Tia's Cold Brew Thai Coffee - July Lively Libations 2018Tia’s “Cold Brew Thai Coffee”

Description: Cold brew can be more than coffee and water! Adding the Thai coffee ingredients to the Toddy brewing process, truly creates a rich smooth flavor that goes far beyond a typical Thai coffee. To complement this unique flavor blend, try adding a touch of Davinci Cranberry Spice Syrup.

Yield: 64 oz. of Cold Brew Thai Coffee

Ingredients:
• 1lb of Ground Dark Roast Coffee
• 6 Star Anise
• 1 Orange
• 2 tbsp. of Cardamom

Directions: Prepare a Toddy Consumer Model Coffee Maker for brewing - insert stopper, filter and filter bag. Layer the water, coffee, and cardamom in the Toddy. Slice the orange in half. Take 1 half and squeeze the juice out over the coffee. Cut the other half into 4 slices and add them to the Toddy. Stir all ingredients gently together making sure everything is saturated. Brew for 12 hours then drain the brew into a decanter. Add the sweetened condensed milk and the cranberry syrup. Finally stir everything together, pour it over ice and enjoy!

Jessica's Dirty Cold Brew Chai - July Lively Libations 2018Jessica’s "Dirty Cold Brew Chai"

Description: The combination of DaVinci Cold Brew and Oregon Chai creates a perfectly smooth and energizing beverage. This recipe is great all year round -- on hot summer days when it’s hard to choose between iced tea or coffee through fall when the leaves start changing and it’s cool but you’re not quite ready for pumpkin spice season.

Yield: 1, 16 oz. Drink

Ingredients:
• 1 oz. of DaVinci Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
• 7 oz. of Water
• 4 oz. of Oregon Chai Spiced Chai
• 2 oz. of Ice
• 2 oz. of Milk or Alternative Milk
Optional: syrup for extra flavoring

Optional Garnish: Savory Spice Shop Saigon Cinnamon

Directions: Dilute the cold brew concentrate with water (1 part concentrate to 7 parts water) and set it aside. (TIP: It is easier to batch more cold brew than you need because of the ratio. We recommend 1 oz. of concentrate to 7 oz. of water). In a cold cup, mix 1 oz. of the diluted cold brew, the chai and your choice of milk (I prefer about 2 oz. of milk but you can adjust the amount to your taste). You may also substitute the milk with water if you prefer. Stir the contents of the cup to make sure it is completely mixed together then add ice and enjoy.
