I know I’ve already done a strawberry-flavored cold brew, but this one is a little different. And, it’s been a little bit since I updated, so I owed y’all something.
This one is good with any brew, but I recommend a medium or light roast, if you want more of the vanilla and strawberry to shine.
For this recipe, I used the Arco Etrusco Blend from Caffe Umbria, mostly because I had it on-hand. But, if you’re looking at a brand like Caffe Umbria, the Bizzarri Blend would be delicious with this.
|1 cup ice|
|1-2 cups coarse ground coffee (the linked blend above, or your choice)|
|3-4 cups cold water|
|1 tsp Torani strawberry syrup|
|1 tsp Torani vanilla syrup|
|1 oz oat milk + 2 tbsp oat milk|
|3 tbsp whipping cream|
Remember my tips for easy cold brew:
- Coarse ground coffee
- Use cold water, rather than room temperature
- Let it brew in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours
- Keep it in an air-tight jar, for up to 2 weeks
Strawberry and Vanilla Recipe and Presentation
Once you’ve made your cold brew (coarse ground coffee and water in air-tight jar, set in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours, then strain), the next step is the topping and presentation.
- Fill your cup nearly half full with ice.
- In a separate container, mix together the 1 oz of oat milk, 1/2 tsp of vanilla syrup, and 1/2 tsp of strawberry syrup. Once well-incorporated, pour into your glass.
- In the previous, separate container, add in the whipping cream, remaining oat milk, and remaining syrups.
- With a handheld milk frother, whip the mixture on low and work your way up to medium until the mixture gets thick and a bit stiffer. The mixture should double or triple in volume.
- Pour your coffee over the ice and milk that’s already in your glass.
- Now, pour the cream topping over the coffee.
If you’re looking for something with even more pizzazz: add some frozen strawberries (or strawberries in your ice) to make it even more strawberry!
