Iced Coffee recipe

Coffee lovers its time for iced coffee ! Yep summer is here and what’s more refreshing than a chilled caffeine drink ? Here is my super simple recipe that you can make at home and no need to go out and buy expensive iced coffee anymore. Basically it’s cold coffee and all you need is coffee, milk and sugar .. then you can get fancy and add coffee flavourings and whipped cream and choc chips and all that arty pinterest type versions.

Before we get started I wanted you to know that there are TWO types of cold coffee drinks; Cold brew and Iced Coffee.

Cold brew; Hot water added to grounded coffee that is left to cool for 24 hours in the fridge and strained. Pour the cold coffee into filter/ coffee paper into a glass filled with ice cubes. Add some cold milk and syrup. 

Iced Coffee; In a cup filled with ice cubes pour strong cold coffee,

Note: Since sugar doesn’t dissolve in cold water make sure you add it before cooling. Also make sure the coffee is slightly stronger or add more shots because the ice will dilute the flavour of the coffee.
