Recently, my husband and I were at McDonald’s (dollar drink days!) and he bought me an iced coffee. Although I’m a huge coffee drinker, I had never really gotten into the iced variety (maybe because I’m already always cold). 😉
To my surprise, I really enjoyed it! And since I realized how easy a great iced coffee is to make at home (and probably even cheaper than $1), I haven’t stopped guzzling them.
Here’s my oh-so-simple recipe:
- Strong brewed coffee (preferably cooled)
- Ice (duh!)
- Sweetened/flavoured coffee whitener (such as Coffee Mate)
- 35% cream/whipping cream (why be skimpy?)
Fill a glass about halfway with ice. Add the brewed and cooled coffee, again until about the halfway mark. Pour in a *splash* (technical term) of coffee whitener, and another splash of the 35% cream. Fill the glass the rest of the way with milk, and stir it up.
Adjust all of the amounts to suit your preference. I also use lactose-free milk in mine, because, well…you know.
I’m thinking of making a large jug of this concoction next week, when I plan to have a few ladies over. Do you think they’ll like it?
If you make it, let me know in the comments what you think!
