  1. Place ice cream in a cup. Pour cold brew concentrate over ice cream.
  2. Garnish with a cherry. Use a straw for stirring and drinking.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Ice cream should be slightly softened so that it can be easily mixed with the coffee and drinkable. For a mocha float, use chocolate ice cream. Experiment with different flavors of ice cream and different flavors of Gevalia® Cold Brew!

I've made this a few times now. Think of it as a cold brewed affogato. It's perfect for summer parties. I used homemade ice cream which I put in the glasses I intended to use for serving. This w...
