Sun Tea and Iced Coffee

Last weekend was a clear, blue day. A perfect day to brew sun tea (a milder version of iced tea). Just pour clean water in a clean bottle, top with lots of tea leaves and allow it to "brew" under the sun. Half a day later, your patience will be rewarded with delicious sun tea.

You can also make iced coffee in a similar fashion, but you don't want to leave it out in the sun; the point with iced coffee being, it should be cold. When making iced coffee, pour the grinds in before pouring in the water. If you do it right, a Guiness-like foam will arise. (Otherwise, in my experience, the grinds refuse to sink.)

Dump spoonfuls of freshly ground coffee grinds in a clean bottle, pour in clean water and allow the bottle to sit in your fridge over night. Tomorrow morning, say good morning to an ice-cold glass of tart, sharp coffee.
