Nothing can go wrong with coffee when you mix cinnamon and chocolate. One of the simplest yet tastiest cold brew recipes, this one adds chocolate syrup with just a pinch of freshly ground cinnamon.

If you plan on having this first thing in the morning, we don’t recommend doing this. This is actually the caffeinated version of the very popular Long Island Iced Tea. It’s amazing, powerful and refreshing. Make cold brew by simmering coffee in water overnight, then you’ll need dark rum, vodka, tequila, gin, ginger ale, and lime juice. Serve it chilled for your house parties or house dates.

The coconut cream is the star of this recipe, aside from the coffee, which is made with vanilla, cinnamon, stevia, and Monk Fruit sweetener. It’s sweet and velvety, dairy-free and plant-based, so anyone can drink this drink. Vanilla and cinnamon are the best flavor enhancers that can happen to a glass of cold brew.
