Refreshing, a boost of energy, and a fruity surprise? This drink combines all of our favorite things at Pax & Beneficia!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 shot of espresso
  • 8 ounce milk of your choice
  • ½  teaspoon of Pax & Beneficia Vanilla Syrup
  • ½ teaspoon of raspberry syrup or pure for a thicker consistency
  • Fresh raspberries optional


  • Start by brewing your espresso. If you don’t have an espresso machine or moka pot, you can opt for strong coffee.
  • Mix your shot of espresso with milk or non-dairy milk.
  • Stir in your P&B vanilla syrup and raspberry flavoring.
  • After stirring all the ingredients together, pour over a glass of ice and enjoy.
  • You can also top it with fresh or frozen raspberries for an extra treat.

Cardamom Spritzer

Two glass with lemonade or mojito cocktail

Cardamom is typically associated with warm drinks as it offers a sweet and spicy flavor profile. However, when paired with the right ingredients, it adds a unique and refreshing flavor to your favorite non-alcoholic summer drinks.

What You’ll Need:

  • 0.5 oz lime juice 
  • 2 teaspoons Pax & Beneficia Cardamom Syrup 
  • 7-8 fresh mint leaves
  • Sanpellegrino Limone & tè


  • Pour the P&B cardamom syrup into a glass.
  • Add the mint and use a muddler or the back of a spoon to muddle the leaves. This will help release the refreshing flavors of the leaves.
  • Fill the glass with ice and top it off with the Sanpellegrino.
  • Mix it well and serve.

Coffee Lemonade

Cold sweet coffee and lemonade drink

This may not sound like a traditional combination, but it’s recently become a fan favorite due to its bold and tangy flavor. Some compare it to the modern Arnold Palmer, with the only difference being that we use coffee instead of tea.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup of store-bought or homemade lemonade
  • 1 cup of your favorite Pax & Beneficia coffee
  • Splash of sparkling water (optional)


  • Fill a glass with ice and fill it with equal parts lemonade and coffee.
  • If you choose to add sparkling water for a little fizz, you can also add it at this time.
  • Stir and enjoy!
  • With this recipe, feel free to experiment with the measurements. Some people like a sweeter taste (more lemonade), while others want to double up on caffeine (a higher coffee ratio). You get to decide the ratio for this refreshing non-alcoholic summer drink!

Lemon Lavender Sweet Tea

Iced tea with lemon

And there’s no such thing as a Texas summer without a refreshing sweet tea. If you prefer unsweet tea, you can use the same summer drink recipe but substitute the type of tea you use.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 teaspoons Pax & Beneficia Lavender Syrup
  • 1 cup of sweet or unsweetened tea
  • 1 fresh lemon


  • Fill your glass with ice and squeeze fresh lemon juice into the cup.
  • Pour the P&B syrup and tea into the cup.
  • Mix well and enjoy.
