My Iced Coffee Recipe!

When I tell people I like my coffee cold in the mornings, I am sure to get funny looks. I have never been much of a warm drinker mainly because my tongue would easily get burned. So I started drinking ice-coffee even in the wintertime and this is how I make it:

Make some strong black coffee or use an espresso shot (or two)

If you have a fancy coffee maskin use it. Depending on your taste in coffee, I would recommend two espresso shots and one cup of ice-cold water.
I only have this regular OBH coffee maker. It is nothing grand, but definitely the love of my life, and the driving force behind my studies. The coffee I make is this one by Ali.

Pro tip: make your coffee the night before, and have in the refrigerator to speed up the process. 

Add ice cubes to the mix

Prepare your glass by adding some ice cubes. This is a must if you are making the iced coffee from boiling hot coffee or from espresso shots.

Take a cup of the hot coffee, and mix it with equal parts of ice-cold water

I like using this cup to measure my coffee:

Personally, I like adding equal parts coffee and water. Not gonna lie, on long days, I would add a little more coffee than water. The more water you add, the less stronger the coffee taste. I like my coffee strong and dark for the most part.

and voila! A perfectly cold coffee for you to enjoy in the morning.

If you try the recipe, let me know. I am curious to know if others like this kind of coffee. I am a terrible cook, but this is the year for me to try and learn different recipes and I am taking you guys along the way. Be on the lookout for more recipes to come!

Ps: this is a great recipe to bring along with you to work or school. I like using this thermos to keep my drink hot or cold during the day. I bring around with me the large thermos. I believe it is able to carry 1.5L which is the perfect about to sip on for a day of heavy classes.

Until next time,
Take care ✨
With love, Tia.
