As restrictions are starting to lift and we can start seeing friends and family outside, we are all excited at the thought of meeting friends for a coffee or lunch! Getting a new menu together, whilst managing stock and returning staff can be difficult, so here are some quick easy Spring drinks recipes you can offer.
Dairy-Free Option . . .
Being able to cater for everyone’s health requirements is now essential. We work closely alongside Gut Instinct who have just released their new Barista Edition Oat Milk which has a 15% oat content. This makes for a creamy and luxurious mouthfeel and a subtle sweetness.
The Sweetbird English Toffee syrup has a buttery sweetness with a rich, creamy aftertaste that compliments Gut Instinct Oat Milk for the perfect cooling Spring drink that includes your daily coffee fix!
Rhubarb is typically in season between April – June and is the perfect addition to your Spring Drinks Recipes to offer to your customers.
As such a quintessentially British flavour, Rhubarb is the ideal syrup to use for both hot and cold drinks. The perfect balance of sweet and sharp, Sweetbird Rhubarb syrup is made using British sugar and real rhubarb. Working as a simple soda with sparkling water and ice for a highly profitable and refreshing fizz or add to hot chocolate or frappés for something more indulgent.
*Alternatively use fresh mint to add flavour and garnish. Muddle in with the rhubarb syrup before adding the soda to release the flavour.
Chocolate Fix . . .
What better flavour to celebrate the hotter Spring months than chocolate. Perfect for ice-cold milkshakes and frappés or an indulgent hot chocolate or mocha. Whatever the weather these drinks shine through and will satisfy even the most extreme chocoholics!
For our Spring drinks recipes, we have paired up the Sweetbird Honeycomb Syrup in a classic chocolate milkshake with flavours of caramelised sugar with rich caramel notes to create a honeycomb syrup reminiscent of our favourite chocolate bar.

Getting Ready To Open!
We highly recommend you check all of your equipment before re-opening, ensuring that your coffee machine is in complete working order after being turned off for a little while. If you are able to do this in advance then one of our engineers will be able to come and help you if there are any issues.
