  1. Iced Latte: The iced latte is a classic and refreshing coffee drink that's perfect for beating the summer heat. It's essential to use fresh coffee to maintain the best flavor. To prepare it, simply chill a single shot of espresso or ristretto, add a cube of ice, and pour milk over it. Voilà! An iced latte is ready to cool your senses.

  2. Iced Chai: For those seeking a spiced delight, the iced chai is a fantastic option. You can use either chai powder or chai syrup, ensuring it's nicely chilled before preparation. Pour it over ice and top it up with milk, and you have a creamy and aromatic iced chai to savor.

  3. Iced Turmeric: An unconventional yet intriguing choice, the iced turmeric drink is a point of difference that can elevate your café's uniqueness. Use Alchemy's golden turmeric blend, a favorite among customers, and serve it chilled for a refreshing summer beverage.

  4. Cold Brew: Cold brew is a must-have on any cold drinks menu. Its smooth and mellow flavor is achieved by preparing it in advance. You can experiment with various brewing devices to find your perfect cold brew recipe.

  5. Iced Long Black: Confused about the difference between an iced long black and an iced coffee? The iced long black is simply a long black coffee poured over ice, giving you a delightful coffee experience without diluting the flavor.

  6. Affogato: Looking for a coffee-based dessert? The affogato is the perfect answer. Pour a double shot of espresso over a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream for an indulgent and decadent treat.

  7. Iced Mocha: Combining the best of both worlds – coffee and chocolate – the iced mocha is a heavenly concoction. Start with a double shot of espresso over ice, add milk, and then drizzle chocolate syrup over the top for an irresistible finish.

  8. Iced Chocolate: For chocolate lovers who want to skip the coffee, the iced chocolate is a delightful option. Simply drizzle chocolate syrup all over the ice before adding chilled milk. A heavenly chocolate experience awaits.

  9. Coffee Frappe: The coffee frappe is a creamy and frothy delight that offers a delightful coffee experience with a bit of a twist. Perfect for hot summer days, it's a great addition to any café menu.

  10. Iced Tea Varieties: Of course, coffee isn't the only option for cold drinks. You can also offer a range of iced teas, from classic black tea to fruity herbal infusions, to cater to non-coffee drinkers or those seeking a caffeine-free alternative.

Remember, presentation is just as important as taste when it comes to cold drinks. Serve these cold creations in attractive glassware, and consider adding tasting cards to enhance the customer experience.

So, whether you're a barista perfecting your cold coffee skills or a café owner seeking to refresh your menu, these top ten cold drinks are sure to impress your customers and keep them coming back for more. Stay cool, enjoy the summer, and have a great time experimenting with these fantastic cold beverages!
