What's a better way to spend a Thursday than getting free drinks? Getting a taste of a new drink made especially for the upcoming season. Starbucks Canada happy hour deal on March 5 includes the two new spring drinks and it's the perfect excuse to finally try them.

From 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on March 5, you can head into locations across the country and score yourself a free drink when you buy another one.

Your purchase of a grande handcrafted beverage — or larger, if you dare — will get you another one of equal or lesser value free of charge.

So that means you can order basically any beverage except for brewed coffee and tea or bottled drinks and get something else at no cost to you.

If you've been waiting to try the two new drinks off the spring menu, Happy Hour would be a perfect time.

On March 3, the coffee chain introduced two new menu items that might just put you into a sugar coma and in the mood for spring.

First, there's the Cocoa Cloud Macchiato which is practically a cloud in a cup with light and airy foam, espresso, toffee nut syrup topped off with caramel and mocha drizzles.

Then there's the Nitro Cold Brew with salted honey cold foam to get you ready for warmer days.

This new drink is Starbucks' signature cold brew with toasted honey topping on the salted honey cold foam.

Even if you don't want to try out the new spring drinks, you can still get your favourite handcrafted beverages as part of the BOGO deal.

Or you could opt for two dairy-free drinks that launched back in January.

There is the Almondmilk Honey Flat White or the Coconutmilk Latte waiting for you to sip on.

Starbucks Canada has been on a roll since 2020 started, introducing a bunch of new drinks and even a Beyond Meat treat.

The Beyond Meat Cheddar & Egg Sandwich launched on March 3 alongside the spring beverages.

The Happy Hour BOGO deal on March 5 is a great time to get a taste of spring by trying the new seasonal drinks because they won't be around forever.

Both are only available for a limited time while supplies last at cafes across Canada.
