I have been a barista off and on for over two years and I have tried tons of different drinks. Here are some of my go-to orders that are to die for. Also, I love iced coffee so if you see a trend, it’s because its mostly all I drink. But most of the drinks can be made iced, hot or blended and still taste amazing.
ICed white chocolate and cinnamon latte
This is my absolute favorite drink for the holidays. It has the right amount of sweetness and spice from the cinnamon. If you aren’t a huge coffee fan, it is just as good in an iced chai latte.
iced vanilla and lavender latte
You know this one is coming. If you have had this drink, you know how great it is and I bet you even get it with oat milk. It is perfection when it is equal parts in syrup, because you don’t want the lavender to overpower the vanilla. If you get this order, I want to be your friend for sure.
Iced caramel macchiato
A crowd favorite, this drink can never go wrong in my book. Yes, it is “basic” but who cares; it is amazing. It is the right amount of sweet and the layers are so beautiful. It is always a drink to fall back on when you don’t know what you want, and you are next in line.
Dirty iced chai tea latte
This amazing, underrated drink deserves some love. If you love chai but don’t want it to be super sweet try it with an espresso shot. It makes it stronger, so it won’t be as sweet, plus you get more energy.
strawberry Redbull spritzer
I know this isn’t a coffee order, but it hits better than coffee sometimes. This easy drink you can even make at home will get you energized with some fruity flavors. This is a great option for people that love caffeine but not coffee. It is made with any flavor syrup (my favorite is strawberry) with Redbull and heavy cream.
Whether you think these drinks are the best or not, I hope you find a drink that you love and makes your day!
