Winter is over. The snowbanks have begun to melt, the frost has begun to thaw and, little by little, flowers have begun to blossom. With the chill air giving way to warmth and the sun showing its face more and more, spring has arrived. With that, we have to celebrate, right? There are plenty of light and delicious drinks to sit outside with in the warm sun and Torani’s here to help! Light and cool drinks are the best palate cleanser after a cold winter and before the warmer summer.

Let’s take a look to see what we have:

Iced Caramel Latte

Classics never go out of style. One of the earliest drinks to feature Torani Syrups was the flavored latte – and one of the most popular flavors to use is the rich and buttery Caramel Syrup.

Raspberry Italian Soda

Raspberry Italian Soda Handcrafted Pouring

The root of Torani is the Italian Soda. Our founders, Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre, brought recipes for flavored syrups from an Italian vacation to San Francisco, added them to carbonated water, and history was made. The original is a wonderful way to get a great start to spring.

We know what you might be thinking – almond and peach in a drink together? Though the pairing is not common, trust us on this. Almonds and peaches are actually in the same family and the sweetness of the peach, combined with the earthy nuttiness of the almonds, goes together in this wonderful spring drink.
