For a coffee enthusiast looking to make a delightful cocktail using coldbrew coffee, the **Frappuccino** is an excellent choice. This beverage blends the robust, bold flavors of coffee with the smooth potency of vodka, resulting in a refreshing drink that's perfectly balanced for a caffeine kick alongside a spirited undertone. Served cold in a highball glass, its simple composition of vodka and coldbrew coffee makes it easy to prepare, while its 4.5/5 rating ensures satisfaction for those who appreciate both coffee and cocktails. Shaking the ingredients, rather than stirring, brings out a delightful froth that adds to its appeal.

If you're interested in exploring a creamy, indulgent option, the **Brown Cow** might also be a great alternative. Though traditionally using coffee liqueur, a swap for coldbrew coffee could yield a deliciously rich blend when mixed with milk. This is a fantastic drink for those mornings when you need a pick-me-up or when you want to unwind with a smooth, nutty, and subtly sweet cocktail. It's served in a lowball glass and boasts a 3.97/5 rating—a testament to its timeless appeal and delightful flavor profile.

Both of these cocktails effectively utilize the depth and richness of coldbrew coffee, each offering a unique experience. Whether you prefer the simple and strong Frappuccino or the creamy and comforting Brown Cow, you're sure to find a new favorite way to enjoy coldbrew coffee, accompanied by a touch of alcohol.
