Cold Brew Coffee Soda Float

Cold Brew Coffee Soda Float

The coffee is so cold that the ice cream doesn’t melt quickly, so you can scoop those coconut crusted ice cream spoon bites right from the top. Then push the ice cream down and swirl it all around.

Ingredients for Cold Brew Coffee Soda Float:

  • 1 cup coarsely ground coffee beans
  • 5 cups filtered water (this made a HUGE difference in how I liked iced coffee at home!)
  • regular (crushed, if you want it) ice or coffee ice cubes
  • 2 shots espresso (for one drink, more for other drinks)
  • 1/4 cup club soda (for one drink, more for other drinks)
  • 1/4 cup vanilla ice cream (for one drink, more for other drinks)
  • melted chocolate for drizzling, if desired
  • toasted coconut for topping, if desired

Ingredients for Coffee Ice Cubes:

  • 1 – 2 cups of brewed coffee
  • Milk, Cream, Almond Milk, or Coconut Milk

Directions for Cold Brew Coffee Soda Float:

  1. To make the cold brew, add the grounds to a large bowl or pitcher/container/jar. Add the water and stir to mix. Let this mixture sit overnight in the fridge. I have heard both ways: at room temperature and overnight. I prefer it from the fridge. (Also as a note, sometimes I made this in my french press too. I just don’t have a huge one.)
  2. The next morning, strain the coffee through a few layers of cheesecloth or a coffee filter. It’s key to reduce the granules.
  3. Fill a glass or mug with crushed ice or coffee ice cubes (or omg, mind blown – crushed coffee ice cubes?) and pour your cold brew overtop, a little more than halfway. Add in the two shots of espresso. Add in the club soda and stir. Taste and see if it’s bubbly enough for you – if not, add a touch more!
  4. Scoop the ice cream on top and slightly push it down into the cold brew. At this point, you can drink it like this or swirl the ice cream until it melts. Or you can drizzle on a little chocolate and sprinkle some coconut!

Directions for Coffee Ice Cubes:

  1. Make a cup or two of coffee and allow it to cool slightly.
  2. Stir in some milk (anything from cream to almond or coconut milk).
  3. Pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze overnight.
  4. You can obviously make a ton of these and store them for on demand use!
