Coffee !

I've been all over these forums & can't find the 'right forum', so mybe i'll find an answer on the front porch ?  Smiley Very Happy

I have 2 cans of 'cheapie' coffee ; tried mixing them so they would be more flavorful, but not-so-much did it work. Might buy a more spendy brand & mix them, but in meantime, anyone have any ideas on how to make these cheap brands taste better ?

Thanks !

These delightful views of Green Lake, Wisconsin is from the deck of the home that was built on the lot where our family cottage was.  My family owned the the old cottage from 1941 

until 1979. The last photo was how our place looked around the time it was sold.

Perfect Peach Iced Tea Will Be Great For The 4th Holiday 

Though I used to despise peaches as a child, I’m quite fond of them now. All it took was one good peach milkshake and my mind was changed. Ice cream has undeniable power over me! 

This peach iced really is perfect.

I hate to compare it to Sonic’s, because that would mean I would have to admit I go there. But since the cat is out of the bag, I am fond of Sonic’s unsweetened iced tea with peach and was happy to recreate something so similar at home that was much fresher and made with ingredients I know and trust.

Given the hot weather how about some Ice Tea for the afternoon!

 

Yield: Yields about 2 quarts.

I like to use orange pekoe tea and spring, filtered, or distilled water for this straightforward brew. If you like your iced tea southern style and quite sweet, add 1-1/2-cups granulated sugar.

Check out more summer drinks, including fun and classic cocktail recipes and icy drinks and shakes, on the Drinks & Entertaining page.

 
Ingredients
  • 2-1/4 cups water
  • 6 regular-size tea bags (about 1/2-ounce total), or 2 family-size tea bags
  • 6 cups cold water
  • Granulated sugar for garnish
  • Lemon wedges for garnish
  • Mint sprigs for garnish
Preparation
  • In a small saucepan, bring the 2-1/4 cups water to a gentle boil. Add the tea bags, remove the saucepan from the heat, and cover. Steep for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the tea bags without squeezing them (which would add bitterness) and pour the steeped tea into a 2-1/2-quart heatproof container (like a large Pyrex liquid measure). Add the 6 cups cold water and mix. Let cool at room temperature and then refrigerate until cold. Serve over ice, garnished with sugar, lemon wedges, and mint sprigs.
