I don't know about where you live but it has been blistering hot here in the Atlanta area since late April. Maybe I say this every summer, but I swear it's hotter than it was last year and last year I was pregnant! Given that I now have an active 12 month old, there are days that just call for an additional cup of coffee. I am definitely hot-in-the-morning and cold-in-the-afternoon kind of coffee drinker. I don't care if it's 100 degrees outside, I still want that hot coffee. But when the afternoon lull rolls around, I usually go for iced coffee.
My coffee maker does brew cold coffee but I don't love it. When I saw this recipe on Rebecca's blog, I knew that I might have found the one. And I was right! This makes a delicious iced coffee that's perfect for a pick me up, morning or afternoon!
This is a recipe that is definitely "to taste". I like my coffee on the sweet side, so adjust accordingly. :)
2 tsp. instant coffee granules
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. sugar
3 tbsp. warm water
4 oz. milk
2 oz. ½ & ½
1. In a small jar or bowl with lid combine instant coffee, sugar, and warm water. Shake until well combined and mixture begins to foam.
2. Pour foamy mixture into a glass filled with ice and then add milk and ½ & ½. Stir to mix thoroughly.
