If using a French press, push down the plunger to strain the grounds. If not using a French press or brewer, use cheesecloth or a coffee filter to strain your grounds. If using cheesecloth, strain 2-3 times to remove any murky residue.
Transfer cold-brewed coffee to large glass pitcher. Add ice directly to pitcher or in glasses (or both).
Add the condensed milk to taste and stir gently. 1-2 of condensed milk to every 8 ounce cup of coffee should suffice. Add slowly and taste test along the way.
Garnish each glass with a sprinkling of rose petals and serve.
If you’re limiting your sugar intake, you can also substitute organic non-homogenized whipping cream for the condensed milk as the maple water will add a light sweetness. And if you're vegan, you can substitute condensed coconut milk.
During the cold weather, this recipe can also be prepared hot. Just pour boiled maple water over medium-fine coffee grounds. Mix in condensed milk or frothed cream, add vanilla extract and garnish with rose petals.
