My Starbucks obsession is the Nitro Cold Brew.
Nitro Cold Brew Coffee is cold brew coffee that is infused with nitrogen and stored in a keg.
A Nitro Cold Brew is poured slowly from a tap and thanks to the nitrogen, develops a foam of fine bubbles on top (think of a Guinness beer)
I love Nitro because it has a slightly sweeter and nuttier taste, as well as a really velvety and rich mouthfeel – without anything added in.
However, I recently found out that there is a secret way to order your Nitro Cold Brew which makes it UNBELIEVABLY good.
I am mad that I have ordered hundreds of Nitros and never know to order them like this.
You don’t have to make the same mistake. You can order the Upside Down Nitro from the Starbucks Secret Menu and have the best possible Nitro experience every time.
Just be sure to grab the recipe below – this drink can’t be found on the regular Starbucks menu.
How to Order the Upside Down Nitro
Order a Grande Nitro.
Note: You can’t order a Venti Nitro, or a Nitro with ice because it makes the nitrogen bubbles weird. So don’t try it.
Ask the barista to add 1 pump of Toffee Nut Syrup. This accentuates the nutty taste without making the coffee too sweet.
Add Vanilla Sweet Cream Foam, but ask to have the drink poured upside down – with the Cold Foam in the bottom of the cup and the Nitro poured on top.
Then – watch the magic happen as the nitrogen bubbles pull the sweet cream up from the bottom and infuse the whole coffee with it.
The result is the smoothest, creamiest cold brewed coffee ever.
Don’t forget to thank and tip your Barista for making you the best Nitro Cold Brew that you have ever tasted.
