Coffee culture is really popular in Australia and this simple, fail-safe recipe is sure to pep you up for morning matches. You’ll need to prepare it the night before or at least five hours before, but it’s well worth it as real iced coffee tastes so much better than hot coffee that’s been left to go cold. It tastes just like shop-bought iced coffee, wonderfully mellow with no hint of bitterness.
Put the coffee in a large jug or jar and add 1 litre (1 3/4 pint) cold water. Stir with a fork until all the lumps are gone. Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 5 hours or overnight.
Put the sugar in a small pan with 200ml (1/3 pint) water and heat until the sugar dissolves. Pour into a container and cool.
Before the match starts, strain the coffee through a coffee filter or a sieve lined with double-thickness kitchen paper. Put in a large jug and stir in the sugar syrup.
Divide between 6 tall glasses and add the milk. Top with whipped cream or ice cream if liked.
