The recipe for this iced coffee was originally posted by Christy Grigor at allrecipes, but I tweaked the recipe to suit my taste. It only takes a few minutes to make, so if I'm in the mood for an iced coffee in a moments notice, this is the one I always make.

How to Make Easy Iced Coffee

Step-by-Step

  1. For this recipe you will need a large size glass jar with a tight fitting lid. (I use an 8-ounce glass jar that the instant coffee came in. It is equivalent to holding 3 cups of liquid.)
  2. Place the instant coffee and sugar in a glass jar.
  3. Add the 'hot' water to the jar, place lid on jar, and seal jar tight. Shake the jar vigorously for about 15-20 seconds.
  4. Remove lid from the jar, add the milk, and vanilla, if using, and then swirl the jar around for a bit.
  5. Add the coffee to a tall beverage glass which has been filled with ice, and enjoy your iced coffee.
  6. *Note: I usually use Folgers or Maxwell House Instant Coffee when making this iced coffee, but if you use Taster's Choice 100% Columbian Instant Coffee, I would decrease the amount of coffee to 2 tsp. I have found the 100% Columbian Coffee has a much stronger taste to it, but I also think it makes this iced coffee taste great! Also, when adding the 'hot' water, I heat the water in a small saucepan ontop the stove. One more thing, I prefer to use ice cubes that are large in size, as they don't dilute the ice coffee as quickly as the smaller cubes do.
