Tropical Lemonades - May Featured Beverages

Let’s talk lemonades, those tangy, sweet, refreshing beverages full of endless variations and possibilities. Everyone has their favorite, whether it be grandmas’ recipe or their own spin of the classic.

No matter what the recipe calls for, lemonade is meant to provide that rush of relief you need to beat the heat. At Dilworth Coffee we have created a way to cut down on some of the labor involved to execute these tropical lemonades at your shop this summer, or all year.

When on the topic of lemonade, we wanted something that would take us back to travels and places where we have enjoyed both lemonade and coffee, so of course we headed to the tropics.

First up is our spin on cold brew and lemonade with our Tropical Cold Brew Lemonade. If you aren’t sure how to go about brewing your own cold brew, we have the perfect solution for you! Our Dilworth Cold Brew Blend is a special blend of coffee best served cold. We have even simplified the brewing process by prepacking our cold brew blend in Paper Filter Packs for an efficient and tasty brew. This ensures a delicious cold brew every time without the guesswork and cleanup.

Now that your cold brew is ready, let’s add the lemonade! Your lemonade needs to be refreshing and equally as delicious as your Dilworth cold brew to create this perfect coffee cocktail. Torani RFSM Lemonade is a secret weapon in the food service setting, providing that timeless labor of love recipe of water, sugar and lemon juice without the labor cost involved. Just simply pour and serve.

We wanted to give this tropical lemonade a flavor pairing that would complement our lemonade and coffee, while also accounting for the acidity. Torani Mango did just that, its flavor profile reminiscent of a fresh, ripe, and juicy mango.

Flavored lemonades can be a balancing act and part of that balance is keeping the sugar content low while letting your flavors shine. Torani Sugar Free Blue Raspberry provides that vibrant blue hue and classic blue raspberry flavor without too much sweetness.
