Cold Brew coffee is all the rage and is especially perfect for the hot summer months. Dzung Duong of Honeysuckle Catering is showing us just how simple it is to whip up some cold brew at home. Try her scrumptious Vietnamese Iced Coffee this weekend or anytime you need a little caffeine jolt. We promise you'll be hooked!
I grew up around Vietnamese Coffee. Every morning, my dad would have a cup of it and the Chicory scent would waft down the hall into my room. Then it was time to hurry off to school.

Traditionally, Vietnamese Iced Coffee is made with hot coffee then cooled down with ice. Seems kind of counterintuitive to me. But with all of today's popular coffee techniques I thought the ideal way to make it would be via the Cold Brew method. We'll get a nice and concentrated jolt!
