Cold Brew Gin & Tonic - The Next Big Thing

Ok, so we’ve all heard of Cold Brew, right? (Quick, if you haven’t, you can read more here) The delicious stuff is everywhere at the moment; from independent wine shops, to coffee bars and delicatessens, it’s even filtered down to the high street, with Starbucks offering cold brew coffee in a selection of their London outposts.

But, as always when The Next Big Thing goes mainstream, there’s already a new kid on the block – in this case it’s Cold Brew’s older, stronger, better looking brother: the Coffee Gin & Tonic, or C&T.

That’s gin, cold brew coffee and tonic.

We’ve noticed it popping up in independent coffee shops all over the place, but now you can make it at home, too. Because what’s better than a great coffee? Added gin, of course.

C&T recipe


1 shot Sandows Cold Brew (or find out how to make your own cold brew coffee at home)

1 shot gin (any you like, really)

Tonic water (we recommend the all-natural Fever-Tree Premium Indian Tonic Water, but any decent tonic will work well)

1. Fill a glass with cubed ice

2. Add one shot of your favourite gin

3. Add one shot of the cold brew

4. Top with your favourite tonic water

5. Enjoy!

While you might expect this to be a particularly bitter drink, the flavours in the coffee, gin and tonic water blend together to create something lighter, more fruity and sweeter than either a G&T or a coffee.

Trust us, this is going to be huge. Move over, Espresso Martini, you’ve got competition.
