Haaaappy MONDAY! With Memorial Day behind us, doesn’t it feel like summer is in full swing now??? Ah. Pass me a beach and a book and call me a happy camper. 🙂 Let’s chat a few refreshing Starbucks drinks, shall we?
Before hopping right in, to kickoff the work week with vacay on the mind, I’m doing a fun little thing over on my Instastories…I’ll be posting a gift card to my stories when the first picture you see here gets posted to my feed this afternoon. When you see it, hop to my Stories (@ericaligenza) – because Starbs is on me today! 🙂 I figured that would be a fun way to help as many of you as possible try some of my personal favorite refreshing drink orders – because nothing beats a Monday afternoon pickmeup. The gift card will work until it runs out, so pleasepleaseplease only get one drink to treat yo’self and not the whole neighborhood. 😉 Thankyoukindly. And ENJOY!
How each drink is listed is exactly what you need to read to your barista, and they’ll know what to do to make the magic happen.
Starbucks hack: Order everything with light ice! I see so many folks order “heavy ice” and it blows my mind, because Starbucks ain’t cheap, yo! You’re paying for water – insanity! Instead, order light ice, but ask for two cups. You pay the same amount, but literally get double the drink then – and if anythin, you can add more ice at home into your second cup FO’ FREE. Save your bills, get a cake pop instead. 😉
For all of the refreshing Starbucks drinks below, just order them in whatever size you fancy.
1.) Strawberry refresher with green tea instead of water, light ice
I order this on repeat whenever I need a refresh – it truly lives up to its name! It’s the *perfect* degree of sweet – literally chuggable. Ha!
2.) Iced coconut milk mocha macchiato
An iteration of this is on the menu currently – it’s sweeter than a regular coffee or latte, but not overpoweringly so. A good chocolately flavor from the mocha!
3.) Mango passion fruit refresher with coconut milk instead of water
AKA, the Dragon Drink (with a twist). I ordered all five of my faves here to shoot this post, so J + my mama were test subjects to validate my picks. And this was everyone’s favorite option! When it comes to refreshing Starbucks drinks, this one gets 100%. You’ll want this poolside! (Also, HOW PRETTY)
4.) Passion tango tea, no sweetener, 2 pumps of sugar free vanilla, a splash of coconut milk
If you’re a big tea girl, this one’s for you! Definitely the strongest tea flavor of the bunch.
5.) Iced coffee with a pump of raspberry
I heard this recommended by my girl Katey and she said it tasted like a coffee cupcake. And she’s not wrong! If you enjoy flavors but hate how sweet flavored coffee or fancy coffee drinks, you’ll lovelovelove this one. It’s still the same strong coffee flavor, with just a HINT of raspberry (key: only get one pump – I got one pump for my whole venti!).
What’s your favorite refreshing Starbucks drink order for summer?
