Summer and Starbucks are two of my favorite things and when you combine them both? You've got me! I actually drive about 20 minutes out of my way to go to Starbucks on my way to the office, the drinks are THAT good (and I go about four times a week). So, I'm an expert on everything Starbucks and below are some of my fave, fave drinks, all of which I – personally - have had!
1. Affogato-Style Frappuccino
Now, I am a huge Starbucks fan and I was a little iffy on trying this particular drink, but when I did it with my typical caramel frap? It was amazing! Basically, you have your normal frappuccino and you then have espresso poured over it. It does add in another layer of coffee, which can have some bitter notes, but truth be told, it is pretty damn good.
Okay y'all, have you heard of this drink? It has TAKEN OVER Instagram as we know it and it is actually pretty delish. Have you tried it? It's a mixture of Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk. It is the drink for the summer and you all have to try it. No, seriously, try it. Run out to Starbucks right now.
3. Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino
I had NO idea what was in store for this particular drink when I ordered it for the first time and now? I love it! The dark caramel makes this drink super complex and I love it. It is so good and it is perfect for all of those hot, hot days of summer.
4. Cherry Blossom Frappuccino
What is this? No, seriously, what IS this drink? A blend of sweet strawberries and cream with white chocolate sauce and matcha drizzle, topped with whipped cream and a sprinkle of matcha. How delicious does that sound? Now, this particular drink was around for a little while, not too long (5 days actually), but you can still order it.
5. Teavana Shaken Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade
Where in the world has this been all of my life? Seriously? I live – LIVE for tea and lemonade combinations and this one is no exception. When I found out about this particular concoction, I almost peed. I love it! It tastes sweet yet tangy and is the perfect summer drink.
6. Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino
Are you on the matcha green tea train? It's very on-trend right now. Basically, this drink is matcha green tea, milk and ice and topped with sweetened whipped cream. How good does that sound? Amazinggggg right?
7. Strawberry Lemonade Tea
Okay, so this one needs to have 'blended' before it, that's how I drink it and it is so good. Not only is it super crisp and refreshing, but it tastes amazing. No matter if you want a small, short little pick-me-up or you want something a little sweeter, this is the drink for you!
