Cold brew coffee is smooth and a little less acidic than coffee prepared with hot water. I tried it only because this White Russian cocktail recipe sounded so good.
I’m not sure a beverage that mixes cold brew with vodka, Kahlùa, and chocolate milk is the best way to taste test its merits (try a glass of the coffee iced, all by itself, to judge its nuanced flavor), but I can tell you that this is a mighty fine drink. I love the look of the fudge-drizzled glass.
