Once summer hits, you may find yourself adjusting from your hot coffee morning bevvy or afternoon pick-me-up to a more refreshing option. Iced coffee hits you up with that caffeine high, and cools you down at the same time. It’s truly the best of both worlds. What’s frustrating with iced coffee, is that as the ice melts, it waters down your drink making it way less desirable.

Solve that problem easily by making coffee ice cubes. Simply pour your brewed coffee into an ice cube tray, and freeze. You can even customize these by making some pre-mixed with milk and sweeteners, or even flavoring (think almond or vanilla extract). After they’re frozen, you can pour cold or hot coffee over the coffee cubes, and you’ve got a long lasting ice coffee that will only get better as it melts, instead of becoming a watered down blah that you leave behind in your car. Really short on time? Try dissolving instant coffee in a little bit of hot water, then add ice cold water before adding your coffee cubes.
