Cold Coffee | Part 3 |
Summer is coming to a close, but you’re still in the mood for cold coffee. If you’ve been following my series on cold brew and iced coffee, then your summer has been full of delicious cold coffee to help you survive the hot West Texas summers.
Palace has been serving the Cold Fashioned for two years and everyone always hates to see it leave the menu. If you're one of those people, you’re in luck. I want to share the recipe with you so you can make it in your own home! First, you’ll need to acquire a few ingredients that you may not have around the house. You’ll need to get Angostura bitters, orange bitters, and grenadine. You can find Angostura and orange bitters at most grocery stores in the aisle with drink mixers. You’ll even see grenadine in the same aisle, but I don’t suggest buying it. The grenadine you’ll find in grocery stores is sugary sweet and lacking the tartness that is an essential characteristic of grenadine. At Palace, we use grenadine from Liber & Co. This is a fantastic line of cocktail syrups that can be used in a wide variety of drinks. (Also available for purchase in all three shops!)
A cocktail shaker is a bonus, but not necessary to make the Cold Fashioned. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can simply add all the ingredients in a glass and stir to incorporate. The only thing you’ll miss using this method is the creamy foam on top of the drink.
4 oz Cold Brew
.5 oz Grenadine
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
3 dashes Orange Bitters
Add all ingredients to cocktail shaker
Add ice and shake for 20 seconds
Strain into rocks glass with fresh ice
Garnish with a cherry an orange twist
I want to encourage you to play around with your cold brew concentrate. Try out a crazy idea for a drink. It may or may not work out, but your recipe may be the next Cold Fashioned.
Go for gold,
