 How to make cold brew iced coffee
A few years ago my friend, Myrna shared with me a cup of cold brew coffee she made. It was perfect. She used the Pioneer Woman's recipe. The next morning and every morning after, I  almost always start my day with a cup of cold brew coffee. During cold season, I would skip the ice and warm up the coffee in the microwave.

Pour them inside a french press (or regular water pot if you don't have one), then put them inside the fridge

When you're ready for a coffee, get some ice, pour the coffee, mix in the half-and-half, sugar, and condensed milk. Stir well and enjoy!

Perfect Cold Brew Coffee
Yield: 8 serving of coffee
4 ounces or 113 grams of Ground Coffee (I got mine from Costco: Colombian Supremo)
2 litter Cold Water
Milk or Half & half - as prefer
Sweetened Condensed Milk (1 Tablespoons per serving)
2 teaspoons sugar or Simple Syrup (2 tablespoon per serving) - I used to use sugar but it doesn't dissolved well. 

1. In a large container, mix ground coffee with water.
2. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature 8 to 12 hours
3. Strain with tea strainer set over a french press or water pitcher. Pour coffee/water mixture through the strainer, allowing all liquid to run through. Discard/ compose the grounds.
4. Place the coffee liquid in the fridge and allow to cool. Use as needed.
5. To make iced coffee, add ice (as much as you prefer) to the glass. Fill glass 2/3 full with coffee liquid. Add healthy splash of half-and-half. Add sweetened condensed milk and sugar, stir well.
6. Taste and adjust half-and-half and/or sweetened condensed milk as needed.
