Recipe By: The Pioneer Woman

Perfect is a big word and comes with some pretty high standards. I can tell you… this coffee is about as close as it gets.

There are a lot of ways to make iced coffee. The method you choose and the steps you take will determine how the end product turns out. The folks at The Pioneer Woman have this process down to a science. The result is the smoothest, richest, creamiest cup of iced coffee to ever touch your lips.

The main key to making the Perfect Iced Coffee is the cold brew base. Cold brew coffee is actually super easy to make (learn how here) and it is stronger, smoother, and less bitter than hot brewed coffee. It does need to steep for about 24 hours so you will have to plan ahead. However, once you try it you will probably like it so much that you may just decide to have some on hand at all times.

Another little trick for a better coffee is to use coffee ice cubes. This will keep your coffee from getting watered down if you get distracted and end up letting it sit for too long. We have some great flavored ice cube recipes here.

We recommend using half-and-half in this recipe instead of regular milk, as it makes the end result extra smooth and creamy. It is however optional, and regular milk will work just fine.

As an alternative, you can also use sweetened condensed milk which is super delicious. Either way, we know you are going to love this Perfect Iced Coffee.
