Flavors Lattes and Iced Coffees
The most obvious way of increasing coffee sales during spring is by introducing seasonal drinks such as flavored lattes and iced coffees. First, consider what flavors are associated with the season, such as fresh citrus fruits, herbs, flowers, and berries. Then use these ingredients to craft unique drinks that will appeal to customers who are looking for something new and exciting. Besides ingredients, consider adding fun toppings or mixing techniques that add flair to each drink.Here are some coffee idea recipes to consider that impart spring flavors.
Lavender Honey Latte
Start with steamed milk and some honey, then add a few drops of lavender simple syrup. Lavender simply syrup is made by combing 1 cup of sugar, one cup of water, and 1 tablespoon of culinary lavender. Heat these three ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool, and then strain into a storage container and refrigerate.
Rose Iced Coffee
Add floral notes to your coffee by slowly mixing in rosewater. Then, top with a garnish of dried rose petals for the perfect Instagram-worthy drink.
Strawberry Hibiscus Cooler
Make a quick, simple syrup with hibiscus tea and chopped strawberries for a beautiful pink concoction. Serve it over ice for a refreshing way to beat the heat this spring.
Mix espresso with hot chocolate, a touch of cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and some cream. Sip and savor!
Green Tea Frappuccino
Blend green tea powder and sugar with cold milk for a smooth beverage that is perfect for sipping on a hot day.
Vietnamese Iced coffee
A longtime favorite! Combine strong-brewed coffee with condensed milk over ice for a creamy, sweet, almost dessert-like treat.
For the raspberry mojito coffee, mix muddled raspberries, lime juice, and simple syrup with a cold brew or espresso before topping with chopped mint and a raspberry garnish.
