- How To Make Fresh Mint Iced Coffee:
- Use a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth to strain your coffee concentrate, removing all the grinds.
- Store the cold coffee in a sealed jar in the fridge.
- Add coffee ice cubes and regular ice cubes (amount as desired) to a glass and pour about 2½ Tbsp mint syrup in.
- Add 8 oz coffee concentrate and stir in cream (or milk), as desired.
- Top off with some fresh mint leaves, and enjoy!
- How To Make Cold Brew:
- To make the cold brew coffee concentrate, combine the ground coffee and 2 cups water in a jar. Stir well.
- Let sit at room temperature overnight (or at least 8 hours).
- Coffee Ice Cubes:
- To make coffee ice cubes, make a cup or two of coffee and allow it to cool slightly. If you desire, stir in some milk (anything from cream to almond or coconut milk). Then pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze overnight.
- How To Make Mint Simple Syrup:
- To make the Mint Simple Syrup add the following to saucepan and heating over medium heat:
1. 1 Cup of Water
3. Mint Leaves
4. Vanilla Beans
- Whisk constantly until sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil.
- Let bubble for a minute, then remove from the heat and let cool completely.
- Put mint syrup in a bowl or jar, let it come to room temperature, then refrigerate overnight.
- In the morning before using, strain out the mint leaves and vanilla pod. (Refrigerate to save—will last for a week.)
