Iced Coffee 101: Liquid Happiness in a Glass

Ahhhh, friends. It's summertime. Almost. I live in Texas and it's hot. And school's almost out, and I keep my sunroof open all the time, so all that together equals summertime.

And summertime equals cool drinks.

Usually cool drinks equals gin and tonic or mojitos or daquiris.

Don't you love how I've gone all analytical and equation-oriented?

Yeah, me neither.

I digress. Today we're going non-alcoholic and I'm going to teach you nice folks how to make a pretty fabulous iced coffee.

Oh, I hear you thinking out there. Iced coffee? Pfft, Carrie, you pour the coffee that's leftover in the pot over some ice cubes. Done and done.

No. No, this is better. You gotta trust me. I know about exactly three things: Dramatic interp, the care and feeding of little boys, and how to make a dynamite iced coffee. (Technically, I might know more than that, but  those three are somewhere at the top of the list.)

So. Iced coffee. Also known as NECTAR OF THE GODS.

Okay. So here we go.
