Spring Coffee Punch

  • Illustrated interpretation of the Spring Coffee Punch. It's in a tall glass with a straw and there are blueberries and a lemon.

If cold brew coffee is your go-to, switch it up with this refreshing creation. Milk clarification is a classic cocktail technique that works really well with coffee. To clarify milk, an acidic ingredient is used to curdle milk, separating it into curds and whey. It makes for a sweet, citrusy, and silky drink that isn't too heavy or creamy.  

This coffee punch recipe is a favorite because it's lemon-y, refreshing, and you can serve up a big batch!

Spring Coffee Punch Recipe



  1. Muddle together sugar and lemon zest in a punch bowl.
  2. Add coffee to the zest and sugar mix and stir until incorporated. 
  3. Whisk in the lemon juice.
  4. Pour in the milk and stir as curds begin to form.
  5. Let the mix sit for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Strain the mixture through a large coffee filter (or cheesecloth) set inside a fine mesh strainer above a large bowl. Repeat. Note: You can repeat more than twice for a more filtered/clearer punch. Be sure to change the filter each time.
