How To Make Perfect Iced Coffee At Home Recipes
Saturday, June 15, 2013
Brewed coffee poured over ice and adding your favorite flavorings is hardly a recipe. Whether it be served black, flavored or with a touch of cream you will have the perfect iced coffee treat that is alot less expensive than going to the pricey coffee establishments. Really the best coffees are made from being fresh perked over ice however in your busy schedule feel free to make it however you like from your fast coffee makers it just won't be as special.
Amazing what they charge for such an easy drink.
Here's all you do. See the tip at the end for your ice cubes!
Be sure to brew a good grade coffee and if all possible DONT USE A COFFEE MAKER.... I love my old fashioned perked coffee and fresh ground beans. Something you will still enjoy as it sits overnight in the refrigerator as it strengthens in flavor. Brew and store away till the next day.
In the morning add the ice in your cup or glass first. Pour the chilled coffee over the ice
(see tip below).
Add any flavoring of choice or plain with cream, sugar or black.
During the day:
For those who enjoy your coffee with alcohol add a shot of Amaretto, Frangelico, Godiva or the many other choices of sweet liqueurs out there but wait until brunch at least!
If you like cream top it off with a little cream. Add whipped cream on top or keep it skinny with none!
That's it enjoy!
Here some suggestions to try that are easy to have ready:
Vanilla Iced Coffee:
1 cup strong vanilla flavored black coffee brewed cooled
1 can evaporated milk room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
Place in a blender until smooth. Chill. Pour over ice (see tip below) in a glass or cup.
Tip: Fill ice cube trays with brewed coffee or a mixture of cream and coffee (or liqueur if you prefer) and freeze. Take them out of the trays when frozen and add to freezer bags to use them in your coffee drinks anytime!
