      There’s just something about cold coffee that brings a smile to your lips if you’re a coffee-lover, isn’t it?

Cold coffee is also much easier on the stomach than your regular cup of Joe. Cold coffee is a popular drink all around the world, howev ... er, its origin can be traced to Algeria, somewhere around 1840. Since then, there has been no going back for this delicious drink! From pretty little café’s, college canteens, to movie theatres and shopping malls, cold coffee is one of the most popular drinks being served round the clock. But cold coffee can be made at home too, given that the only ingredients you need to make cold coffee are milk, coffee powder, sugar, and ice cubes. All of these ingredients are easy to come by, so if you’re craving cold coffee, all you need to do is head to your kitchen! You can take this coffee recipe up a notch by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the beverage. If you happen to be a health freak though, you can give the ice cream a pass. This in no way will diminish the appeal of the drink! If you want to make a healthier version of cold coffee, all you have to do is use honey instead of sugar, and skimmed or toned milk instead of your regular full-fat milk!
