How to Make Iced Coffee at Home

I don’t know about you, but I have been spending an ungodly amount of money on iced coffee these days.  With Arizona summer temperatures topping at 115 degrees, nothing sounds like more of a turn-off than hot coffee.  In my search to find economical and tasty ways to make iced coffee at home, I found an excellent method to get the caffeine kick without breaking the bank.

To begin, you will need to purchase ice cube trays. I bought mine in the clearance section at my local Fry’s for fifty cents. Fill the tray and freeze over night.

Next, add your ice cubes.  Be sure to leave about 1/2 inch to an inch of space at the top of your cup to add delicious creamers and sugars.


Last, add your cream and sugar. Stir and enjoy!
