Coffee in itself is a very versatile drink, but with a cold brew, you can do so much more! A cold brew offers that coffee sweetness that we can’t get from brewing hot coffee. A cold brew coffee brings out that less acidic, milder yet sweeter cup. For that reason, it goes really well with other nice recipes compared to using a hot brewed coffee.
Cold Drip Martini
Coffee and alcohol in the same cup? That’s magic to many people’s ears. This drink has a real sweetened coffee kick to an already amazing drink. Compared to the Pharisaeer, this coffee martini is more delicate making it a great drink for a romantic dinner. All you need are the following:
- 45 ml of vodka
- 30 ml of cold drip coffee
- 15 ml of butterscotch schnapps
- 15 ml of coffee liqueur
Coffee Drip Pops
Although you can make coffee popsicles using hot brewed coffee, there is a big difference in the taste. The sourness of hot brewed coffee becomes really defined. Just add condensed milk to your cold brew and pop them in a popsicle mold.
This indulgence is a real treat. And the great thing here is that you can eyeball it. Just drop a scoop of ice cream, a few or more banana slices and your cold brew coffee in your blender and slush away! You can add in some berries and chocolate syrup or a dollop of whipped cream to get an entirely different yet coffee-mazing drink.
Cold brew coffee is better used for cold drinks compared to hot brewed coffee because the taste it offers it beyond money can buy. Plus, you get to do them all at home!
