During the beginning of the hot days and summer here are a few iced coffee recipes that you can prepare for your lack of water. Before the recipes read our little tips for making the perfect iced coffee drinks.
Tips For Making The Perfect Iced Coffee Drink
- Always use cold coffee, unless otherwise specified. Hot coffee will melt the ice and make the drink watery.
- To make a simple iced coffee, pour chilled coffee over ice cubes made with coffee. This will keep the coffee strong, even as the weather gets warmer.
- Be sure to check the instructions on your blender before crushing ice. You may want to try using restaurant-style ice for blended drinks- it’s easier on the blender and gives the drink a nice “slushy” texture.
- We recommend using filtered water to brew your coffee-the minerals present in tap water can negatively affect the taste of the brewed coffee.
