Cold Brew Coffee and Bourbon together? Yes, please! This cold brew cocktail is very refreshing!
With summer coming, we need a way to get our caffeine fix with out having a hot cup of coffee. So, we have been drinking a lot of cold brew coffee. We make cold brew coffee almost every morning, it is a delicious way to make some great tasting coffee using only cold water, fresh coffee beans and time.

The coffee is smoother and not as bitter. We think the flavors of the cold brew coffee more nuanced and delicate. The cold process reduces the acid and keeps some of the volatile oils that normally dissipate in the hot process.
Cold Brew Cocktail
So when we had the idea of making a coffee based cocktail, we knew that we wanted to use cold brew in the cocktail. Add in the arrival of our new hand cranked burr coffee mill we were given by UncommonGoods, and we just had to make the Cold Brew Bourbon Cocktail.
Coffee based cocktails have been gaining popularity, as the many varieties of coffee gives mixologists new bold flavors to play with. We started out with a medium roast breakfast blend coffee that we used to make a strong batch of cold brew. We made our cold brew by coarsely grinding our whole beans and adding that to a batch of cold water and letting it steep overnight.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Cold Brew Cocktail?
- Maple Syrup
- Triple Sec
- Cold Brew Coffee
- Heavy Cream
Once we had the cold brew ready, we mixed in nice smooth bourbon, which is a classic pairing. The sweet vanilla and caramel notes of the bourbon complimented the dark flavors of the coffee. This is a classic way of making a warm adult coffee that we love in the winter. Since we were going with a cold cocktail for the summer, we wanted to mix it up and come up with something different.
A splash of dark maple syrup adds a sweet note. This added a flavor that really works with the coffee and bourbon in this cold brew cocktail. Adding a bit of orange liqueur brightened the cocktail and added a nice orange perfume. It really mixes nice with the aroma of the coffee.
Topping the drink with some heavy cream gives the drink a rich creaminess and a wonderful silky mouth feel. Plus, gives the cocktail a classic latte look. If you want a warm coffee cocktail, may we recommend our Toasted Cream Irish Coffee!
