Cold-brewed iced coffee

It’s hot, and I’m grumpy. Iced coffee helps. This is a remarkably easy way to make it at home, if you don’t feel like actually brewing coffee and then cooling it down. Cold-brewed coffee does have a slightly different taste than the regular stuff, but I liked it.

Grind 1/3 cup of coffee. Place it in some kind of receptacle (a French press would be ideal) and add 1 1/2 cups cold water. Cover and let rest at room temperature overnight (or for 12 hours). In the morning, strain it and dilute the coffee concentrate with milk and/or water (they suggest a 1:1 ratio of coffee to other liquid, but do what feels right to you). Serve over ice. These proportions yield enough for two cups of coffee.
