This has been a big hit with my official taste-testing group located in the DLM support staff office. We have our Blackberry Iced Chai shaken with Snowville Creamery Milk that’s been spiked with Monin Blackberry syrup for the win.

Dreamsicle (center): Next up is something that dreams are made of. That’s right—you may think you’re dreaming with the first sip of the Dreamsicle. It’s a blended bev available in orange, strawberry, or peach. And get this—there’s no coffee or tea in this one, so let your inner child run wild as we’ve also topped it with sprinkles and whipped cream.

LemonTea Shakeup (right): Summer is ripe for enjoying a refreshing glass of iced tea, and our LemonTea Shakeup fits the bill. We pep up organic lemonade with iced tea—choose from a tea base of black, green, or naturally caffeine-free hibiscus berry—and then select a flavor for your LemonTea Shakeup, such as raspberry, blackberry, gingerpeach, or passion fruit-coconut. My favorite is the hibiscus berry tea with passion fruit-coconut. Yum!

3 DIY Cold Brew Recipe Ideas

All of these are awesome, but if you are into DIY, we’ve got you covered, too. Snag a glass growler and our baristas at the DLM Coffee Bar will fill it with our Cold Brew Concentrate. It’s super buzzy as it’s made with 1 pound of coffee to 1 gallon of water. Slug that baby home and give some of these DIY Cold Brew creations a try. Feel free to dilute the cold brew as you see fit if you want to sleep tonight, or enjoy as-is, black as midnight on a moon-less night.
