Easy 2 Minute Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is just as good, if not better, than hot coffee. But, lets face it, who wants to pay at least $4 for one at a coffee shop and who has time to brew a pot of coffee, especially when a craving hits.

So, for the busy, budget wise iced coffee craver I give you easy 2 minute iced coffee.

Step 1: 1. Making the Coffee

To make the coffee you will need:
- 1 cup of water
- 2 heaping tsp of instant coffee grounds

1. Boil water.
2. Put water in your favorite cup or mug, add coffee grounds, and stir.

Done with that!

Step 2: Cooling It Down

To cool things down you will need:

- 1 cup of ice cold milk or water
- 4or 5 ice cubes
- Sugar to taste

1. Add milk/water to coffee and stir.
2. Add ice cubes.
3. Add sugar to taste, I find 3 packets of Sweet N' Low work well.

Add whipped cream, chocolate syrup, cinnamon, etc for a better coffee shop look.

Enjoy your quick and delicious iced coffee, but be warned. The combination of ease and deliciousness makes it extremely addictive. You may find yourself chugging at least 2 of these.

    That is true. However, you must use hot water to make the instant coffee properly so using cold milk (or water) cools the drink down a lot quicker. The milk also helps to adjust the strength of the drink since twice as many granules of coffee are being used.

    If you use half hot water to dissolve the instant coffee, and then add ice water, it will cool it down. For those of us who don't usually add cream/sugar/other flavorings to our coffee, from here we would just add ice. It may be a little strong at first, but not for long. Melting ice waters it down. Adjust the instant coffee for taste. I also might add that I don't think of instant coffee as "grounds". Those are usually regular coffee. I think instant is either a powder or granules. I could be wrong though.

    I want to learn english for busines, interchange and after that, busines... anyway, I'll be programer, so, I will need to learn either way, wishing or not....

    I made this in the midle day, over the lunch, my dad's come out, and I could drink it all alone, in peace... and, I just realize this is a great coffe recipe, simple, but wich a "midas touch"(or somethin like it)... very good! may I write my recipes in the future, then I will tell to ya!
