Coffee ice cubes make my day brighter.
I go to Starbucks regularly, so I know how it feels to be disappointed when you get a cup filled with too much ice that it eventually waters down your drink. I feel cheated and robbed, and it is also why I never get ice when I dispense my own drinks at fast food places.
Three weeks ago, I experimented with some leftover coffee in the pot. It wasn’t enough to fill my mug, so I poured it all into an empty ice cube tray. I let it chill while I went to work.
I got home and decided to class up my after-work drink by using my favorite giant wine glass (is actually a brandy glass from IKEA), a bit of chai latte concentrate (super cheap at Target), and 2% milk. Add the ice cubes, and ooooh sweet mother of cows. It was delicious. And it didn’t get watered down.
