You can swap out these ingredients with your favorites, but this recipe is all about quick and easy.

How to Make it

To make this bubbling brew, first you’ll need to fill a glass with ice and add some unsweetened cold brew coffee.

pour cold coffee over ice

Then, add your milk or cream to a small pitcher or bowl and stir in your flavoring like the vanilla syrup pictured here.

If you prefer to use flavored creamer, that works too. Though I would use less than the milk this recipe calls for.

add purple gel coloring and vanilla to cream

Add the food coloring to your milk and using an electric frother, mix it all up and create those delicious bubbles.

Gently pour over your cold brew and voila! Magic!

Make this fun drink for yourself or to share. Use yellow or orange food gel to create a coffee for each Sanderson sister!

And if you want to make a boozy version, swap out half of the milk for Bailey’s Irish Cream or Rumchata before mixing in the color and enjoy!
