We found a summery upgrade for your favorite drinks

The sun is shining and iced coffee is socially acceptable to be drinking again (although chilly winter temps never stopped us, tbh). Not just any old iced coffee, though. This season, we're sipping on flavorful fusions, featuring your go-to drinks. Get ready to give your fave beverages some summery upgrades. 

1. Iced lavender latte


All you need to make your lavender haze latte dreams a reality are lavender syrup (buy some or make your own!), your milk of choice (we like oat) and an espresso shot or two (or regular brewed coffee). Mix the milk and coffee together until it's your desired shade and slowly add in your lavender syrup—one teaspoon at a time until it's your desired taste.

2. Green tea lemonade


Another short ingredient list! Simply brew green tea and stick it in the fridge overnight (make sure it's your desired strength and remove the tea bags before it goes in the fridge!). Fill your container of choice about 3/4 of the way. The next day, pour lemonade to fill the remaining 1/4 of the container. 

3. Iced strawberry matcha latte


This recipe is the most complicated summer drink upgrade. Basically, though, you're just mixing strawberry milk (homemade, in this case) with matcha. Grab your milk of choice, strawberry jam, vanilla, matcha and honey. Follow this recipe and you'll be sipping on this splendid strawberry sensation in no time.
