For the Old Folks 😉
I got desperate one night and experimented. Here’s what I came up with:
Get out your peculator!
6 cups of water
1 regaluar scoop/ tablesp of reg. or Colombian Folgers coffee
2 reg. scoops/ tablesp of Folgers French Vanilla coffee
You can make it stronger or weaker according to your taste.
Make the coffee
Fill a tall glass with ice-cubes or 3/4 full with crushed ice. Add a tablesp of brown sugar. Pour in the coffee. Mix well. Add milk to make that nice caramel color.
Hmmmm, it’s so good we quickly ran out of French Vanilla and are now working our way through Folgers Hazelnut!!
Sugar 1/2 cup
Fill each tea bell with layers of peppermint, thyme, peppermint until it’s full. Set in full teapot to seep for approx. 30 mins or however length of time needed to get the strength desired.
Pour 1/2 of tea brew into a jug with some ice. Mix in sugar, and chill.
