Iced coffee recipe

Coffee doesn't have to be served as a hot drink all the time. This iced coffee recipe will cool you down on a warm day.

This is a quick and easy iced coffee recipe using instant coffee. I make this often after I come home from a long day at work or at school to give me that little boost until it's time to go to bed.

The proportions I proposed makes an average strength coffee drink. Feel free to change them to fit your desires. Please do not to make this drink too strong (too much coffee/sugar) or your heart will start racing. It's happened to me once or twice and it's not a nice feeling.

Sometimes people will spice their iced coffees. I've listed some ideas for you to try if you wish. Start with 1/4 teaspoon and add more if you want it to smell stronger. A combination of spices/flavours could be interesting! ;)

  • If you have brewed coffee: add 1/2 cup of brewed coffee for step 1 and skip step 2 and 3, then proceed as usual for the rest of the recipe.

  • If you're using cream instead of milk: add the cream (usually 1 or 2 tablespoons is enough) after you add the sugar in step 4. Then in step 7, add water

  • If you want a black iced coffee (with instant coffee): add water instead of the milk in step 7. Also add additional coffee/sugar if it's too dilute for you (no more than 1 tablespoon of each, otherwise it's just too strong and your heart will be racing all day).
