5 Cold Brew Concoctions To Try

Get your chill on! There are other ways to enjoy bottles of cold brew coffee.

Cold brew or cold press coffee is different from iced coffee—it requires steeping coffee for 12 hours or more, resulting in a more mellow drink, well-loved for its low acidity and velvety texture.

We asked Jonathan Choi, the head barista of Magnum Opus Fine Coffees, for five alternative ways to enjoy your cold brew. From a milkshake to a cold brew rum, you can use cold brew coffee as the base for all your caffeine concoctions:


Cold Brew Cappuccino Recipe

  • 125ml Cold Brew Coffee
  • 50ml fresh milk
  • 2 pieces ice cubes

  • 1 Combine the coffee, milk, and ice in the tumbler and seal tightly. Wrap the tumbler with a towel to guard against spills.
  • 2 Shake well or until you can no longer hear the ice and it has dissolved. Pour out the shaken coffee into a cup and scoop out the foam and place on top of the coffee.

Cold Brew Mocha Recipe

  • 120ml Cold Brew Coffee
  • 50ml Milk
  • 45ml Chocolate Ganache
  • 2 pieces ice cubes

For the chocolate ganache:

  • 250g of your favourite chocolate
  • 250ml milk

  • 1 Make the ganache: Melt the chocolate over very low heat, mixing and folding it in to avoid burning. Slowly add milk 50ml at a time, combining the milk and the melted chocolate each time. Once all the milk has been added, cool and store. The ganache can keep for up to to five days when chilled. (When ready to use, place the container in a hot water bath before use.)
  • 2 Combine all four ingredients in a glass.
  • 3 Stir vigorously until the ganache mixes well into the milk and coffee.

  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 30ml lime juice (the juice of one lime)
  • 1 ounce rum (we used a jigger)
  • Lime wedge or peel for garnish
  • 2 pieces ice cubes

  • 1 Combine coffee, sugar, and lime juice, rum, and ice in the glass.
  • 2 Stir until the sugar dissolves.
