Iced Coffee



As I was making my coffee this morning, I just felt like I should send a little 1-minute "thank you" shoutout to my girl Ree (Pioneer Woman) for posting this cold brewed coffee recipe. This here done changed my game.

I know what you're thinking: "This is pretty much the worst video ever made." (Like anyone could even know that.) I'm sorry! :O) All I had was my iPhone and love in my heart. But I mean for reals, guys, you have no idea what a spring it puts in my step each morning to know that there is a pitcher of this roasted gold waiting in my fridge. It is my new favorite and most cherished ritual. I have been trying to nail the perfect iced-coffee-at-home for years! 

Here are the details of my particular version of the perfect iced coffee experience:
Use Rhee's method (so easy! basically, just pour cold water over coffee grounds, wait overnight, and strain) to cold brew that darkest roast I can find.
Pour over ice. Make sure it's the kind of ice you like. This totally matters. I like cubed ice in a bag from the store.
Add a splash of organic vanilla almond milk.
I should also add that the cup you use matters. I really feel like it tastes better out of a clear glass, so you can see how beautiful it is. I actually ordered plastic cups with pretty black straws from amazon because it makes me feel like a kitchen barista and makes my heart so happy. But actual glasses are elegant, too. 

Of course, that's all just my silly stuff, you can do whatever you want. :O) But blow a kiss to the Pioneer Woman as you drink it! She's a gem. 

Happy Saturday, Gorgeous! 
Love you so!

  4. You're hilarious! I love this video and also the Napoleon Dynamite reference! ;-) (For some reason that's one of my favorite lines in it!). I love iced coffee, but mine would have to be decaf. My big problem with drinking cold vs hot drinks is that I tend to drink them too fast. And more than one cup of regular caff -- I'd be awake for a week! Lightweight...

  10. LOVE IT!!! I like to make this decaf since I only have two cups of the "leaded" stuff per day, and I like to drink this AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE... :) Also, I love cocnut milk or flax milk, too!!!! YAY!!!
