Basic Iced Coffee for Hot Summer Days

by Melanie

As much as I love a hot cup of coffee, I have to admit that some days it is just too hot for coffee. Days like that are perfect for iced coffee. It is not hard to learn how to make iced coffee. This simple recipe for iced coffee allows you to brew a glass in just a few minutes.

Brew a pot of coffee a little stronger than usual; for example use around 6 or 7 tablespoons coffee to 1 1/2 cups water. After it has finished brewing allow it to cool a bit and simply pour it into a glass filled with ice. Add a little milk or cream and sweeten to taste. I prefer to use a little whipped cream instead.

When making iced coffee it is important that the coffee be brewed stronger especially with this recipe since it will dilute when poured over ice. If you find your iced coffee is too strong, just add a little cool water to your glass.

If you are looking to save a little money, try using your leftover coffee. If you have coffee left over in the morning, pour it into a pitcher and refrigerate. When you are ready for a glass of iced coffee simply pour it into a glass with a little ice and milk. Since the coffee is chilled it will not dilute as much and will still have a nice flavor.
