Iced coffee recipe ideas for your menu

Easter Iced Mocha

what could be better than an Easter iced mocha to go? Start with chocolate or caramel syrup, top with ice. Pour over ½ cup of strong cold coffee and ½ cup of milk. Stir or shake together. Top with whipped cream and decorate with smashed Easter egg.

Decaf over ice

For those customers on a caffeine-free health kick, why not offer them a spring decaf iced coffee? Fill a glass with ice. Pour over room temperature decaffeinated coffee and allow the customer to add milk, cream, and sweetener to taste. 

Spring flowers iced coffee

Coffee by its very nature contains floral notes. The lighter the roast, the more acidic, fruity and origin-based flavours you can taste. As a result, coffee works perfectly in a floral combination. Try experimenting with iced coffee and syrup flavours such as lavender and rose. Check out our flavour wheel for inspiration.

Cold brew coffee

The upward trend in cold coffee demand in the UK continues with large-scale chains such as Costa, Starbucks and Cafe Nero adding cold brew to their menus. It is healthy, tasty, versatile and easier to deliver than you might think.

To serve, simply part fill a glass with ice and pour over. A dash of milk or cream will create a mesmerising swirl. 


The Affogato originates in Italy and comes from the word “affogare”, meaning to drown. The Italians know a thing or two about coffee and ice cream, which makes the Affogato a fantastic combination. Hot espresso coffee simply poured over a scoop of high-quality vanilla ice cream or gelato and stirred. What’s not to love? For an indulgent dessert, make affogato at home: pour over a single measure of amaretto and top with whipped cream.
