Brewing the Colours of Joy: Coffee Recipes to Elevate Your Holi

If you’re throwing a Holi party, you need to make sure that our delicious coffee cocktails and mocktails are on your menu!

Read on to see how we incorporate our favourite cold brew into our cocktails, with 3 delicious recipes, perfect for this festive season! The best part is that you don’t have to brew anything on the spot, just keep your cache of cold brew cans ready to pop open and pour into your glass!

2. Spicy Cold Brew

A punchy, rum-based cocktail perfect for the Indian palate, this recipe is a boozy delight. The fruit juices offset the spiciness of rum, and you can always add in a dash of bitters for an explosion of flavour.
