Iced coffee…it’s a glorious drink! I didn’t discover coffee until AFTER I gave birth to three of my four daughters. I don’t know what rock I was living under but I never knew coffee could be delicious. I’ve found out that cold coffee, especially ice cold coffee is even more delicious than I could have imagined!

I’m not a huge fan of hot coffee though so most of the coffee I drink is either iced or room temp. Call me weird, that’s ok, but I like what I like.

After being so tired of the three older daughters always using up the regular coffee creamer in their milk I decided to just stop buying it and try my taste buds with half and half. I have to say I am SOOOOO glad I did! It is even better than any flavored creamer I’ve bought! Granted I add in a few things but even so it’s tasty!

Everyone is different when it comes to taste but I like to have a ratio of coffee:half and half 3:5….yes maybe a little heavy on the half and half but what can I say I’m living it up ;)! First, pour your coffee into your glass.

Then add in your sugar. I add 1.5 teaspoons to mine and it’s almost too sweet for me.

Don’t forget your vanilla. I usually eye ball this to be just a tiny bit but if you’re nervous you’ll pour too much use a measuring spoon. I don’t recommend putting in more than 1/2 teaspoon.
