Homemade Coffee Concoction
This creative take on the classic cocktail is easy to make and sure to delight. In place of the bourbon traditionally used to make an Old Fashioned, we’re substituting delicious homemade cold brew coffee. A 1912 Pike shout out to Starbucks coffee master Taylor Harbin for crafting the recipe for you to enjoy.
- 6 oz cold brew concentrate (recipe below)
- 2 T orange syrup (recipe below)
- 4 dashes Angostura® bitters
- Cherries (maraschino or brandied)
- Orange peel
How to Make Cold Brew Old Fashioned
Cover a large mason jar with cheesecloth.
Add coffee. We recommend Starbucks® Kenya with a coarse grind. Fill with pure, filtered water. Steep for 12 hours at room temperature.
Strain and discard cheesecloth with coffee grounds.
Make orange syrup. Add water, raw sugar and orange peels to saucepan.
Bring to a boil to dissolve sugar, then let cool.
Add orange syrup and Angostura® bitters to glass and stir
Add ice then top with cold brew concentrate.
Rim glass with orange peel.
Garnish with an orange twist and a cherry or two.
Serve and enjoy.
