Weekend Drink: Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee


It’s that time of week again. In good conscience I can’t give you a drink with alcohol in it, it may be the weekend, but you all still have finals (even our of age readers). So I decided to introduce you to a personal favorite of mine, cold-brewed ice coffee. I know it’s practically Antarctica outside, but I heard it may get up into the 30’s this week and I’m from New England so this is totally appropriate. 

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 Pound Coarsely Ground Coffee Beans
  • 4 1/2 Cups Cold Water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Coffee Filters


  1. Put coffee grounds in a large container. Slowly pour water over the grounds.
  2. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and steep at room temperature for 18-24 hours (just enough time to study for a couple exams!)
  3. Line a strainer with several layers of cheesecloth and place atop a pitcher; strain coffee through the cheesecloth into the pitcher. Discard the grounds. To get a clearer brew, strain coffee again through coffee filters.
  4. Enjoy with 4-6 of your closest friends!

P.S. If you really have no work to do, I suggest adding this 1:1 with Bailey’s for a “Phat Iced Coffee” as we call it back home.
