By Gregory Tumlin

For some coffee aficionados, cold coffee is the ultimate drinking Nirvana.  It is the liquid mantra that carries you through the day, that drives your ideas; that boiled potion that influences your mood and in some cases, your creativity. The importance coffee has over society has reached far beyond the fields of an everyday after-lunch habit and has journeyed well into the realm of a carefully praised and almost religious ritual.

So, in the spirit of enhancing the benefits and sense of belonging to a special crowd of coffee lovers, we have put together this list of recipes that will guarantee you a brain freeze of pure flavor.

1.) Super quick Coffee with Milk


 What you’ll need

  • Your favorite brand of coffee
  • A carton of milk (whole, skimmed, lactose-free)
  • Regular ice cube trays
  • Sugar or substitute

How you’ll do it

This one is a no-brainer but delivers the most basic yet enjoyable cold coffee drink you can fix at home.  Just pour your regular coffee on a regular ice cube tray.  Once the coffee is frozen, pop out the cubes and put them inside a tall glass while adding your favorite milk and your choice of sugar or substitutes. Stir it up and viola!

2.) Condensed Milk Mocha Cold Coffee


What you’ll need

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 cups of recently-brewed coffee
  • ½ teaspoon of cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • A home blender

How you’ll do it

Mocha Coffee became an instant classic when someone decided to mix cocoa powder and ground coffee together. When someone added cold into this powerful blend, the result is this fresh and delicious pleasure.  Just take a regular jug–manual or with a blender machine–and stir all the ingredients until you reach a uniform cream.  For even better results, try a milk frother and be ready to enjoy this chilly version of your favorite drink.

3.) Frozen Mocca


What you’ll need

  • 5 cups of cold coffee
  • 2 cups of skim milk
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 3 teaspoons of melted chocolate
  • A home blender
  • 2 full ice cube trays
  • Whipped cream for garnish
  • Chocolate syrup for garnish

How you’ll do it

A different version of the Mocca is the Frappé.  To begin, set your home blender on “ice crush” cycle and blend the first six ingredients until you reach a Frappé point. Pour the mixture into your cup or glass.  Add whipped cream and top it off with the chocolate syrup. Delish!

4.) Iced Coffee with Condensed Milk


What you’ll need

  • 1 teaspoon of ground coffee
  • ¾ cup of water
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • A coffee filter
  • Cubed or crushed ice

How you’ll do it

In a small metal pot, pour the water and the coffee and heat to boiling point. Let it sit for 2 to 3 minutes to cool off and then pass the coffee through a coffee filter to strain. Add condensed milk, shake it firmly and serve in a glass over ice. Easy, simple and refreshing.

5.) Tiramisu Milkshake


What you’ll need

  • 4 large scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream
  • ½ cup of Iced Mocca Coffee
  • 2 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese
  • 2 chocolate wafer cookies
  • Chocolate syrup
  • A home blender
  • Whipped cream for garnish
  • Cocoa powder for garnish

How you’ll do it

Combine the coffee, ice cream, mascarpone cheese and chocolate wafers in the jar and blend until you reach a smooth texture. Then simply pour into a tall glass or large mug, add the whipped cream and the cocoa powder to top it off, and decorate with more chocolate wafers for the Grand Finale.

6.) Spiked Thai Iced Coffee


What you need

  • 4 tablespoons of heavy cream (extra-fat whipped cream)
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar or alternate sweetener
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  • Crushed or cubed ice

How you’ll do it

Mix the cardamom spice with the ground coffee and brew as you would with your regular coffee. Pour it into a large jug or tall glass. Add the sugar and the almond extract and stir with a large spoon. Fill large glasses (12 oz. or more) full of your choice of ice (crushed or cubed), pour in the coffee, and then crown your Spiked Thai Iced Coffee with the heavy cream for an exotic coffee experience.

Finish it with your choice of whipped cream, chocolate syrup or sprinkles for a professional style.
