The Irish heatwave is officially in full swing (however long it may last) so that means one thing and one thing only: iced coffee all day, every day.
But did you know they're just as easy to make yourself at home? Follow these tips for the best iced coffee you'll ever have.
- First off, iced coffee will always taste better when brewed cold and kept refrigerated overnight. Combine one part coffee to 4.5 parts room temperature, filtered water in a pitcher or large container and pop it in the fridge to steep. (So for 8 cups of coffee, use 1.5 cups of grounds.)
- Strain the brew using a French press and dilute with water to taste - the concentrated brew can be quite strong.
- Freeze brewed coffee in an ice cube container so that you aren't watering it down too much with ice and sweeten with a dash of cinnamon.
- No time to wait for the coffee to brew overnight? Simply grab a cocktail shaker, throw in the hot coffee and your coffee ice cubes and shake until cool.
The ultimate treat to cool down with on these hot summer afternoons.
