There's nothing like cold coffee on a hazy summer day. While we never tire of our cold brew, it's fun to mix it up every now and then. Here is a technique for coffee soda, because bubbles make pretty much everything better! This is an easy one to make at home, only requires a few ingredients, and just takes two minutes to whip up - easy as pie. Hey, speaking of pie, this soda would be a really nice post-lunch treat alongside a slice of cherry or blueberry. Ingredients:
Coffee, Sugar/Sweetener, Ice, Plain Seltzer, Milk (optional)
- Start with a cup of cold brew (DIY or to-go from HubBub) or double strength hot coffee that's come down to room temp. - Put a scoop of sugar, a little bit more than you would normally add to coffee (and, you know, none if you take it black) into about a 1/4 cup of the coffee. We opted for brown sugar for a richer flavor. Put the mixture on the stove for a couple minutes or zap it in the microwave for 15 seconds, just to dissolve the sugar. Alternately, add a glug of simple syrup if you keep that around. - Put a bunch of a ice in a glass. Pour the room temp/cold coffee, and then the warmed sugary coffee over the ice until the glass is about half full, then give it a good stir. - Fill the rest of the glass with seltzer, and add a splash of milk if that's your thing. For extra kicks, top with a scoop of ice cream for a coffee soda float!
Crank the AC and enjoy your coffee-ified fizzy pop!
