YUM — Iced Coffee

It's not often that I find myself making coffee that is just as good, if not better, than when a barista makes it for me at a coffee shop.

The iced vanilla latte from Java Ranch in Fredericksburg, Texas is heavenly. 

I'm ecstatic that I'm now able make an iced coffee at home that rivals some of my favorite coffee shops. Take note, Nancy Botwin.

I've been making Pioneer Woman's iced coffee recipe but proportionally smaller since our condo isn't exactly ranch-sized to store gallons of iced coffee. If you're the same way, you can make a little less than a full pitcher (2 quarts) with about 4 ounces of your favorite ground coffee. Follow the rest of her recipe and you'll be good to go with your cold cup of Joe. When it comes to iced coffee, I like it on the sweeter side (surprised?) so I add plenty of half and half and a splash of vanilla syrup, which is pure perfection in my book.
