Pioneer Woman's Perfect Iced Coffee
So, Pioneer Woman (a.k.a. Ree Drummond) has a nifty way of making a crap ton of iced coffee with very little effort. She calls it Perfect Iced Coffee.
Here's my version:
1 French Press
4 c cold water
1/2 c (or more) ground coffee
Combine cold water and coffee in French Press. Swirl around with a spoon. Try not to throw it everywhere like I do. I have absolutely no grace when stirring. Press the plunger just until the coffee is under water. Stick in fridge for 8 to 12 hours. Strain through a filter or paper towel or cheese cloth and a strainer. Discard grounds. Pour some cold coffee in a cup. Add simple syrup and milk/cream/half & half to taste. ENJOY!
Mmmm, iced coffee without the bitterness, without the ice. It is a lovely thing.
I'm drinking this right now with Kahlua and Half & Half. Mmmmmmmmmm
