Cold-brew coffee is a conveniently low-tech method of coffee brewing which promises a less acidic, and smoother, cup of coffee. This is ideal for cold coffee-based drinks. A perfect pick-me-up for any summer’s day!
If you enjoy a slow slip I would recommend freezing some cold-brew coffee in an ice-cube tray. The coffee ice cubes will enhance your drink as they melt!
1/2 cup coarse ground coffee
1 1/2 cups filtered water
Mix the coffee and water together in a jug; cover and let stand in the fridge for a good 8 hours. Filter to remove the coffee grounds. I use a funnel lined with a paper coffee filter.
Store in the fridge for up to two weeks or freeze in an ice cube tray.
Simple Iced Mocha
30ml (2 tbsp) cold-brew coffee
1 tbsp Chocolate Sauce
3/4 cup milk (any sort)
Place all ingredients in a glass; stir. Enjoy!
Other ways to enjoy cold-brew coffee
Best cocktail ever! Simply equal parts vodka, Kahlua, cold-brew coffee, and sugar syrup served over ice.
I have tried this and I have to admit it’s not my thing but if you like tonic water give it a go!
Cold-brew coffee and Coca-Cola
Mix together coffee and cola (1:4 ratio) and serve over ice.
This combination is …. interesting. The coffee lends greater depth to the overly sweet Coca-Cola but overall it is lacking something; probably alcohol and maybe some lime. It’s quite the caffeine hit, so sensible caution is advised.
