Coffee is definitely one of those go-to beverages for the colder seasons, but what about during the springtime when things start heating up a bit?
Don't worry – coffee is so versatile that it's perfect drink for any time of year.
If you're looking for delicious spring coffee drinks to try in the new season then you're in the right place, because we have them all here for you!
10 Spring Coffee Drinks (Best Options For This Season)
1. Lavender Latte
We know spring to be the season where all the flowers come into bloom, making the Lavender Latte perfectly festive.
This one is made just like you would any latte (hot coffee and steamed milk) but includes lavender simple syrup as well!
If you want to make it equally as pleasing to the eye as the tastebuds, ask if they have some dried lavender to garnish.
We found that oat milk tastes especially delicious with this one. For your average lavender latte, it’ll be about 75 calories.
2. Cold Brew Bloody Mary
This one is perfect for some springtime brunch! This is one of the best ways to have Bloody Mary cocktails without alcohol, and it packs a punch of energy!
It's made like your traditional Bloody Mary (tomato juice, lemon juice, tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, etc.), but replace the vodka with cold brew coffee and a bit of sugar syrup if you'd like.
It's not bad on calories either, if that matters to you, at approximately 57 calories per serving!
3. Café con Miel
Con miel, means “coffee with honey” in Spanish, and that’s pretty much exactly what this sweet drink entails.
Add in a bit of milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and it’s perfect for sipping out on the balcony while listening to the birds chirp.
It’s just slightly sweet, making it a great daily coffee drink.
You really want the milk to be thick and frothy, as this is a more luxurious drink. We found that regular whole milk does taste the best, but it's versatile.
4. Iced Americano
An iced Americano is always among the good coffee spring drinks, as it's so low on calories, tasty, and versatile.
Usually under 10 calories a serving, it consists of 1-2 shots of espresso and water over ice.
You can add in a splash of your favorite milk, a bit of simple syrup, or try some blueberry extract even! If you need an extra energy boost, you can always pour an extra shot of espresso, too.
This is a great option for coffee lovers who don’t need any fluff.
5. Hazelnut Mocha
If you’re a fan of mochas, try a hazelnut twist!
This coffee-based drink includes not only semisweet chocolate along with hazelnut syrup.
Some cafes will add some whipped cream on top, which will add some calories. If you like the combination of coffee and chocolate (and who doesn’t?!), you’ll love this one.
It almost tastes like if you were to mix coffee with Nutella without being overwhelmingly sweet.
At Starbucks, they combine hazelnut syrup, coconut milk, and espresso with a bit of mocha sauce drizzle. This is a great one to try hot or iced!
6. Iced Mandarin Orange Coffee
Who knew that citrus and café went together so well? The tanginess of the citrus combined with the smooth bitterness of coffee is the perfect match.
Citrus and fruits, in general, are perfect for springtime vibes.
The Iced Mandarin Orange Coffee combines cocoa powder, coffee, mandarin orange, cinnamon, and nutmeg over ice and cream.
With syrup made from fresh mandarin oranges, it’s guaranteed to have a well-rounded coffee flavor profile. Some people prefer them stirred while others like the separate layers.
7. Vietnamese Iced Coffee
This drink is so incredibly refreshing and ideal for temperatures heating up! It's so simple, yet offers a different flavor that changes things up.
All that’s in it is coffee, either sweetened condensed milk, regular milk, or evaporated milk, sugar, and ice!
Make sure to mix it up well so that the coffee and cream don't separate.
It does depend on the milk you use, but if you use the traditional sweetened condensed milk, it’s 238 calories per serving.
8. Sea Salt Cream Iced Coffee
Perfectly combining sweet and salty profiles, this spring themed coffee drink is incredibly satisfying and delicious.
This iced coffee (alternatively, you can make it with cold brew) features whipping cream, sea salt, and a bit of sugar to balance out the saltiness.
The whipping cream mixed with the coffee makes it slightly thick and rich, and the slight bit of salt with the smooth cream really makes for a craving-worthy drink that you'll want to have all the time.
9. Rose Cappuccino
Not to be confused with Cappuccino Roses, this beverage is a modern-day classic.
Once again staying with that floral/spring theme, the rose cappuccino is a special drink with an incredible scent, as you can imagine!
The trick to this drink is the inclusion of rose water.
Mixing rose water with milk and light espresso, with perhaps a bit of simple syrup or white chocolate flakes, is an incredible treat you'll want to drink all season long.
Don't worry; it's nothing like drinking flowers or something – the rose water has just enough "rose" to offer complexity.
10. Irish Iced Coffee
If you are looking for a drink you can drink for any meal (or dessert!), the Irish Iced Coffee should be on your list.
This one is made by shaking up some intense coffee with simple syrup, whiskey, and heavy cream.
Make sure it’s well-shaken because it does tend to separate with the alcohol, acid, and cream. You can make this one with cold brew or even make coffee ice cubes!
If you want to really spoil yourself and your guests, add a dollop of whipped cream on top!
