Cold brew coffee cocktails are not a joke or gimmick. The best coffee shops and bars across the UK using TrueStart to boost their coffee cocktail meuns.

Though richer and darker than many typical cocktail ingredients, bartenders and drink crafters are finding creative, delicious ways to use it. Our goal with this article is to help you bring these fascinating drinks to your own home.

This is one of the joys of cold brew coffee: you can use it in so many ways. Fun sodas, satisfying mocktails, and - of course - refreshing iced coffee. But cold brew coffee cocktails elevate the versatility of cold brew to a new level, one which I am excited to share with you.

1 - Cold Brew Martini

This is one of the classiest coffee cocktails out there, stealing the visual show at any cocktail party. The rounded flavor of cold brew is lightly sweetened with sugar and polished with coffee liqueur. A light layer of foam adds a unique texture to the drink’s surface.

To make this one, mix the cold concentrate, simple syrup, vodka, and liqueur in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Then strain the drink into a martini glass and immediately top with three whole coffee beans.

2oz cold brew coffee
½ oz simple syrup
2oz vodka
1oz coffee liqueur
3 coffee beans as garnish

2 - Midnight hour run sour

This deep-noted sour class drink plays into cold brew coffee’s strengths. It’s deep, it’s dark, it has a vibrant tang, and it’s incredibly delicious.

To make this one, stir the ingredients together with ice and top with lemon zest as a garnish. I suggest using a coffee with a darker realm of flavor, such as a chocolatey Central American or a fruity, yet dark, Ethiopian.

2oz cold brew coffee
2oz dark rum
½ oz brown sugar simple syrup
Juice of ½ lemon
Lemon zest as garnish

3 - Cold Brew Hot Toddy

This caffeinated spin on the Wintertime favorite, the Hot Toddy, is rich, warm, and satisfying on a cool evening. This particular drink is often saved for when you’re feeling under the weather (it’s a great one for a sore throat), but there’s no reason to stop yourself from enjoying it when your health is up.

To make this one, combine all the ingredients and stir well to fully melt and incorporate the honey.

1oz cold brew coffee
1oz bourbon whiskey
6oz hot water
1 tablespoon honey
Juice of ½ lemon

4 - Cold Brew Negroni

Set the gin aside (or leave it in, if you wish) and pull out the cold brew concentrate for this spinoff negroni recipe. The orange and cherry sweetness and cinnamon notes of campari pair very well with cold brew coffee.

This one can be crafted by stirring the ingredients together and topping the drink with an orange peel garnish.

1.5oz cold brew coffee
1oz campari
1oz sweet vermouth
Orange peel garnish
