Ice Ice Baby.

Alert:: This post is not intended for those who abhor coffee. After typing that statement I realize that was an abomination. Fellow coffee lovers, short and tall, grande and venti, I found a simple recipe for iced coffee. It's not rocket science, but there is an art to the making of the perfect iced coffee. Now I won't get into the particulars and snobbery associated with coffee beans and where you should be purchasing them, but I will recommend you give this iced coffee concentrate a try, if you're an iced coffee lover.

The Pioneer Woman is a blog (really a well-rounded website) I've known about and have visited occasionally, but this past week I've been paying close attention to it. I feel ashamed for not having "plugged" this sooner because this is a site worth of plugging, drooling, and lusting over. I've managed to print several recipes, one of which, was her recipe for the perfect iced coffee.

I'm the kind of girl who can't drink hot beverages on hot days. Sue me, I'm a temperamental lady. I'm making a conscious effort not spend so much money at coffee shops unless I'm buying coffee beans so finding this recipe was immediately of interest to me. I made half a batch of the concentrate over the weekend and have enjoyed several glasses of this refreshing beverage. I chose to use a lesser quality of beans for it, but I'm quite happy with the results. I sweetened my iced coffee with lowfat milk and sweetened condensed milk, because I'm a caffeinated gangsta.


  1. I know!!! This summer heat beckons me to drink it!
