Spring kicked off back on March 20th, and one question I have for you is….
What spring drink is in your cup?
Drink trends can change based on the year but also based on the season. The popularity of seasonal drinks is usually crafted to taste with what goes well with the weather.
Have you noticed there are particular beers that are referred to as “summer beers” or even some restaurants have a specific cocktail menu that pertains to that particular season, such as the Springtime Sips menu at Applebee’s?
In fact, Starbucks launched a new spring drink called Iced Toasted Vanilla Oat Shaken Espresso, along with a few other spring drinks for a limited time. If you are a Starbucks lover, check out this Top 10 Spring Drinks, created by students from Baylor University.

Snow Cones as a Spring Drink Choice:
At Son Beverage Company, we know when spring is just around the corner because Jell-Craft snow cone syrup and Lemonade orders start rolling in. People start to gear up for the warmer weather so they can have a sweet treat on hand. Even though snow cone syrups aren’t necessarily a beverage, they still count as a delicious spring treat to have with popular flavors being coconut, cherry, pineapple, and strawberry.
But did you know that each Jell-Craft
sno-cone syrup can be made into a delicious beverage by adding water, sparkling water, or soda to it?
One of the most popular ways to use Jell-Craft’s Coconut Sno-Cone Syrup is by making Sonic’s Copycat Ocean Water. Get creative and combine Jell-Craft’s Strawberry Sno-Cone Syrup with their Old-Fashioned Lemonade Concentrate for Strawberry Lemonade (recipe here).
