It's My New Favorite Summertime Drink

Cold Brewed Iced Coffee

Mix 8 T of ground coffee with enough cold water to make 8 cups of coffee in a french press (or a mason jar).
Let the mixture sit for 12-24 hours.
Press down the grounds (or strain through a coffee filter) and then add an equal amount of water to the brewed coffee.
Store a pitcher in the refrigerator and serve over ice . . . or . . . add a can of sweetened condensed milk for a frappucino-type drink.

So delicious, even my non-coffee-drinking husband asked for a second glass.

You can read here why cold brewing makes a significant difference in the taste.

The way my family loves coffee, I'm thinking we are going have to try this- especially Amanda. She is all about the coffee drinks:)

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO trying this on Friday. Maybe tomorrow afternoon if I get time.

I've been looking for a recipe to try. I think I'll have to order me that French press I was looking at in the BErres Brothers Catalog......
