3 simple ways to spice up your cold coffee
Your morning (or afternoon) brew may be beautiful and simple with a reusable pod, but sometimes it needs a little boost.
- Try the spices you have in the cabinet!
Often, bakers use cinnamon as their main spice, but adding Cardamom and Ginger might make a recipe a bit more interesting and exotic. For those of you who like it spicy, you can add cayenne or chipotle to your morning. A new trend is pink peppercorns. A good alternative for someone who has tried everything, this berry is sweet and peppery.

- Dairy-free revolution
Even though soy milk is a popular beverage, there are other non-dairy options. Its taste is rich, almost nutty, and it has a nice body. There is no hint that it is dairy-free. You can use it just like regular milk. Coconut milk is silky, robust, and has a strong coconut flavor that is still subtle and not overpowering. It's delicious with a bit of cream or in a latte.
Those who want to go that step further can make homemade almond milk, which is incredibly easy and tastes delicious. Here is a recipe you should check out.
- Essences and Extract
Try using vanilla extract alone instead of creamers and syrups that are flavored with vanilla. No sugar is added, just flavor. Almond extract gives you the same sense of the amaretto flavor as a drink that doesn't contain alcohol. Additionally, a chocolatey coffee and mint extract might be a good pairing. Maybe you should check out the baking section.

Champion's tip for cold brew - Salt!
Salt enhances the flavor of foods and beverages, and, since cold brewing can sometimes muffle coffee's flavor, it is the perfect way to add some kick. Discussions differ as to how much, but some people swear by this method.
Must try Tips for Iced Coffee - Coffee Ice Cubes!
The night before, prepare the ice cube trays and freeze the mixture (the more fun-shaped, the better). These are great for cooling down coffee - they won't water it down as normal ice would. There is nothing better with coffee than more coffee, right?
- 200ml strong black coffee
- 50ml milk
- maple syrup, optional
- Make a 200ml cup of black coffee following pack instructions, then allow the coffee to go completely cold. Pour into a blender with the milk along with 2 or 3 handfuls of ice and maple syrup, if using, then blend until smooth and foamy.
- Pour into a chilled tall glass and serve.
