Roxygirl, I have been making this iced coffee a lot lately, and found I needed to edit my previous review. I ended up using 1 cup of water, and adding a 1/4 cup of the half-and-half, 4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, and 6 rather large-sized ice cubes. I just heated the water along with the coffee in the microwave, then let it cool in the fridge for about 35 minutes, then blended it all in the blender for about 35 seconds. I have enjoyed this iced coffee either topped with Cool Whip, or Reddi Wip. There's one more thing I did want to mention... I found this makes exactly 24 ounces of iced coffee. Thanks for sharing this recipe Roxygirl. It's definitely a keeper!!
I also made a few adjustments...like more instant coffee, and less water. I like to taste my coffee, but I think the brown sugar added a different touch. (a good one). The next time I'll try what Lilkari123 did w/the 1/2 and 1/2. Good idea!!..
This was awesome! It's gotten warm again in the Hinterland Autumn, and I was tired of iced tea, so this hit the spot...I've got three rambunctious little boys at home this afternoon, so I needed a little "pick me up" to keep up with them! Thanks Roxygirl! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
Yumm! Tastes like Starbucks, but way cheaper! I used 1 cup of water, and added some FF half and half in place of the 1/4 c. water. I bet it would be good with some choc. syrup, too, like an iced mocha! Thanks for a quick coffee drink that I don't need to drive to Starbucks for!
Quick and SO good! I added a touch of vanilla soy milk and used 2 teaspoons instant coffee. The brown sugar adds a wonderful flavor. I look forward to trying it with dark brown sugar, too. Thanks, Roxygirl, for sharing!
I felt it was too strong and a bit bitter but I guess that could be adjusted to taste with more sugar and cream. Easy to make!
