Recipe of Peppermint sweet cream cold brew

All you need is a mason jar, some coffee filters, cold water, and of course, the star of the show: peppermint extract. 

Once you have your equipment and ingredients ready, making peppermint sweet cream cold brew is easy. Brew the coffee using your chosen method, then add the peppermint extract and Milk or cream to taste. 

Add some ice cubes or chilled water before serving for a refreshing summertime drink. Enjoy!

If you don’t have peppermint extract, you can use mint or even a drop or two of peppermint essential oil. Just be careful not to add too much, as essential oils can be very potent. 

If you don’t have coarse ground coffee, you can make your own by brewing coffee grounds in a French press with cold water. Just make sure to use twice as much coffee as you would for hot brewing.

You can use any sweetener you like. Try using flavored syrups, like vanilla or chocolate. 

This recipe is easy to follow, but it’s also a great way to use any leftover cold brew concentrate from last week’s batch. So, what are you waiting for? Brew up a batch of this refreshing drink today!

What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Peppermint Sweet Cream Cold Brew?

  • Coarse Ground Coffee is naturally sweeter and less acidic than regular coffee, so it’s the perfect base for this recipe. 
  • Water – Water is used while cold brewing as it allows coffee to percolate over a longer period in cold water. This technique gives coffee a sweeter, less bitter flavor.
  • Whole Milk – I have used whole milk. You can also use heavy cream if you want a more decadent drink. If you’re watching your calories, you can use skim Milk, but the drink won’t be as creamy.
  • Peppermint Extract – Peppermint extract is the best way to get that authentic peppermint flavor. 
  • Sweetener – I have used honey to sweeten my cold brew.

Steps To Make Peppermint Sweet Cream Cold Brew

1. Brew Your Cold Brew Coffee

Start by brewing your coffee. We recommend using two tablespoons of coarse-ground coffee for every 6 ounces of cold water.

Use a standard drip coffee maker, and brew your coffee in the “strong” setting. Steep the coffee overnight into the refrigerator. 

2. Peppermint Cold Brew Is Ready

The following day, strain the coffee and discard the grounds. Pour the coffee into a mason jar, and stir in the sweetener and peppermint extract. 

Finally, add milk or cream until you reach your desired consistency. Serve over ice, and enjoy! You can use a milk frother to incorporate them if you prefer. 

Store in the fridge for 10 minutes. Please give it a good shake or stir and enjoy!
