Ratio coffee to water
Nobody can tell you how much coffee you will need per one cup of water. Tastes differ and it depends on your personal preference. I recommend this ratio: 1 teaspoon of instant coffee per 1 cup of water. However, you might need to add 1 ½ to 2 ½ teaspoon.
How to make Starbucks iced coffee
If you are addicted to iced coffee from Starbucks, you can use this recipe. It will taste just like their coffee. But make sure to use vanilla syrup. If you have Starbucks vanilla sugar-free syrup, use it to get the best results.
Don’t like when coffee is getting watered down because of ice cubes? Freeze extra coffee in an ice tray and use it later!
How to store iced coffee
Store the coffee without ice cubes for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. When making ahead of time, use ice cubes made with coffee. Simply freeze extra coffee in an ice tray and use later. It guarantees great taste!
