Frosty Coffee

 Frosty Coffee

Every morning means getting my coffee on- but in the summer, it's iced coffee. A great way to make homemade iced coffee that isn't bitter is to brew your coffee cold in a french press. The flavor is smooth and delicious, and tastes as good as the coffee you'll pay $3 for at a coffee shop.

To make the iced coffee, put your coffee grounds in your french press, about 2 tblsp per cup of coffee. Pour this same number of cups in of water. Place the top of the french press over the pot, but DON'T PUSH IT DOWN. Then, just stick it in the fridge overnight, press it in the morning, and voila! Delicious, economical iced coffee.

Don't know what to do with your used up grounds? If you have acidic loving plants, such as hydrangeas or blueberries, fill the pot again with water and use it to water these plants. Slosh it around as you pour to get all the grounds!
