Cold Brew Recipes For This Summer

By Ann Parker

Cold brew coffee is a big hit this summer. You can prepare this interesting and exciting beverage yourself, using one of these methods, immersion or ice drip method. Both are quite simple, but result in different acidity levels. In any case, resulting taste will positively surprise you as well as inspire you for creating great cold brew recipes for tasty summer drinks.

Immersion brewing method is really simple, but requires quite a lot of your time. It produces delicious coffee, sweet without bitter notes, well balanced and with low acidity levels. All you need is a large glass container, freshly ground coffee and water. And you will need some patience, of course. Usual ratio is one to eight, but this depends on your personal taste. Some people rather use one to six ratio instead, to make it all a little bit stronger.

You should simply combine water and coffee and let it sit for 15 to 20 hours in the container. After that, filter the mixture and place your favorite drink in a bottle. You can keep it in your refrigerator for several days. Resulting beverage is smooth, full of wonderful taste and aromatic, with adorable caramel aftertaste.

Ice drip method is simple as well, but it requires special equipment. The whole system consists of one water container with water drip regulator, one container for ground coffee and a jar under it. This system uses different ratio, usually one to ten, depending on your personal taste. You will need some patience here as well, because the whole process may take up to ten hours.

So, the water will drip on ground coffee very slowly, maybe one drip per second, for hours and hours. Resulting coffee has higher acidity, more distinctive aroma and a wide variety of flavors, with floral and fruity notes included. Takes some time to learn how to make it perfect and you have to invest in the equipment.

In any case, once you make your favorite cold beverage, you can use it for designing wonderful icy drinks you will positively enjoy. Here are some recipes you can use for the inspiration. Nutty milk pleasure is easy to make and doesn't require too much time. For this recipe you need 50 grams almonds, 2 tbs brown sugar and a pinch of cinnamon, as well as 200ml water, 200 ml cold brew coffee and 100ml vanilla ice cream.

If you don't have roasted almonds, roast them yourself. Simply put them into the pan and roast for a short time, to release the flavor. Then, ground the almonds and combine with water, strain the mixture, add other ingredients and put some ice cream on the top. You can also put one cinnamon stick on, as decoration.

Caramel touch will be a nice surprise. You will need two tbs sugar, 100 ml milk, 50 ml coffee liqueur and 300 ml cold brew. Caramelize sugar in the pan and pour milk over it. Let it cool and filter the mixture. Combine all the ingredients and serve in a large glass filled with ice. You can also add some ice cream on the top if you like.
