Spring-inspired sips to try in Indy

If you’re like us and you have at least five beverages in front of you at all times — try swapping one out this season for something a little more festive.

Four different spring-inspired drinks from Blue Mind Coffee

From brightly-colored thirst-quenchers to rose garnishes and names like “XX,” local businesses are springing specialty menus and warm weather favorites on you. Here are six drinks you’ll find us sipping.

Blue Mind Coffee, 646 E. 38th St.
Okay, the spring drink lineup by Blue Mind looks lovely, so we don’t think you can really go wrong. Editor’s pick: Senior City Editor Nicole usually isn’t a matcha girlie, but the sound of a “Sakura Matcha” with orange, brown sugar, and oat milk, topped with cherry blossom coconut cold foam sounds really nice.

Java House, Multiple locations
Spring has sprung at Java House with its spring seasonal drink lineup that’s available March 19-April 26. Editor’s pick: This is the only “Spring Fling” Nicole is looking for — a slightly sweet and refreshing cold brew green tea paired with blueberry lemonade.

Parlor is a pro at creating unique and pretty looking drinks.

Parlor Public House, 600 E. Ohio St., Ste. B
We love a pretty, photo-worthy drink, and the baristas at Parlor Public House know what they’re doing. Editor’s pick: Try the “Weeping Willow,” which is made with butterfly pea flower, pear syrup, popcorn syrup, and pawpaw spritz. You can order it hot or iced.

Quills Coffee, 941 N. Meridian St.
The spring drink menu at Quills features two returning favorites and two brand new beverages, to offer a selection of fruity and unique flavors. Editor’s pick: The “Sundae Morning” includes two of Nicole’s favorite things — cold brew + strawberry.

Neidhammer Coffee Company, 2104 E. Washington St.
Get a taste of spring next time you stop by the east side. Editor’s pick: The “Hummingbird Lotus” looks stunning + combines pineapple and hibiscus for a bright energy boost.

Tinker Coffee, Multiple locations
If you’re downtown or near The AMP, grab a refreshing pick-me-up on your way back to work. Editor’s pick: We love the sound of an espresso lemonade.
