An easy DIY recipe for iced coffee.
  • Ground Coffee 16oz
  • Cold Water 2 gallons (8 qt)
  • Milk
  • Chocolate Syrup (optional)
  1. Start by mixing 8 quarts of cold water with 16 oz of ground coffee. Stir it all together so all the grounds are moist.
  2. Let this mixture sit for 8-24 hours.
  3. Place a paper towel or cheesecloth over a fine mesh strainer and place on top of a large pitcher.
  4. Begin pouring the coffee through the strainer. (I use a measuring cup to pour a few cups at a time.)
  5. You will have thick grounds of coffee left so use a spoon to push the liquid through.
  6. Once all the coffee has been strained, you should be left with two large pitchers of coffee.
  7. I fill a large cup about ¼-1/2 of the way up with coffee and fill the rest with milk. I add a squeeze of chocolate syrup and mix or shake well.
