Recipe by Sweet'N Low®
"Cold-brewed coffee poured over coffee ice cubes makes the best iced coffee. It takes a bit of planning, but its full, rich flavor makes the wait worthwhile. The ideal coffee for this cold drink is a blend of mid-roasted beans with moderate acid. Using a dark roast and beans high in acid produces a sharper, more bitter result."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is one of my favorite summer drinks to make. I like to make a big container of cold brewed coffee (Pioneer Woman's recipe is my go-to recipe) and keep it in the fridge for recipes like this. I like to use Splenda sweetener but sometimes, I'll use Starbucks' sugar free coffee syrups. When I make my iced coffee, I like to put my coffee ingredients in a Ball jar, slap on a lid and shake until the ingredients are well mixed. Then, all I have to do is grab a straw and drink right out of the jar.
I thought this tasted alright, but found the recipe to be quite quirky. Who makes coffee today, by this cold brewed method? What is the point when a pot or cup of coffee can be made and refridgerated. To top, it would not have to be hand strained. I may have tried something like that in college, before I had a coffee pot. Maybe, a little more explanation on this would have been helpful. It would be rather time consuming to make the coffee ice cubes and then the cold brewed coffee separately. I have a very favorite iced coffee from the site that specifies the amount of milk amount too, and it comes out perfect. I had some tiramisu flavored coffee I made into ice cubes and decided to try it with this. I used less sweetener than suggested, but iced coffee really needs milk or cream in it. I can't see how that is an optional ingredient. It just tastes like coffee with ice cubes without it. Any iced coffee made at home still beats paying for it at a coffee shop. Try flavored coffee, it worked pretty well in it anyway.
Good recipe, tastes much better with sugar. Also, 'Sweet and Low' is extremely dangerous.
I liked the flavor! I also liked the idea of freezing coffee for ice cubes, so one doesn't water the coffee down with ice water cubes. :-}
