Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee

i'm a green tea in the morning kind of girl.
i use to be a 'drink an entire pot of coffee by yourself in the morning'  kind of girl, but i've changed my ways.

go team green tea!

now don't get me wrong i still like coffee, and now that we have warm temperatures outside, i'm absolutely an iced coffee kind of girl.
just not the kind of girl that puts ice cubes in hot coffee, gross, like dirty water gross.  

go team iced coffee!

Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee

1/3 cup ground coffee (medium-coarse grind is best)
1 1/2 cups water
milk (optional)
sweetener (optional)

In a jar stir together coffee and water.  Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight or 12 hours.
Strain twice through a coffee filter, a fine-mesh sieve or sieve lined with cheesecloth.  In a tall glass filled with ice, mix equal parts coffee concentrate and water, or to taste.  If desired add milk or sweetener.

Yields: 2
