The Ultimate Instant Iced Coffee in just about 80 seconds
A video you must watch ‘cuz its quick, its no mess and its cheap – why pay Rs.200 or $4 for a iced coffee when you can do it at home for a fraction of the cost. I know many of you will probably turn your heads and say this is not how coffee is done, but trust me I’ve tried pouring coffee over ice as to the ice going in the coffee and its tastes exactly the same. Atleast with instant coffee. Once you start making your coffee at home, you are not going to like the ones served outside. I honestly don’t. There are times I need a coffee so bad, yet I wont settle for a Cafe coffee … I’ll get home n make my own.The trick (is pretty obvious) in this one is to get really good instant coffee. And Nescafe is surely not it. Actually I don’t like Nescafe at all, but you could try any brand you like. I’ve been using this coffee called BRU here in India, and trust me it would give nescafe a run for it money. And just so that you know what I’m talking about, I’m giving a free pack of this coffee, to one lucky winner who leaves a comment. Its for those out of India to know how good this Indian coffee is, and my Desi friends please just go buy a pack, its all over the place. I’ve always been a ground coffee girl, but there are times when you have so little time, and you need that caffeine in your system immediately. This coffee is for ideal for those times. If you are worried that hot coffee with melt the ice and dilute the taste, yes that would happen, but then again we’ll be making a strong shot of coffee so we actually do need to dilute it a little. And with all that extra ice going on top, your coffee is guaranteed to be chilled.
For those of you who love to get into the coffee making process with different coffee beans and ground coffee, in my next post I will talk about making iced coffee with the “cold brew” and thats equally easy too, just need to be prepared a little ahead of time.
please adjust to your taste
3/4th tablespoon strong instant coffee
1 heaped tablespoon caster/regular sugar
about 5-6 tablespoons of boiling water
lots of ice
full fat/skimmed milk
Take a tall glass, put the coffee and sugar. Pour in the boiling water and give it a good stir to make sure the sugar dissolves. Add a few ice cubes and stir again, cooling the mixture. Top with with the rest of the ice and pour some milk on top. Ta Da ! Its as simple as that.
