Ingredient Notes

Rose Cold Foam ingredients in measuring cups and labeled.
  • Heavy cream
    Decadent cold foam can’t be made without heavy cream. It’s what gives cold foam the frothy texture it needs to float on top of a drink.
  • 2% milk
    To make the cold foam pourable, add milk, which thins out the heavy cream. Starbucks uses 2% milk, but feel free to use any milk of your choice.
  • Rose syrup
    Store-bought or homemade rose syrup can be used.

Recipe Notes

Make the rose syrup ahead of time if making it from scratch.
If using homemade rose syrup, make that first so it has time to cool. It’s super easy to make at home with water, sugar, and dried rose petals.

Use an electric milk frother.
If you don’t have a French press, another option is to use an electric milk frother that has a cold foam setting.

Don’t overfill or underfill the French press.
If it’s underfilled, the plunger won’t be able to touch the liquids before moving up and down and won’t froth. The cold foam also increases in volume as you pump the plunger, so be careful not to overfill.

Expert Tips

  • To make a cold foam that feels just like the one from Starbucks, it’s important to create tiny, uniform bubbles. A French press helps get that ideal texture.
  • handheld milk frother can also be used, but the bubbles won’t be as tiny and uniform like it would in a French press or an electric milk frother.
  • Cold foam can replace milk or cream in bubble tea or iced tea latte.
  • You can make cold foam ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to 2 days, but it’s best to use it right away. It’ll likely lose some volume, so give the French press a few pumps before pouring.
  • Use leftover rose syrup to sweeten and flavor sparkling water, warm milk, or your favorite iced tea.

Questions You May Have

Does this cold foam have caffeine?

No, this cold foam does not contain any caffeinated ingredients.

Is cold foam just whipped cream?

Cold foam and whipped cream are a little different. Cold foam is a mixture of heavy cream and milk that are frothed together until pourable. Whipped cream is simply heavy cream that’s been whisked or whipped to hold its shape.

Can other milks be used to make cold foam?

Yes, you can use regular milk to make cold foam. Plant-based milks can also be swapped in, but the cold foam will be thinner since they don’t froth up as nicely.
