Coffee Soda Is All You Need For The Hot Days

By Emma Chapman

If you like iced coffee, then you will probably love coffee soda. I know I do! With the weather staying hot lately, I’ve been back on the coffee soda train and I just felt like maybe it deserved its own post. 🙂 This is a super easy recipe—just two ingredients!

And for anyone who hasn’t tried a version of coffee soda yet, let me tell you what I like about it:

 - It’s cold. Obviously, this is a major plus in the summer months.   

- It’s refreshing. Sometimes I’m just in the mood for bubbles/sparkling water. I especially love it when my stomach feels a little off (like PMS or a hangover—just being honest!).

- It’s elevated coffee. I love coffee and drink it almost every day. So I love an option that makes my coffee routine extra special without necessarily adding extra calories or sugars.

The most important part of coffee soda is the coffee. Cold brew is best here. I am personally still loving my Kitchen Aid Cold Brew Coffee Maker, but another good option is a cold brew toddy. Cold brew is best here not only because it will be a better quality (since we’ll be serving it on ice) but you’ll want a very strong coffee since we’ll essentially be “watering it down” with the sparkling water/soda.      

Since we’re all friends here, though, I must confess that I do sometimes just save leftover hot coffee in a sealed container in my refrigerator to use in coffee soda, too. Waste not, want not. It’s still very good, but cold brew is better (usually stronger too).

Simply combine the cold brew coffee with club soda, sparkling water, or a ginger beer. I tend to use flavored sparkling waters and my favorite combinations lately are lime or cherry with coffee. I personally don’t love the coconut flavor but I could see it actually being quite good here. So if anyone tries that, let me know! xo. Emma
