pitcher)
put container in fridge until cool/cold. (cold-cold is best, but you can use your brewed coffee immediately if you don’t mind your ice melting)
grab your favorite glass.
pour milk & sugar into your favorite, however much you like. (i use about 3/4 cup milk and 1 tbsp or so of sugar- i like my coffee sweet & milky, not too coffee-y)mix that milk & sugar really well so the sugar dissolves. (i use a straw to stir because i like to drink my iced coffee with a straw)
add ice cubes. (i like 3)
top off you glass with your cooled/cold coffee. (i do it in this order because i really enjoy watching the colors mix.)
