Today I was home and I remembered reading on my cooking friends forum about a homemade iced coffee that sounded good to me. So, I went in search of the thread and found the link to the recipe (which was on recipezaar.com). Chris had said he wanted a cup of coffee, so I jumped up and said “I’ll make it!” knowing I wanted a full pot so I could try this drink out!
6-8 cups strong coffee (I used 8 cups)
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (I used about 3/4 of the can)
Combine brewed coffee and sweetened condensed milk in large pitcher. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice.
TIP given on recipezaar – use leftover coffee to make coffee icecubes with. Then you can chill your iced coffee without watering it down.
I decided to flavor my coffee a little bit….you know, plain coffee is good, but flavored coffee is better! 🙂 I put a little bit of amaretto in my cup – and it was sooooo good! I would say you could buy the flavored syrups also to flavor it up some, but if you do, you probably would want to adjust the amount of sweetened condensed milk to allow for the sweetness of the syrup you are going to use.
