The mysterious photo was coffee being cold-brewed!
Some of the guesses were really funny. Tobacco??? What kind of lady do you think I am?
And Kombucha? I didn’t even know what that was. I do now!

Congratulations Rachel and Mary! Please email me your address (email@example.com) and I will send you some of my favorite coffee – Dunkin’ Donuts!!
First we assembled the ingredients.
That was easy!
Then we added 1/3 cup coffee and poured in 1 1/2 cups water. Stir it up!
Then cover and let sit for at least 12 hours. The first night I just let it sit. The second time I stirred it up a few extra times. Much better the second time!
I filled my cup with ice, poured in a bunch of french vanilla creamer, and added the coffee. Oh yummy goodness!!!!!
Read the comments from Smitten Kitchen’s post. There are some good tips in there! I especially loved this one:

They make this at the coffee shop I used to work at, and it is so wonderful. However, I hadn’t considered, until I read your post, that I DON’T need a bucket with a filter at the bottom, like they use. Brilliant deduction!
They make this drink called a buzzer, with Toddy (cold brewed coffee).
1/3 whole milk
1/3 half & half
three squirts chocolate syrup
two squirts vanilla syrup
Stir well. Proceed to explode.
I can’t wait to try it!!!
