I saved an article from the Pioneer Woman about making the perfect iced coffee and I’ve always wanted to try it out! So I set out to make my own version.
I normally don’t drink any caffeine in the morning, just a hot tea when it’s cold out. I don’t really like hot coffee but I love iced coffee (my fav is the McDonald’s kind. It’s large, cheap and almost cloyingly sweet but amazing). I’ve tried iced coffee in a carton but all of them are just artificial tasting. So this week, I tested out a method to make my own.
Here’s all that I needed to make the iced coffee and it was super simple. You really just need time to let the coffee grounds steep. One tip I have to share is put the water in the pitcher FIRST! The first time I tried it, I had the filters burst on me but if you let it steep (kinda like a tea bag) it works! The coffee will be a little weak but that also depends on how long you want it to chill out in the fridge.
- Coffee Grounds (I used 5 tablespoons)
- Pitcher Full of Water
- 2 Coffee Filters
- Rubber band
1. Fill the pitcher full of water.
2. Double up on the coffee filters and fill them with 5 tablespoons of your favorite ground coffee
3. Place the filters on the top of the pitcher and hold it in place with a rubber band
4. Let it steep overnight
