Step One: Brew Your Cold Brew Coffee

Making your own cold brew coffee is easier than you think. I personally love using a French Press for this. Simply mix one cup of coarsely ground light roasted coffee beans with three cups of cold water and let it steep overnight. If you’re new to making cold brews, don’t worry – I have a handy tutorial in the description to guide you through the process. And if you want to take your coffee game to the next level, I’ve also included some recommendations for coffee beans that will make your Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew even more delightful.

Step Two: Whip Up the Vanilla Syrup

Homemade vanilla syrup is a game-changer in this recipe. It’s incredibly easy to make. Just mix half a cup of sugar, half a cup of boiling water, and one tablespoon of vanilla extract. Stir or shake it well until the syrup dissolves nicely. I personally love using mason jars for this, and you can store the syrup in the fridge for a month or two. Trust me, once you try this homemade vanilla syrup, you won’t want to go back to store-bought.

Step Three: Create the Sweet Cream

The secret to a luscious Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew lies in the sweet cream. In a separate container, mix half a cup of milk, two tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, one tablespoon of your homemade vanilla syrup, and one teaspoon of vanilla extract. For some added texture, I recommend using a milk frother. It creates a creamy and velvety consistency that will make you feel like a true barista. If you don’t have a milk frother, no worries – check out the description for my recommended frother.

Assemble Your Dreamy Creation

Now that you have your cold brew, vanilla syrup, and sweet cream ready, it’s time for the exciting part. Grab your favorite glass, add ice, and start with two tablespoons of vanilla syrup as a base. Then, fill the glass two-thirds full with your refreshing cold brew. Finally, top it off with the sweet cream. Look at this masterpiece – it’s almost identical to the Starbucks version! Take a moment to admire its beauty before giving it a taste.

The Ultimate Taste Test

But wait, we need a fair judgment. I’ve invited my husband, who never drinks Starbucks coffee, for a blind taste test. He’ll try both drinks and give us his honest opinion.
