How to make a salted caramel cold brew

The Ingredients. 

  • Caramel syrup- I used a homemade sugar free caramel syrup but you can use grocery store ones. Half of the syrup will be blended into the cold brew and the other half will be blended with the cream for the cold foam topping.
  • Cold brew- Skip the expensive bottled cold brew you can find at some grocery stores and just make your own at home.
  • Ice- This is NOT the coffee beverage you should enjoy warm.
  • Cold foam– A mix of heavy cream, caramel syrup, and salt.v 

The Instructions. 

Start by whisking together half the caramel syrup with the cold brew and pour it into a tall glass filled with ice.

Next, using a hand mixer, blend the remaining syrup with the heavy cream to make the cold foam.

Now, pour it over the cold brew, sprinkle with salt, and serve immediately.

Is salted caramel cream cold brew sweet? 

While this beverage is sweet, it is nowhere as sweet as a frappuccino or a hot coffee with added syrup in it. The naturally darker flavor of the cold brew balances it out well. 

For a less sweet version, you can halve the amount of caramel used. 

What is salted caramel cold foam made of?

Expert tips

    1. I love your recipes. I would like to suggest that you change fill glass with glass to fill with ice before someone makes a snarky comment.

    2. Number 1 of your instructions tells you to have, ” a glass full of glass” not a glass full of ice. I would love to try your recipe but I’m allergic to all low sugar low calorie syrups <3
