The right drink with your fast food menu is such a mood lifter for your customers! You could be running a small restaurant with limited food options or a large-scale restaurant with 100s of dishes to offer, but your drink options have got to complement your food menu. Your customer could be just out grabbing a bite or in the mood for a fancy date night, the right beverage can enhance the flavour of their meal. It makes it more satisfying and gives you an experience of a wholesome meal. And the best thing about drinks is that they can be either a cocktail, mocktail, milkshake or even a lemonade; the trick is to know what fast food will go with which kind of beverage. That’s what we are going to elaborate here. Let’s dive deep into your favourite fast food and the drinks that you can make within 30 seconds with SWA Artisanal Syrups and served to your customers for increased satisfaction:
A margarita is an excellent choice for those who enjoy a little kick with their meal. While it’s crucial to keep a margarita on your menu, why not try something different and give it a twist for a classic margarita? You can do this by going for our Pineapple-chilli Margarita Mocktail, it’s the perfect blend of the coolness of margarita with the sweet and spicy flavour of Pineapple and chilli. And if you go for the classic margarita, it’s the best accompaniment to spicy foods like tacos, burritos, and nachos. The tartness of the lime and the sweetness of the triple sec help to balance out the heat from the spices, while the tequila adds a pleasant buzz to the experience. If you want to add a lighter version of tequila to your menu, you can always have a cocktail like a daiquiri or a mojito, which also pairs well with Mexican-style fast food.
You’ve got to have something for every kind of customer! In this case, make your drink menu go beyond just alcoholic drinks and even mocktails, and keep it simple with the customers who just can’t go without having a glass of chilled iced tea. And there’s a reason for you to keep iced tea in your drink menu, as it goes with almost every kind of fast food. It not only helps you wash down greasy food like burgers and fries, but it is also a healthier option than soda. The best thing about drinking iced tea? It can be customized! With Swa, you can serve different flavours like Hibiscus, Ginger lemon, passion fruit, orange, peach, and many more! You can also choose to sweeten it with sugar, honey, or other sweeteners, or leave it unsweetened for a more tart flavour. Take their taste buds on a flavoursome ride by adding fruits or herbs for an extra flavour boost to your iced tea.
Whatever drinks you might be serving, you can never go wrong with this one! When it comes to pairing your fast food with a non-alcoholic beverage, this one tops the list, especially during summertime. It’s the most classic non-alcoholic beverage of all time! You can serve this sweet and sour drink to cut through the richness of fast food, or you can drink it on its own for a little more substance than water. Like iced tea, lemonade is highly customizable, with Swa, you can have all sorts of flavours for your lemonade; name a few – fruity, mixed berry, and spicy. You can adjust the sweetness and tartness to your liking. Fresh herbs, such as basil or mint, add a new layer of flavour to lemonade if you’re feeling fancy. With Swa, you can make batches of lemonade and serve as and when ordered, this leads to one less thing on your plate and no more waiting customers.
During summer, customers often prefer something cooler and more refreshing. That’s where cold coffee comes in! A restaurant that serves cold coffee in summer is a hit among customers who love the taste of coffee but want something chilled to beat the heat. And it wins your customer’s heart when coffee is mixed with other flavours, which is possible with our syrups which have a variety of flavours like cocoa orange and cocoa berry. Want to take this a notch higher? Add a dash of vanilla or caramel syrup to give it a sweet twist, or try blending it with ice cream for an indulgent treat. Cold coffee goes best with fast food items as the bitterness of the coffee can cut through the richness of burgers and fries, making for a balanced meal. Plus, there’s something satisfying about sipping on a hot cup of coffee while munching on a breakfast sandwich or a doughnut.
If your customers are chocolate fanatics, then you’ve got to have cocoa mocha on your drink menu. Having some sweet chocolate with a hint of bitter coffee is nothing short of heaven. This beverage is perfect for washing down burgers, fries, and other fast food staples, and is super easy to make – stir the espresso with the syrup, add some milk and stir.
It goes without saying that fast food can be paired with many great drinks, whether you want something alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Your drink menu should have something for everyone, including classic cocktails like margaritas and daiquiris and refreshing beverages like iced tea and lemonade. Keep updating your drink menu with new drinks to keep treating your customers with exciting and refreshing drinks that go along with their food options. The perfect pair of food and drinks give your customer a wholesome meal experience.
