There’s nothing better in the fall than a hot cup of coffee– but I actually prefer a cold brew when the weather cools down. Cold brew is great – the coffee is more concentrated and the caffeine seems to absorb in my blood system faster. It’s basically how I get going in the morning. Now, add some liquor to a cold brew and you’ve got my heart. I’m going to start with an easy way to make cold brew coffee overnight and then move on to some awesome cocktails you can make with your coffee.

5 Cold Brew Coffee Cocktails:

Cold Brew Coffee How-To

Ingredients:

  • 7 tbsp ground coffee (dark roast always works better here)
  • a French press
  • 2 cups water

Directions: Combine ground of coffee and water and let sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning, press your coffee and you will have an awesome cold brew! If you don’t have a French press, brew some coffee in the morning and stick in your fridge around lunchtime, and it should be ready to mix with your cocktail of choice.

The Dark Bourbon

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz cold brew coffee
