Nothing can go wrong with coffee when you mix cinnamon and chocolate. One of the simplest but most delicious cold brew recipes, this one adds chocolate syrup with just a pinch of freshly ground cinnamon. The best part about cold brews is that they are less acidic than regular hot coffee, so it is ideal even for people who aren’t dedicated coffee fans.

Long Island iced coffee cocktail

If you are planning to have this first thing in the morning, we’d advise you against it. This is basically the caffeinated version of the very popular Long Island Iced Tea. It’s amazing, potent, and refreshing. Make cold brew by stewing coffee in water overnight, then you’ll need dark rum, vodka, tequila, gin, ginger beer and lime juice. Serve it chilled for your house parties or house dates.

Cold brew coffee, creamy blended milk and decadent dark chocolate, what’s not to like? The twist in this recipe? Milk ice cubes.

The coconut cream is the star of this recipe, apart from the coffee, made with vanilla, cinnamon, stevia and monk fruit sweetener. It is sweet and velvety, dairy-free, and plant-based, so anyone can have this drink. Vanilla and cinnamon are the best flavour enhancers that can happen to a glass of cold brew. All in all, this cold brew recipe is a win-win!
