Make Your Own Iced Coffee

I had some friends over for dinner last week, and I served iced coffee with dessert. Everyone really enjoyed it and wanted to know how to make it at home. There is NO WAY I pay $2.50 a glass for iced coffee when I can make it so easily and cheaply at home. Check it out....

Make Your Own Iced Coffee

Your favorite ground coffee
A full coffee pot of water
2% milk
sweeteners: sugar or artificial

Make your regular pot of coffee, but DOUBLE the amount of ground coffee you use. Brew the coffee as usual. Pour the coffee into a covered pitcher. (NOTE: The hot coffee will discolor a plastic pitcher, so use an old or cheap one.)  Allow enough time for the coffee to chill in the refrigerator.
Place ice in a glass. Pour the iced coffee about 1/2 to 2/3 full in the glass. Top off with the 2% milk. Add your favorite sweetener and stir.
