17 Starbucks Combos to Tickle Your Tastebuds ...

By Lyndsie

So, confession time: Heather is the only reason I know anything about Starbucks. I would never drink it if she didn't love it just because ordering a drink there makes me nervous as hell. What? I'm an introvert. Starbucks baristas make me feel anxious. But anyway! The point is that for as wide and varied as the menu is already, there's a world of drink combinations you can ask for, too. Or, alternately, you can ask a loved one to do it for you!

1 Butterbeer Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
1-2 pumps of caramel syrup
1-2 pumps of toffee nut syrup
Caramel drizzle on top

This one's for my Harry Potter fans! It's remarkably like Butterbeer. It'll make you feel like you're sitting in the Three Broomsticks, anyway.

2 Tootsie Roll Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Valencia Orange Refresher to the first indent on the cup, milk to the first line
Add mocha syrup (2 pumps tall, 3 grande, 4 venti)
Add vanilla syrup (1 pump tall, 2 grande and venti)
Add creme base (2 pumps tall, 3 grande, 4 venti)

This one's a little complicated, but from what I hear, it's worth it. If you like Tootsie Rolls, that is.

3 Strawberry Limeade

What to ask for:
Strawberry Açai refresher to bottom line, no water, ½ lime refresher and ½ lemonade to the second line, add ice, and shake

Heather loves this one, and it's definitely refreshing on hot days – or on days when you really just want to think about summer.

4 Christmas Cookie Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
1-2 pumps peppermint syrup
1-2 pumps toffee nut syrup
Top with caramel drizzle and raw sugar if desired

Who says you have to wait until Christmas to enjoy a peppermint infused coffee?

5 Cake Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Extra almond flavoring in a Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino

Easy, right? And delicious. Just like a cake batter … something or other. Milkshake, I guess, I don't know.

6 Honey Nut Macchiato

What to ask for:
Caramel Macchiato
Sub vanilla syrup for chestnut praline syrup
Top with a packet or two of honey depending on size

This is surprisingly delicious. You should absolutely top it with a little honey.

7 Pink Raspberry Passion

What to ask for:
Start with a Passion Iced Tea (or Black Iced Tea if preferred)
Add raspberry syrup (2 pumps tall, 3 pumps grande, 4 pumps venti)
Blend like a frappuccino, top with whipped cream

If you like fruity drinks, you'll love this one. Very, very pink.

8 Mango Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, made with one less scoop of vanilla bean powder
Add mango syrup (3 pumps tall, 4 venti, 5 grande)

This is a fantastic fruity pick, too. The mango syrup makes it super refreshing.

9 S'mores Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Java Chip Frappuccino
1 pump cinnamon dolce syrup
1 pump toffee nut syrup
Whipped cream blended in and on top

This drink will make you think of campfires and summer nights. It may also give you a sugar rush.

10 Green Eye

What to ask for:
A Caffe Americano with 3 extra shots of Espresso

I've never tried this myself … but I'm kind of intrigued.

11 Blended Strawberry Lemonade

What to ask for:
A Blend of Lemonade and strawberry flavors (make sure to ask for it blended!)

Heather gets this quite often, too. She loves it! I've tasted hers and this drink is kind of tops.

12 Caramel Snickerdoodle Macchiato

What to ask for:
Iced Soy Caramel Macchiato (upside-down)
1-2 pumps vanilla syrup
1-2 pumps cinnamon dolce syrup

After you sip on this, you're going to want some real Snickerdoodles. Forewarning.

13 French Vanilla Frappuccino

What to ask for:
A Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
1-2 pumps vanilla syrup
1-2 pumps hazelnut syrup
Caramel drizzle

This is delicious. Epic. Scrumptious.

14 Twix Frappuccino

Twix FrappuccinoWhat to ask for:
Caramel Frappuccino
1-2 pumps caramel syrup
1-2 pumps hazelnut syrup
Java chips, caramel and mocha drizzle

I haven't tried this yet, either, but it sounds amazing. Then again, I go nuts for Twix.

15 Teddy Graham Frappuccino

What to ask for:
Coffee Frappuccino
1 pump cinnamon dolce syrup
1 pump vanilla syrup
Honey

Teddy Grahams! Teddy Grahams, you guys, this tastes like Teddy Grahams!

16 The Bleeding Penguin

What to ask for:
A vanilla/chocolate frappe with raspberry shot

That is just … a horrible name.

17 Love on the Rocks Refresher

What to ask for:
Berry Hibiscus Refresher (without the blackberries)
Replace the water with apple juice
Add raspberry syrup (1 pump tall, 2 grande, 3 venti, 4 trenta)
Top with a splash of Passion Iced Tea

This is a whole lotta drink.
