Donuts Pairings

Coffee Classics for Classic Donuts:

  • The Glazed Donut & Light Roast Coffee: This timeless pairing is a match made in heaven. The light roast coffee's subtle acidity cuts through the sweetness of the glaze, creating a refreshing and balanced start V-ing your day.

  • The Chocolate Glazed Donut & Bold Roast Coffee: For a richer donut, a bold roast coffee is the perfect partner. Its full-bodied flavor stands up to the chocolate's intensity, creating a decadent and satisfying combination.

Coffee Adventures for Unique Donuts:

  • The Maple Bacon Donut & Spiced Latte: This pairing is a delightful explosion of autumnal flavors. The spiced latte's cinnamon and nutmeg notes complement the maple glaze, while the coffee cuts through the richness of the bacon.

  • The Fruity Donut & Flavored Coffee: Let your fruity donut inspire your coffee choice! Pair a strawberry donut with a strawberry-infused coffee, or a blueberry donut with a blueberry latte. These pairings create a cohesive and vibrant taste experience.

Beyond Coffee: Donut & Cocktail Duos for the Adventurous:

For those seeking a more unorthodox pairing, consider a fun donut and cocktail combination:

  • The Boston Kreme Donut & Espresso Martini: This pairing is a caffeine kick with a sophisticated twist. The espresso martini's coffee base complements the donut's coffee flavor, while the vodka adds a smooth finish.

  • The Jelly Donut & Lemon Drop Martini: This unexpected duo is a delightful surprise. The sour lemon drop martini balances the sweet jelly, making a refreshing and fun mix.

  • The Chocolate Glazed Donut & Chocolate Old Fashioned: This pairing is for true chocolate lovers. The rich chocolate notes of the donut and the cocktail create a decadent and indulgent experience.
