How to Make a Double Torture Dutch Bros Drink:


  • 2 shots of Espresso
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons of Chocolate Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Flavoring
  • Whipped Cream (optional)
  • Coffee Brewer
  • Whisk

1. Make Coffee

The first step to making a batch of Double Torture Dutch Bros is to simply brew the coffee. If you’re using a coffee machine to brew it, you may want to use a medium-fine grind setting. But if you’re using a manual coffee grinder, a coarse grind setting is usually better. Then take two espresso shots and add them to a large cup.

2. Make Syrup & Combine

Now it’s time to make the syrup for this recipe, and first, you’ll need to heat the milk. Heat it just enough so that it gets warm but not hot. Once you have heated up the milk, add the espresso shot, vanilla, and sugar. Mix everything until the espresso and the sugar have dissolved in the milk. You can also use a blender to mix everything together. If you choose to use a blender, make sure it is completely clean and dry before making your syrup.

3. Enjoy

After you have mixed everything, you can pour your Double Torture Dutch Bros into a cup and top it off with whipped cream and a sprinkle of coffee grounds. You can also stir in any add-ins you like, such as whipped cream, cocoa, or caramel.

What Does Double Torture Coffee Taste Like?

Customers have raved that this drink tastes something like a creamy chocolate milk with a vanilla aftertaste. The only thing you need to keep in mind when making it is that it should be fresh. The fresher the coffee, the stronger and bolder it will be. Next up is the milk.

The amount of chocolate milk you use in this recipe plays a huge role in its flavor profile, so if you’re not a huge chocolate fan, you can substitute it with regular milk and a tablespoon of milk chocolate powder. This is because the taste of the coffee itself is a bit more subtle than regular coffee, so to balance it out, more cream is needed if the chocolate is too much.

Tips for an Extra-Smooth Beverage

You can use an immersion blender to blend your coffee and cream together. Blending your coffee and cream together using an immersion blender will create a creamier consistency without any lumps. This will result in an extra smooth drink. There are many immersion blenders on the market.

How to Store the Double Torture Dutch Bros

Once your Double Torture Dutch Bros has been blended, you can store it in the refrigerator. However, to prevent your beverage from losing its taste or forming lumps, make sure you shake it really well before each use. You can store your beverage in a mason jar or a plastic container. If you want to make sure your beverage stays fresh for as long as possible, make sure you close the lid tightly after each use.
