Iced Coffee


Here’s my version of Iced Coffee.  Perfect on a hot, sunny day.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!


  • 4C Brewed Coffee, brewed to double strength
  • 2/3C Light Cream (aka Coffee Cream)
  • 1/3C Simple Syrup


  • Brew coffee to double strength and set aside.
  • Hand-Blend cream and simple syrup, using a spatula or wooden spoon.
  • Add hot coffee to the cream mixture, stirring the entire time.
  • Serve in heat-proof glasses over ice.
  • You can store in the refrigerator what you don’t pour over ice.

What is Simple Syrup?  It is a liquid sweetener ideally suited for iced tea, iced coffee, and lemonade, to name a few.  I always have a small bottle of simple syrup on hand because it is so easy to blend into cold beverages, where granulated sugar, I find, is not easily blended.  (I save and reuse small glass necked-bottles.)  Store your simple syrup in an airtight container or small bottle in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks.

Here’s the easy mix:



  • 1 Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Cup Water

(Always equal parts sugar to water)


This happens quickly.

  • In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved.
  • Immediately remove from heat.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Store tightly sealed in the refrigerator.

Try it, and let us know what you think!
