How To Make french iced coffee

  • 1
    Make the strong coffee and place in an ice cream pail. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Allow the coffee to cool down to at least just warm. Add the other ingredients.

    Freeze. Remove from freezer 2 hours before serving if using an ice cream pail. Stir it well before serving. I serve with a punch bowl and ladle.

    Note: For quicker thawing and serving, store in smaller individual size containers. I also make an extra batch of strong coffee and freeze in ice cube trays to add to the 'slush" if wanted.
