Starbucks is the most well known coffee shop, and it is for a good reason! They offer various flavored drinks to match any taste pallet and are refreshing to have, especially during the summer. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite drinks just for you so that you can experience the taste of summer. For cozy drink suggestions, you can check out my post on Best Summer Starbucks Drinks.
This summer, drive-through’s are almost always packed with a line out the door. I’ll never pass up a trip to Starbucks, but Starbucks isn’t a place where I stay. I usually stop by while I’m on my way somewhere or passing through. They do, however, create a welcoming atmosphere to those who wish to stay and get work done. When stopping by quickly, it is convenient to have a drink that is easy to order. Which brings me to drink #1.
1.) Berry Hibiscus with Mango and Dragonfruit
Long name, I know. But this drink is SO GOOD! Add this drink to your list, especially for a cold drink used as a wake up call in the early morning. If your already awake, this drink can also help to keep you energized throughout the day with its sweet and exotic flavor. For those of you who love fruit in your drinks, you can order strawberries and/or blackberries in this one for added taste.
2.) Strawberry Açaí Refresher
This drink is a go-to order for several of my friends. The strawberry açaí refresher is similar to the pink drink, but tastes a little different and has less protein (because of the lack of coconut milk.) It is still a wonderful drink to have on a hot summer day. It reminds me of lemonade, in a way.
3.) Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink
This is a new drink, so it’s a little on the pricier side, even for Starbucks. I tried this recently, and I loved it. I think it might be my new favorite! The IGP drink also tastes similar to the pink drink, but has a more robust fruity flavor and is more energizing.
4.) Pink Drink
The pink drink was all the craze last summer, and it still hasn’t lost its fame. If I’m not mistaken, it was on the Starbucks secret menu at one point in time. If it’s still there, it’s secrecy has been leaked. I think it is one of the most popular Starbucks drinks out there! While it is fruity and sweet, there is coconut milk in it, which adds protein and something a little extra to the drink. It might not be the healthiest thing in the world, but I like to order this drink after a run sometimes.
5.) Iced Coffee with White Mocha and Cream
I, myself am not at all a coffee drinker. In fact, I’d choose almost anything over coffee. I’m more of a frappuccino/refresher kind of girl, but I know that favorite flavors certainly differ. This drink was recommended by one of my friends who loves coffee, and I think that iced coffee is more of a summer drink than warm coffee. Since I’ve never personally had this drink, I can’t tell you much about the flavor, but if you like sugary drink of mocha, then I’d say that this one is probably for you. If you want to try a hot drink with a similar flavor, or would like similar suggestions, check out my blog post on Best Autumn Starbucks Drinks.
That’s all! Hopefully I helped to narrow down your order choices for the next time you stop by Starbucks! I’ll see you next week!
