blood orange cold brew iced coffee


also known as what happens when you spike cold brew coffee with the perfectly not-too-sweet blood orange syrup, blood orange cold brew iced coffee will be your newest winter citrus obsession!



  • 8 ounces cold brew coffee
  • 2 tablespoons blood orange syrup (below)
  • optional: 2 tablespoons half and half or heavy cream

for the blood orange syrup

  • 3 blood oranges, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar


1. Make the blood orange syrup: Place the blood orange juice (3 blood oranges should yield about 1 cup juice) into a small saucepan. Cook the blood orange juice over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or so, until reduced by about 1/4. Meanwhile, as the blood orange juice cooks, make a blood orange-scented sugar. Place the blood orange zest and granulated into a small bowl. Use your fingers to work the blood orange zest into the sugar, until fragrant. Add the blood orange-scented sugar to the saucepan with the reduced blood orange juice. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves. Strain the syrup into a jar or resealable container & store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

2. To make a blood orange cold brew add your favorite cold brew coffee to a glass over ice. Stir in 1-2 tablespoons of blood orange syrup, depending how sweet your like your coffee to be. Top with a splash or two of your preferred creamer – I love half & half. Enjoy!!!


  • Blood oranges are readily available in most grocery stores this time of year. I find mine bagged at Trader Joe’s for a very reasonable price!
