The gingersnap cold brew from Gideon’s Bakehouse at Disney Springs in Orlando is one of the many sweet treats that add to the magic of Disney. At Gideon’s, cold brew coffee is shaken with oat milk and ginger syrup to make this sweet and spiced beverage.

The key ingredient for a creamy and comforting gingersnap cold brew is cookie butter. Cookie butter is a smooth spread made from spiced cookies called “speculoos.” The flavor is similar to gingerbread but with a little less kick.

When cookie butter is blended into cold brew coffee, it tastes like a gingersnap cookie. This cookie butter cold brew is the perfect balance of intense ginger spice and sweet, delicate flavor. For another Gideon’s Bakehouse-inspired drink, check out this peanut butter cold brew.

🍪 Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make a copycat Gideon’s bakehouse gingersnap cold brew:

  • Cold Brew Coffee: Without it, this wouldn’t be a gingersnap “cold brew.”You can use homemade or store-bought cold brew.
  • Milk: Gideon’s bakehouse uses oat milk in theirs. You can use any non-dairy barista blend oat milk or non-dairy alternative. If dairy’s okay, you can use milk or heavy cream.
  • Dried Ginger + Cinnamon: This combo of warming spices builds on the classic gingersnap flavor (you can also use allspice, clove, and nutmeg).
  • Cookie Butter: Cookie butter is typically made by combining ground spice cookies, oil, and sugar into a sweet, spreadable mixture.
  • Maple Syrup: Though optional, maple syrup adds a bit more sweetness along with a warming maple flavor that complements the drink well.

Recommended Tools:

  • French press, mason jar, or cold brew maker (to make homemade cold brew)
  • High-speed blender
  • Tall glass

👉 Recipe Tips

  • Blending cookie butter – Depending on which cookie butter you buy, it may have a hard time blending into cold liquid leaving the oil to float on top. If you don’t mind you can keep it in, or strain through a cheesecloth for a smooth texture.
  • Store-bought cold brew – Instead of making cold brew yourself, you can also use store-bought black cold brew. Double-check the ingredients and make sure there’s no cream or sugar added to it.
  • High-speed blender – To fully incorporate the cookie butter and spices into the cold brew, you’ll need a high-speed blender.
  • Don’t add too much ginger – A little bit of dried ginger goes a long way, so start with a little bit and add more to taste.

🔀 Variations

For enhancements and variation ideas, check out the list below:

  • Adjust flavor – To bolden the taste, feel free to modify the ginger and cinnamon measurements to your liking. You can also add more cookie butter.
  • Decaf – To make a decaf gingersnap cold brew, use decaf coffee cold brew or store-bought decaf coffee.
  • Make it sweeter – To sweeten things up, add powdered sugar, simple syrup, or brown sugar syrup as it will dissolve in the chilled liquid easier than granulated sugar.
  • Cold Foam – Add a luscious layer of cold foam to your cold brew. For vegan cold foam, you can use a non-dairy barista blend to froth into cold foam or follow these simple steps.
  • Gingerbread Cold Brew – To upgrade your gingerSNAP cold brew to a gingerBREAD cold brew, blend in a 1/2 teaspoon of molasses.
  • HOT Gingersnap LATTE – If you prefer hot coffee drinks, blend the spices and cookie butter with freshly brewed hot coffee instead of cold brew.

🧊 How To Store

If you happen to have any extra gingersnap cold brew, follow the recommendations below for safe storage.

Storing: We like storing leftover cold brew coffee in mason jars. It makes it super easy to grab the jar from the fridge and shake it to reblend. Enjoy within 2 to 3 days.
