A few years ago I gave y'all a great recipe for iced coffee.
For a while I made it and then my interest in iced coffee took a nosedive.
Recently my interest revived, but not to the point of all that planning ahead. I'll admit it. I just save the leftover black coffee from that morning and dose it up with a bit of milk and some sugar.
To my palate it is just about the same. Which may say more about my lack of discernment about iced coffee than anything.
What I could discern though was that the cold milk wasn't getting the coffee "iced" enough and adding ice cubes watered it down. Ugh.
I have begun using a little trick that I read about decades ago in a mystery novel, The Innocent Flower by Charlotte Armstrong. Some frozen cubes of coffee provided a neat twist in the mystery solution and also powerfully grabbed my imagination.
I began keeping a stash in the freezer and lo and behold! No more diluted iced coffee!
