Sometimes, I wait until the last minute. You never do this, do you? For example, I pinned this “recipe” at the beginning of the summer, swearing this was the year I’d try to make iced coffee.
Now that summer (the perfect time for iced coffee) is nearly over, I finally got around to trying it. I didn’t realize how simple it would be. I thought there was some special trick, and that it would be a time consuming process. If you’ve made iced coffee before, you’re laughing at me right now. It’s okay.
I followed the proportions and procedure from A Beautiful Mess (what can’t those girls do, right?), but it’s literally this simple: mix coffee grounds with water, wait, strain out grounds, add something sweet, drink. I tried sweetened condensed milk in my morning cup (top pic) and some flavored creamer I had in the fridge for my afternoon cup (bottom pic). Yum!
Now that I know how easy and delicious homemade iced coffee is, I wish I would have made it sooner. Lesson learned.
Are you a coffee drinker?
