Iced coffee

One of my new things to do almost everyday is drink an iced coffee! I don't know about you, but I have never been a coffee drinker, and hate hot coffee. I actually do have a coffee maker, but it is simply for making coffee that I purposly let get cold. ;)

This is also a great thing to do with extra coffee from the morning...don't throw it away!
Most people roll out of bed just longing for that hot cup in their hands, but I rather have the fresh smell of coffee in the morning, and the drinking it later in the day when I REALLY need it.
 Sometimes I am impatient and I use hot coffee for an iced drink, but keep in mind your drink may be a little more watery when the ice does melt.

Having 2 kids and a hardworking (aka. never home) husband, I really enjoy this little pick-me-up in the afternoons.

Here's what I do to make mine when I am patient enough to wait for it to get cold.

Make some coffee...any amount you think you will drink...
I like to use Cafe Mocha coffee since it doesn't need extra sweetening...otherwise, you might want to add a little sugar.
You can let it sit in the fridge/freezer to get cold for later..I put mine in the freezer and leave it there until it begins to get frozen...the surface is just hardening, but everything in the cup is still liquid.
Get a large cup, put some ice, and a little milk and pour your cold coffee in
Give a little stir and viola!

How do you make yours?
