6 Best Coffee Drink Recipe Ideas You Need to Try

If you are tired of drinking the same coffee each morning, take a chance with any of these creative ways to get your daily dose of caffeine. Whether you like hot coffee, iced coffee, or something that is closer to a milkshake, you’ll find something that you like on this list. Chances are that if you are already drinking coffee on a daily basis, you will already have most of the ingredients at home already, and if you’re new to coffee, you may just find something that is your new go-to drink!

1. Thai Iced Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • Crushed Ice
  • 1 teaspoon of almond flavoring
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cardamom
  • 4 tablespoons of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar

How to Make:

Mix the ground cardamom and ground coffee, and then brew. When it has finished brewing, add the sugar and almond flavor. Mix well and allow the coffee to reach a lukewarm temperature.

Fill four highball glasses halfway with crushed ice and then 2/3 with the coffee. Add 1 teaspoon of heavy cream to each glass.

If you would like the layered effect in the cup, hold a spoon above the coffee and pour the cream slowly onto the spoon so the cream will float to the top. These proportions will make 4 servings.

2. Black Magic Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • 10oz of freshly brewed black coffee
  • ¼ teaspoon of chocolate extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of hazelnut extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of rum extract
  • Your choice of sugar substitute, like Splenda

How to Make:

Pour the freshly brewed coffee into your mug. Add the chocolate, hazelnut, and rum extracts to taste, you may not use all 1/4 teaspoon of each. Add your sweetener, stir, and enjoy!

3. Cortissimo Shot

Use this as a base for a number of other drinks.

You’ll Need:

20g fine ground coffee per shot.

How to Make:

Extract with hot water under high pressure. Aim for a quick extraction. Tamp the coffee firmly to maximize this process. 0.7oz should be extracted per shot. Crema will be golden brown with a taste that is sweet. Top with foamed milk to make a Cortado or flat white coffee and serve in a regular cup.

4. Creamy Iced Vanilla Caramel Coffee

You’ll Need:

  • 4 cups of cold or room temperature brewed coffee
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/3 cup of french vanilla non-dairy creamer
  • ¼ cup of caramel ice cream topping

If you prefer to make this with drip coffee, you will brew the coffee first and then stir in the spices and molasses. Strain this into your cup and then add milk if desired.

  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup of heavy cream
