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.

How to Make Perfect Iced Coffee

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large container, mix ground coffee with water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.
  2. 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.
  3. Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.
  4. 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.
