3 Delicious & Easy Coffee Soda Recipes

Words Erin Meister

Coffee sodas are a light and effervescent drink, perfect for any time of day. Adding a little bit of lift and bubble to an easy-breezy cold-brew concentrate can turn a regular joe into something elegant yet still accessible. Learn how to make it at home with these three simple recipes.

One of the great things about cold-brew coffee is that a little bit of concentrate goes a long way. You can make a bigger batch and serve coffee-based mixed drinks for a crowd. Learn how to use the OXO Cold Brew Coffee Maker to make perfect cold-brew concentrate every time.

Want to take your coffee soda to the next level? Try chilling it with coffee ice cubes or making it with a different kind of cold brew, like chicory coffee, yerba mate, or Vietnamese cold brew.

Here are three quick and delicious recipes to add a little sparkle to your everyday cup, day or night.

Sparkling Coffee Lemonade


  • 1.5 oz cold-brew concentrate
  • juice of one lemon
  • simple syrup
  • ice
  • seltzer


In a tall glass, mix cold-brew concentrate, lemon juice, and simple syrup (to taste), and add ice to the top of the glass. Slowly pour in seltzer to fill, and stir gently with a long spoon. Garnish with a lemon wedge or a twist.

Cold-Brew Spritzer


  • 2 oz cold-brew concentrate
  • 3 oz tonic water
  • ice


This simple mixture is actually quite nice on its own, but it’s also a fantastic base for any number of jazzy additions. A splash of homemade syrup (like vanilla or rosemary-ginger) makes a refreshing and unexpected cool bevvie for a weeknight; a dash of simple syrup and some Campari makes cocktail-meets-coffee hour; or add this to a mixture of muddled mint, lime, and white sugar for a kind of caffeinated soft mojito.

Cold-Brew Egg Cream


  • 1 oz cold-brew concentrate
  • 2 tbs U-Bet chocolate syrup
  • seltzer
  • 1/2 oz milk or cream


In the bottom of a tall chilled glass, mix cold-brew concentrate and U-Bet syrup. Top with seltzer, leaving about 1” of space at the top, and gently stir to mix. Slowly add milk or cream, and stir again one more time to combine. Drink immediately, and fuhggedaboudit.
