Introduction

Most people think that in order to make iced coffee, you need fancy equipment or cold brew coffee. However, all you really need is a cup of hot water and a cup of ice! This guide will show you how to make iced coffee with instant coffee.

What You’ll Need

Here’s what you’ll need to make iced coffee with instant coffee:
-Coffee Mug
-Spoon
-Water
-Milk (optional)
-Sugar (optional)
-Ice cubes

Making the Coffee

-Start by making a regular cup of coffee using your preferred method.
-Once the coffee is brewed, pour it over ice cubes in a glass.
-Stir the coffee and enjoy immediately.

You can also make iced coffee with cold brew concentrate. To do this:
-Mix cold brew concentrate and water in a 1:1 ratio.
-Pour the mixture over ice cubes in a glass.
-Stir and enjoy immediately

Adding the Ice

To make iced coffee with instant coffee, start by adding 1 cup of cold water to a glass. Then, add 2 tablespoons of instant coffee and stir until the coffee dissolves. Next, fill the glass with ice cubes and add milk or sugar to taste. Finally, stir everything together and enjoy your iced coffee!

Sweetening the Coffee

One way to make sure your iced coffee is extra sweet and flavorful is by making a simple syrup. Combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then remove from heat and let cool completely. You can add flavored syrups, like vanilla or hazelnut, to the mixture for even more flavor. Simply add a few drops of the syrup to your cup of iced coffee along with the simple syrup.

Adding Milk or Cream

Let’s start by talking about adding milk or cream to your iced coffee. This is totally a personal preference, but we usually recommend starting with about 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of milk or cream for every 1 cup (240 ml) of coffee. You can add more or less, depending on how creamy or milky you want your iced coffee to be.

If you’re using milk, we recommend Whole Milk for the creamiest iced coffee, but 2% Milk or skim milk will work, too. If you’re using cream, we recommend using Half and Half, but Heavy Cream will also work. Keep in mind that the more fat in the milk or cream, the richer and creamier your iced coffee will be.

Once you’ve added the milk or cream to your coffee, give it a good stir until it’s combined.

Enjoying Your Iced Coffee

Assuming you have a cup of strong, hot coffee:
-Start by adding milk and sugar to your taste. You can also add flavorings like vanilla extract if desired.
-Mix well and pour over ice cubes in a tall glass.
-Stir and enjoy immediately!

Making Iced Coffee in Advance

There are two ways to make iced coffee in advance. The first is to make a large batch of coffee and then freeze it into ice cubes. This method works well if you have a lot of people to serve, or if you want to be able to make iced coffee quickly and easily.

To make iced coffee cubes, simply brew a pot of coffee using your favorite recipe. Once the coffee has finished brewing, pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze. When you’re ready to enjoy your iced coffee, simply place a few cubes in a glass and add cold milk or water.

  How To Store Ground Coffee?

The second way to make iced coffee in advance is to brew a pot of concentrate. To do this, use twice the amount of ground coffee that you would normally use for a pot of hot coffee. Once the concentrate has finished brewing, pour it into a container and store it in the fridge. When you’re ready for iced coffee, simply mix equal parts concentrate and cold milk or water.
