Recipe: Infused Cold Brew Ice Cubes

Are you not quite ready to give up your iced coffee drinks this fall? Keep the summer feels going with a CBD infused cold brew!  Cool down (and chill out) with a CBD infused cold brew! 

Ingredients

  • Ice tray
  • Homemade or store-bought cold brew concentrate
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2–3 teaspoons of your favorite Social CBD Drops

Preparation

  1. Add the Drops to filtered water
  2. Fill each cube about 1/3 of the way with your infused water
  3. Top off with Cold Brew concentrate
  4. Freeze for 3-4 hours 

Once the ice cubes are fully frozen they’re ready to add to your favorite coffee drink concoction. Since cold brew concentrates can be pretty strong, we recommend starting with a 1:1 ratio with water, milk, or your favorite non-dairy substitute.

Additional Recipe: Homemade Cold Brew

Ingredients

  • 8 oz whole light roast coffee beans 
  • 8 cups filtered water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Fine mesh strainer

Preparation

  1. Coarsely grind coffee (think the texture of raw sugar!) 
  2. Combine ground coffee and filtered water into a large jar or pitcher and stir gently.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Note: the longer the mixture steeps, the more potent the concentrate will be. 
  4. Strain the coffee with a cheesecloth over a fine-mesh strainer and then transfer it to a resealable container. Be careful not to squeeze or press the grounds as it will make the extract bitter.

Drink and enjoy! This recipe creates a strong coffee concentrate that you can mix with water to taste, but 1:1 is a good starting point.
