Recipe of The Week: Iced Coffee

No kidding, I've had servers tell me that they either did not have 'iced' coffee or that they did not have ingredients for 'iced coffee'. The first place I saw iced coffee on the menu was at the M.G.M. Studios Commissary around 1980 - all the Hollywood studios have it, workers are quite used to ordering it.

So, as a public service, here is how to make iced coffee in its best form:

• • Fill a large glass completely with ice cubes or chips.
• • Slowly pour hot coffee from the pot into the glass until the partly-melted ice is floating.
• • Add more ice, to top of glass.
• • Sweeten to taste.

NOTE: The business of putting a dinner knife inside the glass while pouring is an old wives tale: Modern commercial or at-home glassware make this ridiculously unnecessary.
