This Iced Coffee is sweetened slightly with a whipped cream topping and flavor-enhanced with a sprinkle of sea salt. All mixed together and you’ll get the most deliciously complex (but EASY!) coffee drink you’ve never had,  Iced Sea Salt Coffee. Coffee that is not bitter because it is cold brewed, slightly sweet with rich cream that is has a hint of sea salt to top it off. Yup, salty, sweet, rich, creamy coffee. It will blow your mind, or at least give you a new favorite way to enjoy your coffee.

About a year ago we moved from Los Angeles to Sacramento. At first I thought it would just be a fun new adventure and I was only sad about leaving friends and family behind. Plus, I don’t know how familiar you are with either location’s real estate market, but you can buy about four times the house up here so that was a really nice silver lining! Then the homesickness kicked in.

Today’s recipe (which is generously sponsored by Viva® Vantage®) is another one of my local hometown favorite foods, Iced Sea Salt Coffee.The base of this drink is a classic cold brewed coffee which is where Viva® Vantage® towels come into play. I make gallons of iced coffee all summer long and with the heat refusing to die down I’ve been drinking it well into the Fall season. Until recently I had been using my super expensive chinois to help make my iced coffee because:

  1. I was too lazy to go out and buy coffee filters (give me a break I use a Keurig!) and…
  2. My paper towels would pill and disintegrate into my coffee giving me paper towel flavored iced coffee…I know, delicious right?

Recently I attended a Viva® Towels home party and in addition to having a great time getting to know some local bloggers (a big deal for a newer blogger like me!) I got to enjoy a delicious brunch and test out these towels that had a great stretchy-strength. Viva® Towels is asking people to switch things up for 7 days and use Viva® Vantage® in place of the ones they currently use and I was happy to take the challenge.

People at the party were using paper towels as colanders and I immediately knew I had a pretty good shot at putting my chinois back to use in its normal capacity and making a kitchen switch up to Viva® Vantage®.

Other great switch ups were using Viva® Vantage® to:

  • Wrap a paper towel around lettuce to keep it fresher longer
  • Drain your cooked bacon kabobs to wick away extra fat and calories
  • Scrub potatoes and mushrooms clean easily without any fibers left behind

and my favorite

  • Putting a wet paper towel under your cutting board to prevent it from moving while you work!

It was so easy to use them, I didn’t even have to fold them into multiple layers and I had no issues with pilling or tearing even with the weight of the liquid and coffee grounds pouring through the towels. Cold brewed Sea Salt Coffee is the most amazing cold brewed coffee drink you've probably never tried.

  1. I am the biggest coffee fan there is. I am definitely picking up the stuff to make this today! Yum.

  2. My husband would love this and so would any of my coffee loving friends! I’m more of a tea gal but this sounds great!

  3. Iced coffee is a favorite thing of mine that I take seriously. I love cold brews, and pour over coffees so much because they have such a different flavor verses regular brew or syrups.

  4. Oh yes, please I need some of that iced sea salt coffee cold brewed energizer. I’m so into coffee, I have several types of coffee machines/sepresso/capresso/ machines. I will definitely try this and from the look of it, I need to try it soon.

  5. I’ve never heard of putting a wet paper towel under something to keep it still. Hubby loves iced coffee, I bet he’d enjoy this one.

    1. I hope you try it! I learned the paper towel under the cutting board trick from a thanksgiving episode on Food Network about how to carve the turkey while keeping the board still. I love it! And then I use it to clean up any messes after I am done.

    1. Me too. I just need it in one of those helmets with the straws attached so I can hold the kids and keep drinking it!

  6. Viva towels are so strong. I have been using them for a few months now and i will never go back. I will have to try this recipe. It would be delicious in the morning.

  7. I don’t usually drink any kinds of coffee, but this looks really good. Those Viva paper towels are really nice too. I know they help clean up messes real nice.

    1. I did it for the first time for a party for a client many years ago and now I have it in my fridge unless it is in the dead of winter. Even then I still may, haha. It is just too easy to make!

  8. I’ve been using cheese cloth but that looks like a great way to filter the coffee. I adore cold brew coffee now. Love that its lower in acid too.

    1. I used to as well! But with paper towels you get the super fine filmy leftovers out too that can pass through the cheesecloth! 🙂

  9. That iced coffee looks really refreshing, no wonder you love making it especially during the summer. And you really put that paper towel in to good use!

  10. this sounds so good. how do you keep the whipped cream? in the fridge or freezer? where can I find flaked salt? thank you

    1. It really doesn’t stay. You just need to use it up for this recipe. I added the link for the flaked salt in the recipe card. Just click on it and it’ll take you to it. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it!
