Making Iced Coffee at Home

Ingredients for making Instant Iced Coffee:

  • Instant Coffee: You may use any favorite brand of coffee. Nescafe instant coffee powder is amazing! Lately, I am loving Davidoff coffee and I have used it for this recipe. The smooth plain coffee granule is perfect! You may experiment with flavored coffee too. But I’d suggest not to get too excited with flavored coffee, maybe vanilla or chocolate flavored one might be okay.
  • Sugar: I have used regular granulated sugar. You may use powdered sugar, brown sugar, or any sweetener of your choice.
  • Warm Water: You need two to three tablespoons of warm water so as to mix the coffee and sugar well. I have noticed that using warm water will help in dissolving the sugar properly, especially if you are using granulated sugar.
  • Chilled Water: Well, this is Iced coffee. So you need cold water.
  • Milk: I used chilled milk for this recipe. You may use it straight out of the packet or boil and chill to be used later for the recipe. You may use full fat, or half and half milk. For a vegan version, use almond milk or soy milk.
  • Ice: I add at least 4-5 ice cubes per 200 ml of iced coffee. Be careful about the number of ice cubes you add. It may water down the drink and become bland once the ice melts.
