How to make the perfect iced coffee

Iced coffee is a refreshing and delicious way to enjoy your favourite coffee. Making iced coffee is easy and can be done in just a few simple steps. Here’s how to make iced coffee:


• 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
• 1 cup of ice cubes
• Milk or sweetener (optional)


  1. Brew a fresh pot of coffee using your preferred brewing method. You can also use cold brew coffee if you prefer.
  2. Allow the coffee to cool to room temperature.
  3. Fill a glass with ice cubes.
  4. Pour the cooled coffee over the ice cubes.
  5. If you prefer, add milk or sweetener to taste. You can use regular milk, almond milk, soy milk, or any other milk alternative.
  6. Stir the iced coffee until everything is well combined.

Additional tips:

• If you want to make your iced coffee extra strong, you can brew the coffee using a higher coffee to water ratio. This will give your iced coffee a bolder flavour that can stand up to the ice.

• Use coffee ice cubes instead of regular ice cubes to prevent diluting your drink.

• Add a dollop of ice cream for a dash of decadence!

Delicious variations to try:

• Add coffee syrup. For a barista-style treat, stir a little flavoured coffee syrup into your drink.

• Stir in a drop of extract. A touch of pure vanilla or almond extract turns plain coffee into magnificent coffee.

• For the sweet tooth: replace the sugar with sweetened condensed milk for a Vietnamese style treat.

• Prefer iced latte? Turn your drink into an iced latte by adding frothed milk instead of plain milk. Shake cold milk in a mason jar to froth or use a handheld milk frother.

• Add a slice of citrus. A thin slice of lemon, lime, or orange can add an interesting twist to your favourite morning drink.

• Infuse it with herbs. Throw a few leaves of mint into the hot coffee before chilling it for a refreshing herbal flavour.

If you want to make your iced coffee more special, you can add some additional ingredients such as the ones listed above.

Enjoy your delicious iced-coffee!
