My first tutorial

And it's not even fabric related!

So with summer finally here in WI my husband and I have rekindled our addiction with these iced coffee drinks...they're super easy to make at home and you can save yourself tons of money. I don't know why but I can never make a hot latte or whatnot at home like they do at the coffee shops...but this I can make!

So we brew our coffee(12 cups) at night and then put it in a pitcher and put it in the fridge over night-don't think this is really how you're supposed to make iced coffee but it works for us.

Get a nice tall glass out, put 3 ice cubes in it, take your chocolate syrup and drizzle it over the ice-prob about 2 tablespoons worth-more or less to your liking.
Then add about an inch or so of half and half(I prefer soy)
Last pour the iced coffee over it and it will mix together. Sit back and enjoy! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.


  1. I MUST comment. Try a cold brew. You will love it 100 times more. Not bitter, more citrusy freshness. For a simple, at home recipe, just put ground coffee in a coffee filter, and tie it in a bundle with a rubber band. Put in pitcher with cold water overnight. It's amazing.

  2. thanks-I always thought it was a long difficult process to cold brew and never looked it up-we'll try it this weekend!
