Prep Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 cup ice (or coffee frozen into cubes)
  • 1 cup coffee, at room temperature or chilled
  • 2 tablespoons cream, milk or half & half
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons granulated white sugar


  • To make the perfect iced coffee:
  • Brew your favourite coffee and let sit overnight in the fridge or allow it to cool to room temperature on the counter.
  • Fill your tall glass to the top with ice.
  • Pour over your brewed coffee, leaving 1-2 inches at the top for cream.
  • Pour in your favourite creamer. You can get lots of different flavors. Vanilla and hazelnut are delicious iced. Make sure you leave a bit a room for stirring in your sugar.
  • Add in your sugar or sweetener of choice. You could add your sugar in while coffee is hot to help it dissolve.
  • Stir and serve with your favourite straw.


You can add sugar to hot coffee so it can dissolve, or you can use a simple syrup as well.
