College also introduced me to iced coffee. Yum. I recently learned how to make it at home by cold brewing it, which is perfection. It tastes like starbucks. Starbucks and saving money. Recipe below a la Small Notebook

The night before, start with 1/4 cup of coarse ground coffee, and add 1 cup of cold filtered water.
The next morning add 1 more cup of water.
Strain and pour into a chilled glass over ice (makes two glasses).


I double this make it up in a large water bottle. Then, when I am ready to have it in the morning, I mix up some simple syrup in a coffee mug in the microwave. I do 2tsp sugar to 2 tsp water and microwave on high for about thirty seconds, and then just dump it over the ice before the coffee. I like added a bit of milk to mine, too.

I am so glad I live in a cultured country that has iced coffee & chicory syrup! :3
