It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Recipe & Book Recommendation. As I was making some fresh cold brewed coffee, it occured to me this is the perfect place to share my overnight recipe and offer up some reading ideas to enjoy on your deck!
I found this recipe in a magazine years ago and it’s so easy to make. Enjoy!
Overnight Cold Brewed Coffee
a fine sieve*
How to Prepare:
Add 1/3 cup of coffee to 1 1/2 cups of water in a mason jar. Seal with lid and allow to steep overnight. Approx. 12 hours.
When ready to prepare cold brew, strain liquid removing grounds. Place aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
Fill a tall glass with ice. Next add equal parts cold brew coffee and cold water. This should be to taste. I tend to like mine stronger since I add creamer. Add creamer, sugar etc to taste. I like to use a little flavored creamer. Add a reusable straw and enjoy! Makes approx. 2 servings.
