Iced Coffee


I'm a little excited.  Maybe I will try to pull an all nighter... Who am I kidding.  I haven't done that since freshman year of college, but if it happens I am prepared.  I still have half a pitcher of perfectly rich and cold iced coffee in the frig.  My Starbucks addiction always gets a little out of hand when the temperature changes.  In the fall all the sudden, I want hot lattes all the time, and in the summer I crave a big ol' glass of iced coffee to sip on.  This is a {Pioneer Woman} recipe so you know you can trust it.  I modified it so I could make it in our tiny apartment kitchen {trust me you'll understand when you see how much it makes}. 


1 Gallon of Water {I am lazy and didn't want to use our tap water}
8 oz Ground Coffee


1.   Grab the biggest bowl you own and combine the water and coffee grounds. Stir a little bit so the grounds are not all sitting on the top of the water. 

2.  Clean out your frig so you can fit the bowl in there.  Allow grounds and water to steep for at least 8 hours.  I allowed mine to steep over night.

 3.  Grab a pitcher and put a mesh stainer with a cheese cloth over the opening.  If you don't have a cheese cloth you can use a paper towel or coffee filter.  I had to use several different paper towels. 


I added some cream and sugar... I'm such a sissy. 

Pretty dang amazing.  Now I can drink iced coffee whenever I want!  Not sure if that is a good thing...


I might need to back off the caffeine.  Funny story.  The night I made this I had a "nightmare" that the water and coffee didn't mix at all.  In the morning I went and checked first thing that it was just a dream.  Alright lovelies, I am headed of to find a party dress in my closet because its my birthday this weekend!
