As a die-hard coffee enthusiast, very few things please me more than the glorious feeling of kicking back with a cool, refreshing glass of sweet (and tantalizingly tart) cold brew. Recently, though, a totally new brand joined the club, and it legitimately sounds like one of the greatest innovations known to mankind: cold brew that's already spiked with alcohol. Yes, it 100 percent exists already, and it's about to make your weekend, like, 10 times more interesting than ever before. So, if you haven't already given Cafe Agave's Spiked Cold Brew a shot, it looks seriously unreal.
In case you didn't know, Cafe Agave is the first of its kind. While bottled cold brew is all the rage right now, this is the very first brand to come with booze, and TBH, that's all I need in life. Cafe Agave is made up of premium cold brew coffee which is steeped for 12 hours, according to its website, and it's blended with a combination of wine, cream, agave syrup, sugar, and natural flavors. With 38 milligrams of caffeine, as well as a shockingly high ABV of 12.5 percent, there's no way you can go wrong. It's a literal dream come true.
Cafe Agave comes in four tasty flavors: Cafe Mocha, Salted Caramel, Vanilla Cinnamon, and Espresso Shot.
To start, the Cafe Mocha flavor combines creamy, chocolatey flavors and 100 percent Arabica coffee.
If you're all about warm vanilla, though, the Vanilla Cinnamon sounds like a snickerdoodle cookie, combining familiar vanilla flavors mixed with spices galore.
The Salted Caramel flavor, on the other hand, combines salty-sweet flavors for an entirely new experience.
And, finally, the espresso shot is absolutely perfect for that much-needed jolt of espresso brew, combined with dairy cream and agave. Yum.
According to Cafe Agave's website, its cold brew beverages manage to give you the best of both worlds: a boozy kick and a ton of caffeine. Cold brew on its own is delicious — don't get me wrong — but a little alcohol makes it even more fun.
On Cafe Agave's website, it says:
Because we believe no moment should go untaken. Because promising days and night should always deliver. And because we want what you want everything, all the time, twenty-four/seven. And we know that you can't achieve this from the sidelines. That's why we made it. So, yes, nothing is wrong with coffee the way it is. But we thought you might love it a little bit more our way. And it's unlike anything you've ever tasted.
If you're looking for a frozen snack to go along with that spiked, canned cold brew, try Culture Republick's Cold Brew & Chocolate Chip ice cream. With three billion live active cultures per pint, it's tasty and is pretty much guaranteed to balance you out. Plus, the brand commissions local artists to design its labels, and 10 percent of its profits go towards funding local arts programs. So sweet!
Cold brew is absolutely perfect the way it is, but Cafe Agave adds what it's always needed: a little booze. This is about to make my Friday way more fun, energized, and boozy, so cheers to that.
