Cold Brew Coffee Mule

Cold Brew Coffee Mule

Edd Siu

If you like Moscow Mule cocktails or just ginger beer in general, coffee and ginger make a surprisingly good pair.

This Cold Brew Coffee Mule is an incredibly refreshing and reinvigorating drink, suitable for poolside, beach, or picnic vibes.

Coffee, ginger, citrus, and mint make for an amusing symphony of flavors and aromas.

About this recipe

In this non-alcoholic coffee cocktail recipe, we substitute the vodka for cold brew concentrate. If you want to get nerdy, I recommend a cold brew made with Kenyan or Ethiopian beans. This way, the acidic notes of these coffees will make a perfect pair.

But overall, you can use any cold brew concentrate.

Sidenote: If you don't know how to make cold brew concentrate and would like to learn, check out this lesson on making cold brew from the Home Barista class.

You have to use concentrate so that the coffee flavor stands head to head (in a friendly way) with the strong notes of ginger.
