Check out this recipe, created by Ryan Willbur of LA’s Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea. Plus, I love the tips provided on how to make and store enough iced coffee for up to two weeks – that makes my morning routine about 100x more simplified. I may have just discovered my new morning jolt.
1 part whole milk
2 parts iced coffee concentrate*
1 part filtered water
1 dash curacao
Shake ingredients with ice, strain, and serve up in a martini glass. Garnish with a light sprinkle of fine coffee grounds.
*For the iced coffee concentrate:
Use a medium or light roasted coffee. Grind one pound of coffee coarse. In a larger pitcher, combine coffee and nine cups of cold water. Allow coffee to soak and brew for 18-24 hours. Filter the concentrate by pouring the mixture through cheesecloth into another vessel. Refrigerate. Concentrate can be stored and used for up to two weeks.
I encourage you to revert back to Routson’s blog post for more Iced Coffee creations, which call for a slew of Kahlua’s flavored products, Mocha and Hazelnut.
Enjoy turning your Good Morning into a Great Morning.
