So one day I stopped at McDonald's and got a delicious little treat, otherwise known as the Iced Caramel Coffee. While I was drinking it, I decided I should find a recipe for it and learn to make this on my own...thus saving $$$$ :-)
I stumbled across the webpage of Pioneer Woman
in which she detail the process of making homemade Iced coffee. With the process in mind, I now had to go and get the ingredients (as I had NONE!).
Off I went to Walmart to pick up Seattle's Best Cinnamon Bun coffee grounds, coffee filters and CoffeeMate caramel.
Next step was to create my own version. So here is my step-by-step process. Hope you enjoy and maybe get inspired yourself!
I started with a large glass pyrex container, poured a mound of coffee grounds in and topped those with water. I let that sit for at least 8 hours, although for my convienence, it seems they sit for longer.
The items needed for making such a wonderous drink:
- two coffee filters
- glass container to store in
- scoop of sorts
And then I reveal the coffee mixture, which I am sure is pure crack at this point.
I then place the two coffee filters in the strainer and the strainer on the glass container. It is now ready to begin the magic!
So now that I have filtered all the mixture through the strainer and coffee filters, I can begin to pour it into my coffee carafe! And from there...I can make my own iced coffee!
I pour the coffee concentrate atop ice cubes, then top off with milk and creamer to my desired likeness!
