We’re so predictable. “We” meaning every single person that chooses to live in the Midwest. The forecast climbs above 50° and our whole outlook on life changes. We’re so cheerful! So optimistic! So full of life and energy! Ready for new adventures!
There are worse things to be than a little basic when it comes to the joys of Spring. Truly, our area is about to get more beautiful than we remembered, because after this long, grey winter, we have completely forgotten that the world can be green. 😂
Our Spring Drink Menu highlights some of those delicate, fresh flavors iconic to this special season – blueberries, lavender, sweet tea, irish cream, a little spice and sunshine! Keep scrolling to find a drink to fuel your next adventure.
Oatmeal Cookie Latte
You didn’t think we could make a menu without including something a little warm + cozy, right? After all, we still live in Central Illinois, where freezing nighttime temps are a very real spring occurrence! Luckily, this caramel, brown sugar, cinnamon, and Irish cream creation is perfect as a hot latte (especially with oat milk!). Or if temps start rising and you’re looking to cool down, try it as an iced latte or frappe!
Blueberry Cobbler Latte
White chocolate + French vanilla play so well with blueberry in this delightful specialty latte. It’s topped with whipped cream and crunchy cinnamon sugar, just like the warmest streusel-topped cobbler straight from the oven! We recommend it as an iced latte to sip all Spring, but it can be ordered as a hot latte or frappe as well.
Equinox Cold Brew
Equinox: that perfect balance of night and day, and it only happens twice a year. Thank goodness you can sip an Equinox Cold Brew a little more often than that. Our signature smooth, cold brewed coffee gets a dose of creamy white chocolate, then topped with a thick crown of Irish cream cold foam + a drizzle of extra caramel. All that sweetness perfectly paired with sharp coffee. Balance.
White Lavender Iced Chai
A barista favorite from the past few Spring seasons, this white chocolate and lavender iced chai latte is just the right balance of florals, sweetness, and spices. Pro tip: this one pairs perfectly with your gardening gloves and some new plants from the local nursery.
Tart and refreshing meets sweet and fruity in this Arnold Palmer. It’s made with blueberry + pomegranate in a glass of our Green Pomegranate iced tea and fresh lemonade for one perfectly sippable drink to take us into warmer weather.
