Harvest Spice Cream Cold Brew

The Royal DC Harvest Spice Cream Cold Brew

An autumnal cold brew that tastes like pumpkin pie.

For those unseasonably warm days, Keeli Telleen of The Royal in Washington, D.C. wanted to create a refreshing drink that showcased autumnal flavors. “With a little bit of salinity to balance the sweeter flavors, the harvest spice cream cold brew is meant to taste like pumpkin pie, including the whipped topping,” she says.


  • 6 oz. cold brew (The Royal uses Counter Culture's Big Trouble)
  • 2 oz. Harvest Spice Cream
  • ________________________________
  • Harvest Spice Cream
  • 10 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 5 oz. harvest spice syrup

  • 3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp ground cloves
