Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee

I halved the recipe and used 8 oz of coffee and 4 quarts of cold water

Let it soak overnight

Give your pitcher a cool turban

Here is how to make some good cold-brewed iced coffee. This recipe comes directly from the Pioneer Woman blog, which has lots of other great recipes too! Here is the actual recipe link.

  • 1 pound Ground Coffee (good, Rich Roast)
  • 8 quarts Cold Water
  • Half-and-half (healthy Splash Per Serving)
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk (2-3 Tablespoons Per Serving)
  • Note: Can Use Skim Milk, 2% Milk, Whole Milk, Sugar, Artificial Sweeteners, Syrups...adapt To Your Liking!
Preparation Instructions (Adapted from Imbibe Magazine):
In a large container, mix ground coffee with water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.

Line a fine mesh strainer with cheesecloth and set over a pitcher or other container. Pour coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all liquid to run through. Discard grounds.

Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.

To make iced coffee, pack a glass full of ice cubes. Fill glass 2/3 full with coffee liquid. Add healthy splash of half-and-half. Add 2-3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk (can use plain sugar instead) and stir to combine. Taste and adjust half-and-half and/or sweetened condensed milk as needed.

Plus Coffee

Plus Milk

(I used 1/2 cup chocolate milk for this one)
