I have a problem. I love iced coffee like woah.
I've made it at home tons of times, and we made it twice daily when I worked in a restaurant but I've never made it like The Pioneer Woman does. I always made it from a hot pot. After hearing tons of raves about this version I decided to give it a shot.
I'm glad I did. It tastes awesome and the entire pitcher cost me about $2.50.
Perfect Iced Coffee:
1 pound Ground Coffee (good, Rich Roast)
8 quarts Cold Water
Half-and-half (healthy Splash Per Serving)
Sweetened Condensed Milk (2-3 Tablespoons Per Serving)
In a large container, mix ground coffee with water. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature eight hours or overnight.
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.
Place coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.
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.
