It’s surprisingly easy to whip up, but the flavor will trick your guests into thinking it’s come straight from a mixologist.

This way, you get to achieve a unique flavor profile with a caffeinated bonus.
11. Cold Brew White Russian
Let’s revamp another classic, shall we?
Although, I’m not sure why this one is called a “White Russian” when it’s very clearly a “Black Russian.”
The latter being a blend of vodka and coffee liqueur. To make it “White,” you need to add cream.
But regardless of the mix-up in the title, this Japanese-inspired cold brew cocktail is heavenly.
The secret ingredient is Nigori sake, a sweet spirit that lends itself well to coffee. You’ll use it instead of vodka for a more mellow taste.
And hey, you can always make this into a White Russian if you like. Just add a dash of heavy cream.
