Tim Hortons Drink Hacks
There are almost as many drink hacks on the Tim Hortons secret menu as there are on the Jamba Juice secret menu, although maybe not quite as many as there are on the Starbucks secret menu. The Tim Hortons secret menu is one of our biggest, which is why we have broken it up into many pages. There are Bagel Hacks, Recipes and drink hacks, and it’s the latter of those that we will look at in more detail here.
So, it’s time to revamp your morning tea or coffee and to look at those iced drinks and soft drinks from a new perspective.
Tim Hortons Tea Combos
There are a number of tea flavors to choose from at Tim Hortons. But you don’t have to stop with the flavors on the menu. You can also mix them up. You pay around $0.10 for an extra tea bag, so don’t worry about price and go crazy.
Some of our favorite mixtures include a Chamomile Herbal with a Honey Lemon Herbal. This helps to add some sweetness to the fragrant chamomile flowers and is a great way to wind down on an evening.
A little Apple Cinnamon also works wonders in their English Breakfast, and if you drip that English Breakfast into their Chai Tea, then you can add some extra strength and extra caffeine to that spicy drink. Green Tea and Peppermint also works well. It’s aromatic, it’s sharp and it’s great for digestion.
Many customers have even added tea bags to coffee and hot chocolate, singing the praises of combinations like White Hot Chocolate and Chai Tea, among others.
If you to cut costs and don’t want to drop a couple of dollars on what is essentially hot water and a 5 cent tea bag, then just bring your own bags. You can then ask for a cup of hot water. In most cases, they will give you this for free, especially if you have ordered some food on the side. If not, you’ll only be charged a few cents.
Iced Cappuccino Hacks
The Iced Capp is one of the most popular drinks at Tim Hortons, and there are a number of ways you can make this a little bit more interesting. The first is just to ask for some extra whipped cream on top. You can also opt for some chocolate whipped cream instead.
The second is to ask for a shot of mint flavoring. They can add this to any drink you want, and it works really well in the Iced Capp. It adds a refreshing punch that makes for a great pick-me-up and cuts through the strong coffee flavors.
If you prefer things a little creamier and a little sweeter, ask for some chocolate milk in your Iced Capp. If they use this instead of normal milk, you’ll get something that tastes like a cross between a chocolate milkshake and coffee. Add a sprinkle of powdered chocolate and a squirt of whipped cream, and you have liquid Tiramisu.
Rock Bottom Mocha
If you begrudge spending $5 on a Mocha from Starbucks, then you can get a cheap alternative that tastes just as nice at Tim Hortons. There are two ways that you can do this. The first is to order a drink that is a combination of chocolate milk and coffee. You can mix these two drinks to taste, but most people prefer a 50/50 split.
The other method is to get a drink that is half hot chocolate and half coffee. Again, you can mix this to taste, playing around with the recipe. You’ll only pay for a single cup of cheap coffee, which means you can shave a few bucks off what you would usually pay for this drink.
And don’t forget, you can get some whipped cream topping on any of the Tim Hortons drinks. So, feel free to add a little squirt or two to liven up your bargain-basement mocha.
Homemade Iced Tea
Not in the mood for a hot cup of tea but still want the caffeine fix and the flavor? Just make your own iced tea. There are iced teas available, but it’s often cheaper to make your own. You can also better regulate the flavor and the sweetness this way.
Just ask for a cup of cold ice water, grab a tea bag of your choice and combine the two. If you order food and ask politely, then you might be able to get the water for nothing. And as mentioned above, you won’t pay more than 10 cents for the teabag. So, with a simple request, 10 cents, and some packets of free sugar, you can make your own iced tea.
