Hikers Brew x Hibear Recipe:

Coconut Cold Brew Bourbon Cocktail

Take happy hour to the next level with a cocktail that has some caffeinated kick. But don’t worry, this is nothing like the vodka Redbull’s of days past. This coconut milk-based concoction is smooth, tastefully sweetened, and has the perfect hints of caramel and vanilla. 

Look no further for a cocktail that’s made for afternoon drinks on the beach, and one that’ll quickly become your favorite thing to sip around the campfire, too. Spiked with refreshing cold brew and served on ice, this drink is ideal for the hottest summer days. And when it’s mixed with the campers choice liquor-– whiskey, well, it’s a beverage that’s just begging to be paired with your favorite flannel and a cracking flame.

When you start with the right tools and few quality ingredients, making a five-star beverage can be achieved just about anywhere. To make this drink shine, you’ll want to prepare some cold brew coffee ahead of time. This ensures you’ll have a silky smooth, never bitter base for your cocktail. And, you won’t have to worry about chilling coffee when you’re ready for a stronger beverage. Luckily, with the help of the Hibear AF, making the perfect cup of cold brew is easy.

When it comes to ingredients, the right coffee is key. For this cocktail, we suggest using the Red Rocks blend by Hikers Brew. Not only is this coffee high quality (and sustainably packaged), the gentle caramel flavor takes our cold brew cocktail to a whole new level. While other coffee-based cocktails can have an acidic undertone, this blend will bring all the flavor with none of the bitter bite. To add another layer of smoothness to the concoction, you’ll find coconut milk and agave nectar on the ingredient list. This makes for a cocktail that’s 100% vegan and is both creamier and lighter than your average milk-based drink.

Mix all of this goodness together with a hearty shake, and you’ve got a drink that’s guaranteed to keep the good times rollin.
