If you’re craving something fresh, zesty, and energizing in the morning, but lemonade doesn’t do it for you, here’s a bold idea: add citrus juice in your coffee.
You could enjoy them separately, but this combo is unlike anything you’ve tasted before. The sour lemon/lime flavor complements the bitterness of the coffee, adding a fun twist to a regular morning.
Read on to find 5 citrus-infused iced coffee recipes perfect for busy mornings and hot summer days.
SWEET CITRUS COLD BREW COFFEE
In an airtight container, combine the coffee grinds and water and leave in the fridge for 12-16 hours. Once the cold brew coffee is ready, strain it with a nut milk bag into a container. Fill two glasses with ice and pour the sweetened citrus juice. Pour the coffee on top and stir to combine. Garnish with candied citrus peel and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Make coffee ice cubes or freeze citrus juice into ice cubes to avoid watering down your coffee with regular ice.
LIME-INFUSED ICED COFFEE
In a small container, combine the lime zest, lime juice, sugar, and water and microwave until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens. You can also prepare the syrup on a stovetop. Set aside, cover, and let cool.
Fill two glasses with ice, pour the lime syrup, lime slices, and sparkling or tonic water. Next, add the chilled espresso or cold brew. Stir to combine, garnish with lime slices and lime zest, and enjoy immediately.
Sträva tip: Mix lime and lemon juice to add a little more zing to this recipe, but make sure to increase the amount of sweetener to balance out the acidic taste.
FRESH GRAPEFRUIT ICED COFFEE
In an airtight container, combine the coffee grinds and water and leave in the fridge for 12-16 hours. Once the cold brew coffee is ready, fill two glasses with ice and pour the grapefruit juice. Pour the coffee next top and stir to combine. Garnish with grapefruit slices and serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Some grapefruits have a slightly bitter taste that can take over the taste of the coffee, so make sure to sweeten the juice beforehand.
COLD BREW COFFEE LEMONADE
In an airtight container, combine the coffee grinds and water and leave in the fridge for at least 12-16 hours. Once the cold brew coffee is ready, prepare two ice-filled glasses, add lemon slices and pour the lemon juice over the ice. Pour the coffee on top slowly to form a separate layer. Serve immediately.
Sträva tip: Add a splash of tonic water to the lemon juice for a fun, refreshing, fizzy twist.
ICED ORANGE ESPRESSO
In a cocktail shaker, combine the orange juice, espresso shots, sweetener, and ice. Shake well and pour into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with orange slices. Serve immediately.
Sträva tip: You can substitute the orange juice with lemon juice or use both for a fresh twist. If you use lemon juice, add sweetener to balance out the acidic taste.
