While you may have a usual selection of beverages that you offer at your hospital food service facility, sometimes switching up the menu with fun seasonal options can be a great way to boost customer and patient satisfaction. Here are three delicious summertime drinks that are sure to be a hit with your patrons.
1. Flavorful iced tea
Nothing helps beat the heat like a cool glass of iced tea. Along with the standard unsweetened variety, consider offering your customers other delicious options like lemon, peach, raspberry and honey green tea. These frosty beverages are just the thing for kicking back in the summer.
2. Lemonade by the pitcher
In addition to iced tea, lemonade is one of the summer season’s prime beverages. You should consider offering the classic tart variety along with other variations like pink lemonade, virgin lemonade or even limeade. When mixed with some iced tea, lemonade can help make a delicious half and half as well.
3. Nutritious fruit smoothies
With a blender, some orange juice and a batch of frozen fruit, you can start whipping up tasty fruit smoothies for your patrons to enjoy. Not only are smoothies a delicious alternative to milkshakes, but they’re loaded with vitamins and nutrients that can help give dietary health a boost.
