perfect iced coffee

★★★★★ 1 Review

This recipe is courtesy of the Pioneer Woman, lovely lady. There 2 differences between her recipe and mine 1) I use whipping cream instead of half & half, 2) I prefer sugar as opposed to the sweetened condensed milk. Now you have to remember the secret to this drink is that should be served FRIGID NOT just cold.
