Ahhh. Iced coffee. A jolt of chilly goodness in a cup.

Way back when, I used to think iced coffee was basically regular ol’ brewed coffee, poured over ice. Which is a little … watery. But oh no. Iced coffee, when done right, is rich. Complex. Almost chocolatey.

It’s all about the cold brew. The best beans you can find, freshly ground, mixed with water, and steeped at room temperature for a few hours. Serious buzzy nectar right there. I mix mine with a bit of cream (oftentimes this dairy-free creamer) and I’m a happy coffee hound.

It’s nice, though, to shake things up now and then, am I right? Variety is the spice of life after all. So once you’ve had your fill of ever-so-delicious plain iced coffee, here are 10 ways to upgrade your iced coffee.
