Recipes

You can enjoy your Slingshot Cold Brew in lots of different ways, starting with the basics or using these great recipes from the Slingshot Coffee Co. Pop-Up Bar:

 

READY-TO-DRINK SLINGSHOT COLD BREW

Open your bottle of ready-to-drink Slingshot Cold Brew and drink it straight from the bottle. Or you can be more demure and pour it over ice in your favorite glass and sip. Add a splash of milk or a dash of simple syrup, too. It’s flexible.

 

CONCENTRATE SLINGSHOT COLD BREW

Slingshot Cold Brew concentrate is just a 1:1 ratio of water to coffee. You can make it cold by mixing with cold water. You can make it hot by mixing with boiling water. OR… mix it 1:1 with milk just shy of a boil, or milk from the icebox for a hot or cold latte-like drink.
