Ultimate Iced Coffee

Sommer Collier is a wife and mother who is always looking for ways to make life just a little more interesting. She developed a love for cooking by standing on a wooden chair, watching her mother and grandmother cook as a little girl. Then later her eyes were opened to the vast possibilities in the culinary world through a series of international mission trips and travel experiences as a teenager. After breathing in the spicy air in the open markets of Africa, India and China, she knew her life would never be the same.

She started after teaching cooking classes for several years with the intention of helping the average spatula owner to feel a bit more comfortable in their kitchen. Nowadays she shares easy-to-make recipes, with a touch of moxie, as well as travel content with the hope of encouraging her readers to break out of their comfort zone and taste the world around them.

She lives in Asheville, North Carolina with her husband lovingly known as Lieutenant Dan (for no other reason than she met him right when the movie Forrest Gump came out), two scrappy kids with highly developed taste buds, and her golden retriever Kona Because (she believes) all animals should be named after places youd like to live.

She travels with her family as often as possible, always looking for new ways to experience this delicious life.

  1. For the coffee iced cubes: Stir 14 ounces dark coffee with Organic Blue Agave. Pour the mixture into an ice tray and freeze. (This recipe uses an ice tray for large cocktail cubes.)
  2. For each iced coffee: Place several coffee ice cubes in a tall glass. Pour in 1 teaspoon of Organic Blue Agave. Then pour slightly cooled coffee over the ice cubes, leaving room in the glass for cream. Stir.
  3. Then pour 1-2 tablespoons cream into the glass. Taste and add additional agave if desired.

NOTE: I usually make the coffee first, then go about with other kitchen duties to allow the coffee time to cool, before preparing my iced coffee. You can add warm or cold coffee to the glass, yet the iced coffee will stay cold longer if the coffee isn’t scalding-hot.
