Let’s talk about a little magic trick you can pull off right in your kitchen – whipping up your very own Dutch Bros Campout Cold Brew. Oh yes, we’re spilling the beans on how to recreate that divine sip of chill, roasted perfection mixed with the sweet, comforting whispers of chocolate and a hint of smoky goodness that makes it unmistakably campout-vibes-in-a-cup.

How to make Dutch bros campout cold brew

The Dutch Bros Campout Cold Brew is a concoction that perfectly blends the boldness of Dutch Bros’ Cold Brew with the sweetness of chocolate milk, and it’s infused with a toasted marshmallow flavor for that ideal campfire essence.

What You’ll Need to Whip Up This Magic:

  • Coffee Beans: ¾ cup of your bravest, boldest dark roast coffee beans, ready to grind. These beans are the backbone of your brew, so pick a fighter.
  • Water: 4 cups of the clear stuff, filtered to perfection for the cleanest taste.
  • Chocolate Syrup: A generous swirl, let your heart decide how much.
  • Toasted Marshmallow Syrup: For that campfire kiss, about 2 tablespoons should do the trick. Can’t find it? We’ve got hacks coming right up.
  • Milk or Cream: Just a splash to bring it all home.
  • Ice: To chill it down and make it cool.

Instructions:

  1. Take those dark roast beans and grind them up nice and coarse – you’re not creating fairy dust here, just setting the stage for some solid extraction.
  2. Mix your ground coffee with the water in a jar or a French press, whatever you’ve got handy. Stir it gently, like you’re coaxing the flavors out, then cover it up and let it sit out of the sun’s way for about 12 to 18 hours. Yes, it’s a long wait, but all good things take time, right?
  3. Once the time’s up, say goodbye to the grounds by straining your brew through a coffee filter or cheesecloth. What you’ve got now is a cold brew concentrate – strong, smooth and ready for action.
  4. Warm a little bit of milk or cream in the microwave or on the stove – just to the point where you can stir in the chocolate syrup and toasted marshmallow syrup without a fuss. If the toasted marshmallow syrup plays hard to get at your local store, a splash of vanilla syrup mixed with a dash of brown sugar can sing the same tune, just with a different accent.
  5. Combine your glorious cold brew concentrate with the chocolate and toasted marshmallow-flavored milk. Stir it like you mean it.
  6. Serve It Cool: Grab a glass, pile up the ice, and pour your concoction over. If it’s too strong, loosen it up with a bit more water or milk.

Tips to Make Your Brew Even Better:

  • Experiment: Play around with the syrups and the coffee-to-water ratio until you hit your sweet spot. More syrup, less syrup, stronger coffee – make it your own!
  • Storage Smarts: Your cold brew concentrate will keep in the fridge for up to two weeks, so you can keep the good times rolling.
  • Get Creative: Swap out syrups, try different milks, toss in some spices – who knows? Your next experiment might just be your new favorite.

What to serve with

So you’ve got yourself a Dutch Bros Campout Cold Brew, and you’re thinking, “What on earth do I pair this beauty with?” Well, my friend, you’ve hit the jackpot because I’m about to walk you through an array of pairings that will transform your cold brew experience from “Oh, this is nice” to “Holy smokes, where has this been all my life?”

First up, let’s talk sweet treats: You’ve got this rich, chocolatey, marshmallow-y drink in your hand – naturally, you might lean towards something sugary. But here’s the plot twist: try pairing it with something that balances its richness. How about a classic buttery croissant? Or, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, a slice of banana bread with a sprinkle of walnuts. These aren’t just any pairings; they’re the Robin to your Batman, bringing out the best in each other.

Feeling a little nutty? Well, you’re in luck! Almonds, pecans, or walnuts – they’re not just for squirrels, folks. Grab a handful of these bad boys. Their earthy crunch is a game-changer when enjoyed with a sip of that campout glory. It’s like crunching on a bit of nature while embarking on a flavor adventure.

Say cheese! But let’s ditch the camera this time. We’re talking about actual cheese here. You might not think it at first, but a sharp, aged cheddar or a creamy brie can be just the ticket. Cheese has this fabulous way of making coffee flavors pop while the cold brew can cut through the richness of the cheese. It’s a flavor tango that’s bound to get your taste buds dancing!

Brunch vibes, anyone? Imagine this: a sunny weekend morning, you’ve got your Dutch Bros marvel sitting pretty next to a plate piled high with fluffy scrambled eggs, a couple of slices of crispy bacon, and maybe even some avocado toast. The savory goodness of your breakfast creates this perfect harmony with the sweet, smoky notes of your beverage. Plus, it’s a surefire way to kick off your day on a high note.

Last, but not least, dessert! Who could forget? If your sweet tooth is still calling out for something more, why not go all in? A slice of chocolate cake or a chocolate chip cookie—because let’s face it, chocolate on chocolate is a decision you’ll never regret. Or maybe a scoop of vanilla ice cream? It’s like sending your taste buds to a cool, creamy paradise.

Ingredients Substitutes

Campout Cold Brew Dutch Bros

Let’s talk about whipping up a Dutch Bros Campout Cold Brew but with a twist – using substitutes! Sometimes, you open your cabinets and realize you’re out of a few key items, or maybe you just want to put a personal twist on the classic recipe.

Swap #1: The Coffee Base

Original: Dutch Bros’ Cold Brew Coffee

Substitute: Any dark roast coffee

Don’t have access to Dutch Bros’ signature blend? No problemo! Grab any dark roast coffee you have. The darker, the better for that deep, rich flavor. Brew it strong, chill it, and you’re already halfway there.

Swap #2: Chocolate Syrup

Original: Standard chocolate syrup

Substitute: Cocoa powder + sweetener

If the syrup is scarce, mix a tablespoon of cocoa powder with a teaspoon of your favorite sweetener – be it honey, agave, or good ol’ sugar – and enough water to make a smooth paste. This mix will give you a chocolaty kick with a homemade touch.

Swap #3: Toasted Marshmallow Syrup

Original: Toasted Marshmallow Syrup

Substitute: Vanilla extract + brown sugar

Toasted Marshmallow Syrup not on your shelf? Let’s improvise. A combo of vanilla extract and brown sugar can mimic that caramelized, toasty sweetness. Mix a teaspoon of vanilla extract with two tablespoons of brown sugar, heat it a bit, and stir until the sugar dissolves. It’s not traditional, but it’ll tickle your taste buds in the right direction.

Swap #4: Milk or Cream

Original: Any milk or cream

Substitute: Oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk

Whether you’re out of cow’s milk or just hopping on the dairy-free train, oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk can step up to the plate. Each brings a unique flavor and can complement the other ingredients beautifully, making your cold brew smooth and delightful.

Swap #5: The Topping

Original: Dutch Bros’ signature Soft Top

Substitute: Homemade whipped cream or coconut cream

Missing that cloud-like topping? You can whip your own! A bit of heavy cream whipped up with a touch of sugar will do the trick. Or, for a vegan twist, chill a can of coconut milk overnight and scoop off the solid part to whip it into the coconut cream. Add a sweetener if you like it sweet, and voila!

Final Thoughts

You just made your very own Dutch Bros Campout Cold Brew! It’s like a little escape in a cup, anytime you need it. So go ahead, take that first sip, let the flavors do a little dance on your taste buds, and bask in the glory of a job well done.
