Drink ideas for sober October.

Instead of your usual cocktail on halloween night, why not try a bunch of new coffee recipes!

Create your own caramel syrups

Try melting down sugar and adding cream to create a caramel syrup. For salted caramel, you could add a pinch of salt or you could add blended hazelnut and pistachio for a nutty twist.

Make your own pumpkin spice latte

Capture the essence of the season by using pumpkin spice puree and spices such as cinnamon in your coffee. To go one step further, you could boil the milk separately on the hob adding cinnamon sticks, cardamom, vanilla pods and then add it to your coffee for a more intense flavour.

Chicory coffee

Chicory root is often added to reduce the bitter taste in coffee as well as providing multiple health benefits such as being an anti-inflammatory and improving gut health. It can be either added to coffee to reduce the levels of caffeine or added to hot water for a complete drink substitute. Chicory root is naturally caffeine-free so is a great replacement recipe for those who are aiming to reduce their caffeine intake.

Try coconut milk instead of whole milk

Coconut milk will provide an alternative flavour to make your drinks taste new and original. Coconut milk also is full of health benefits including improving your cardiovascular health and providing you with important healthy fats.

Try the trendy dalgona coffee

This whipped treat is easy to make, only requiring a little bit of patience. Combining sugar, water and instant coffee, you just need to whisk them together to achieve a foamy whipped consistency. This mixture is then added on top of milk to be stirred in. For finishing touches, sprinkle coffee powder over and add a spoon.

Matcha lattes

If you are a tea lover, try a matcha latte. The combination includes green tea powder, water and milk. The drink has been made popular due to its numerous health benefits and great taste. If you are willing to try green tea in the form of a coffee, then this is the perfect brew for you!

Iced coffee and coffee ice cubes

If you often opt for drinking hot coffee, try something iced for a change. Iced coffee is a refreshing twist on the traditional recipe often having a variety of flavour additions to choose from. To make your iced beverage remain strong in flavour and avoid it watering down, freeze ice cubes made of coffee and add those instead of regular ice cubes.

Bulletproof coffee

Bulletproof coffee is a recipe involving adding butter to your coffee. This ‘keto’ recipe will keep you feeling fuller for a longer period of time and is perfect for a quick breakfast. The combination of coffee, butter and oil provides healthy fats to keep you going throughout the morning. For coffee lovers, this is a perfect excuse to just drink coffee for breakfast.
