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!
