The 12 Best Dunkin’ Donuts Drinks:

1. Dunkin’ Espresso

While it may sound a little too simple to be added to a best drinks list, a classic espresso can’t be beaten. That’s especially true when it’s served at Dunkin’ Donuts. The espresso made at Dunkin’ is crafted using dark-roasted Arabica beans. When you need a quick caffeine pick-me-up, this drink is your answer.


2. Dunkin’ Americano

If a classic espresso is a bit much for you, give the Dunkin’ Americano a try. The classic Americano was originally crafted for Americans during World War II. Coffee wasn’t easy to come by and coffee shop owners in Europe quickly learned that most American soldiers weren’t fans of the stronger espresso so they added a bit of water and the Americano was born. At Dunkin’ Donuts, you can order an Americano hot or iced, making it a great drink for those who aren’t fans of espresso.


3. Dunkin’ Caramel Macchiato

The Caramel Macchiato is another drink that can be ordered hot or iced at Dunkin’. This beloved mixture of steamed milk, caramel, and smooth coffee simply can’t be topped. If it’s hot outside, an iced version is a great way to cool down. When that nip of cool weather strikes, a hot Caramel Macchiato can really hit the spot.


4. Dunkin’ Cold Brew

The Dunkin’ Cold Brew is the perfect drink for those who love caffeine but would prefer to stay away from a lot of calories. Made from Arabica beans that are steeped for 12 hours, this drink is smooth, full-bodied, and sweet with its chocolatey flavor. Even those who aren’t fans of cold brew can find themselves loving this drink.


5. Dunkin’ Butter Pecan Swirl

The gang down at Dunkin’ has blended buttery caramel and nutty pecan to make an utterly sweet indulgence of a drink. It’s also topped with a caramel pecan crunch. If you don’t mind a bit of sugar, you’ll love this caffeinated beverage on days when you just aren’t in the mood for tasting the coffee.
