The pictures tell this story, and it's a simple one:
- Pour a little bit of a flavored syrup into a glass. I'm using raspberry here, as it is the only one I can find locally that is not artificially flavored. I'm going to have to cast around for other shops I can buy the good stuff at.
- Pour in some coffee. It really is that simple.
- Pour in some milk, or if you're feeling naughty, half-and-half.
- Pop in some ice, stir, and enjoy!
The ratios are up to you, and take some experimentation. I just pour mine based upon where they level off at inside the glass, but I like living on the edge like that.
Cold-brewed coffee is actually a very simple thing to do. So simple, in fact, that I took way too many photos of the process. Nonetheless, I hope this Instructable is of use to someone, maybe someone else out there who's still trying to figure out why these self-same drinks cost so much when someone else makes them for us.
The one thing I'd do different for next time is to increase the amount of coffee from 3/4 cup of beans to a whole cup, per eight cups of water. I've always liked strong coffee, though.
I'll likely update this Instructable in time, as this is my first one, and no doubt there will be many improvements I can make. Thank you, and happy cold brewing!
