2/3 cups coarsely ground coffee
3 cups fresh, filtered water
milk, half and half or cream
Put ingredients in a quart jar and stir. Cover and allow to sit overnight.
Pour the coffee base through a sieve or strainer into a bowl, then strain back into jar for easy storage.
For each drink: Fill a tall glass halfway with ice. Pour in coffee until glass is about 3/4 full, and add milk/half and half/cream to taste.
How about a Vanilla Coffee Float?? Make the coffee as above. Instead of (or along with) ice, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This was my father’s favorite way of staying alert on road trips.
