Tuesday, April 20th is National Cold Brew Day and we’re jittery just thinking about all the tasty drinks that can be found around San Diego! From cocktails to morning pick-me-ups, here are some top spots to sip cold brews next Tuesday.

Sip back and relax with a caffeinated cocktail at the Duck Dive, in PB, on National Cold Brew Day! Their delicious Deja Brew blended drink is made with vodka, Kahlua, Modern Times Cold Brew, Coco Lopez, crème de cacao, and fresh vanilla. Did you know cold brew generally has more caffeine than regular drip coffee? So this beverage is sure to keep you cool, and caffeinated all day long.

Spill the Beans, a coffee and bagel shop with locations in the Gaslamp and Seaport Village, makes their cold brew in house daily, using a single origin Guatemala medium roast bean. Try their one-of-a-kind Chaga Cold Brew, which comes infused with chaga powder, cacao, cinnamon, vanilla, monk fruit sweetener, and milk. Pair with any specialty bagel and cream cheese, or breakfast sando, for the perfect way to start your morning!
