16 Ways to Upgrade Your Iced Coffee

Coffee, let us count the ways we love you. You’re there for us during the late nights and early mornings, and you save our lives when the two collide. Here at Brit + Co HQ, we’re familiar with hectic mornings when we need our coffee STAT. And thanks to those mornings, we know how to treasure the moments when we can sip and savor a specialty coffee creation. We’re super excited now, ’cause iced-coffee season is upon us! And you know we’re not about to let things get boring, so we’ve rounded up some delicious caffeine-loaded sips. Just be prepared to have your roommates and coworkers start asking for a cup once they spot your morning jolt on Instagram.

1. Lavender-Honey Iced Latte: The aroma of lavender, coffee and honey is enough to start our day off on the right foot, but the first sip doesn’t hurt either. (via Offbeat + Inspired)

2. The Wild Child: Whipped cream and sprinkles make everything better. (via Brit + Co)

3. Australian Iced Coffee: With the addition of ice cream, this one is best reserved for an afternoon treat. It’s the perfect reward for getting all of those emails out. (via The Sugar Hit)

4. Caramel Iced Coffee: The sweetness from the caramel, and fact that it won’t get watered down due to coffee ice cubes, make this delectable drink perfect for warm days. (via Waiting on Martha)

5. Cinnamon Iced Coffee: Speaking of coffee cubes, this recipe combines cinnamon, brown sugar, coffee and milk in a frozen coffee cube. All you have to do is add cold milk and enjoy. Genius! (via Bea’s Cookbook)

6. S’mores Iced Coffee: Who says s’mores have to be warm? We’re completely fine with breaking dessert rules when it looks this delicious. (via A Night Owl)

7. Coconut Iced Coffee With Mini Chocolate Glazed Coffee Doughnuts: This coffee/dessert covers all your sugary brunch bases. (via Half Baked Harvest)

8. Creamy Boozy Iced Coffee: Happy hour at home has never looked sweeter. (via Averie Cooks)

9. Mexican Chocolate Almond Milk Iced Coffee Shake: We absolutely heart almond milk and we were sold at Mexican chocolate. (via Baked Bree)

10. Frozen Thai Iced Coffee: This takes a bit more prep work, but it’s the perfect start to a lazy day when you have nowhere to be. (via Girl Versus Dough)

11. Rosewater- and Cardamom-Infused Iced Coffee: Bring in a taste of the Middle East with this floral, spiced sip. With such an interesting flavor combo, this drink will become a regular happening on those busy mornings. (via Brit + Co)

12. Vietnamese Iced Coffee: This one will make you feel like a true barista with a combo of condensed milk and a pour over of fresh-brewed coffee. (via The Sugar Hit)

13. Milk and Honey Iced Coffee: This coffee reminds us of simpler times sitting out on the porch without a care in the world. (via Pinch of Yum)

14. Vanilla Almond Iced Coffee: You’ll never look at basic creamer the same way again after whipping up this vanilla-almond version. (via Hungry Girl por Vida)

15. Fresh Mint Iced Coffee: The fresh mint syrup can last in your fridge all week, which means you can make it in advance and still hit the snooze button. We’re thinking it would also be great in a cocktail once the weekend rolls around. (via How Sweet Eats)

16. Cinnamon Dolce Iced Coffee: Brown sugar is not only perfect for your morning beauty routine, but also a key ingredient for homemade cinnamon-dolce syrup. (via Kitchen Treaty)
