Iced Coffee (OMGosh)

image

If you love iced coffee, you’ll love this.  To me this is better then Starbucks Double Shot Coffee that I order.  I have been trying to make an imitation copy of  the Double Shot but I always seem to fall short.  Seems to lack in taste till I made this .  I just didn’t have the time to be brewing espresso shots when I wanted a coffee so I thought, what if I just put the grounds into a jar with some water.  The first time I made this I of course eyeballed it, went to bed and fell asleep.  Next morning when I came down into the kitchen there it sat on the counter.  I thought it would be ruined. Not wanting to dump it, because my espresso is expensive I strained it and placed it in the fridge.  Hoping there would be nothing wrong with it when I decided to make a coffee. Well guess what, it was fine.  I now have a new best friend which I have discovered, you can use not just in baking but in drinks.  Sweetened Condensed Milk.  Oooohhhh, is it ever good!  When you marry these two ingredients together, it’s a match made in heaven.

To my surprise cruising recipes one day on different websites didn’t I find a recipe similar to this.  It was on Pioneer Women.  I was flabbergasted.  Here I was trying to make shortcuts for myself and thinking I’ve come up with a new way of doing something and it was already out there. Amazing!  Well here is my version.

My coffee of choice is espresso.  You can use what you like.

image

I placed the coffee into a jar and added the water.

image

Then I gave it a stir to make sure all the grounds were in the water.  Placed the lid on the jar and left it at room temperature.

image

After 8 hours, I place a sieve over a pot because that’s all I had.

image

Placed some paper towels into the sieve to act as a filter.

image

Then poured the coffee into the filter from the jar.  Sorry, no picture but it’s a little hard to pour the coffee, hold the sieve and take a picture.

image

From the pot I poured the coffee into a jar that would seal.  Again no picture, I need another arm to take the pictures.  Then I placed the jar in the fridge.

image

When I finally had some time to have an iced coffee, I filled the glass up with ice and added the coffee.  Don’t you just love these little jars?  You could also use a mason jar.

image

Next I added the Sweetened Condensed Milk.  This stuff I could eat with a spoon.  Funny thing is, I never have sugar in my coffee.

image

I then put a lid on the jar and shake it until it is combined.

image

Ooohhh it looks good!

image

I place a lid with a spout on top and the ring for the jar, inserted my straw and I’m mobile to go where I please, with my coffee in hand.  This for the fraction of the cost that I use to pay at Starbucks. Oh, the lid with the spout was purchased at Canadian Tire.

RECIPE

INGREDIENTS

4 ounces Espresso

4 cups of Water

Sweetened Condensed Milk

PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

In a jar combine espresso and water.  Cover and let it sit at room temperature.  I left it overnight when I first made it so now I follow that process.

Line a strainer with paper towels and pour the coffee through into a pot. From the pot into a jar with a lid that will seal. Place in fridge use as needed

ICED COFFEE

Fill a glass with ice.  Pour your coffee in and add the Sweetened Condensed Milk.  Cover with your lid and give it a good shake.  You could also add some other milk of your choice if you like with the Sweetened Condensed Milk. A good solution if you find the coffee to strong.

Enjoy!
