This is one of those things I had been wanting to try for quite some time...
Cold Brewed Iced Coffee. I finally decided it was time when I came across
this simple recipe for iced vanilla coffee from Call me cupcake.
If you haven't checked out the blog, I highly recommend it.
It is a beautiful blog with a unique dark photographing style.
I've made this iced coffee a handful of times since I discovered it and it
never disappoints, I will definitely be making it more often now that I get to
enjoy warm sunny days (my favorite kind of days). I love what the touch
of vanilla does to the coffee, it makes all the difference.
Make yourself a cup, pick up a book and enjoy on your front porch/ backyard.
Iced Vanilla Coffee
- strong coffee
- lots of ice
- milk or cream
- vanilla syrup or vanilla extract w/ sugar
1. Put ground coffee, (use few extra spoons to make it extra strong) and
cold water in a french press, stir well, put lid on and refrigerate for a few hours,
2. When coffee is ready, gently press on the lid to get rid of coffee grounds.
3. Fill a tall glass with lots of ice. Pour cold coffee over ice, filling the glass
a little more than halfway. Add sugar to your liking with a little vanilla extract, stir.
Fill the rest of the cup with your choice of milk or cream and enjoy!
