Hubs and I have spent the majority of summer trying to perfect the art of iced coffee making.  I don’t actually drink coffee but I enjoyed the challenge regardless.  First, we started with cold brewing regular coffee grounds in a French Press and leaving it in the fridge overnight but hubs’s verdict was that it wasn’t strong enough.

So then we made hot coffee, put it in the cocktail shaker with ice and then added fresh ice and served.  Hubs’s verdict was that it was a bit too watered down.

Then one day I’m at Starbucks and see they have a new iced coffee blend.  I figured we should at least give it a try.  We cold brewed it in the French Press, left overnight and served the next morning.  Hubs’s verdict: really good.

And in a stroke of genius we put the leftover coffee in ice trays and froze.  So when the ice melted the coffee wasn’t watered down.  Hubs’s verdict: Starbucks Iced Blend + coffee ice cubes= iced coffee perfection.
