For the best results, use high-quality cold brew coffee and heavy cream. You can also experiment with different flavors of syrup, like caramel or hazelnut. Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of the whipped cream can also give it an extra kick of flavor. Be sure to whisk the heavy cream and vanilla syrup until it forms soft peaks for the perfect consistency.

When making cold brew coffee, be sure to use coarsely ground coffee beans and let it steep in cold water for at least 12 hours for the best flavor. You can also make a large batch of cold brew and store it in the fridge for up to a week for easy access to your favorite coffee drink.
If you want to make this recipe even more indulgent, you can add a splash of Bailey’s Irish Cream or Kahlua for a boozy twist. However, be sure to drink responsibly and only consume alcohol if you are of legal age.
