Iced coffee.

I decided to immediately put my vanilla syrup to the test and made some iced coffee. There are many ways you can make iced coffee. I used to make coffee and let it cool off in the fridge over night but apparently there is a better way: cold brew your iced coffee. I tried it and I liked it. Here's how it's done:


I purposely didn't put any measurements with the ingredients, simply because I don't really like a strong coffee and I would probably use a significantly smaller amount of ground coffee than someone who does like his/her coffee strong. All of the other ingredients you can add to your own liking.
  • water
  • ground coffee
  • ice cubes
  • vanilla syrup
  • milk


  1. Combine the water and ground coffee in a pitcher. Let it sit over night (or for 8 hours) in the fridge.
  2. Strain the coffee out of the mixture. I used a regular coffee filter but you can use a cheesecloth if you prefer. If you use a coffee filter, it might be necessary to repeat this process for a couple of times. Not all the coffee might be strained out. (I don't know if that's the case with a cheesecloth)
  3. So this is basically your iced coffee. Now, you can add all the flavours you want. I usually fill a glass with ice cubes, add the iced coffee and some milk (maybe a little sugar/sugar syrup). For this one I added the vanilla syrup and I quite liked it! If you want to add any spices you can add them in the first step.
