These are the Starbucks drinks should you order this summer



Summer drinks that you should order this summer, enjoy.

As a Starbucks barista, I have seen the highs and lows of “secret menu” items throughout the couple of years that I have worked there. I wanted to share a couple of fan-favorite summer drinks to order, that won’t break the bank.

The first drink that I would recommend would be an *insert size* black iced tea with strawberry acai. This is how I would order it.

“Hi, could I get an *insert size* black iced tea with no water, sub strawberry acai, and 2 pumps of your liquid cane sugar?”

This drink is super refreshing and always hits the spot. It has the perfect amount of caffeine so you won’t be bouncing off the walls, and you won’t be falling asleep while you enjoy your summer.

The second drink that I would recommend for you this summer would be our blended strawberry lemonades. This drink is actually on the menu but not a lot of people know about it. It is made with our strawberry puree and lemonade. I always get it if I am looking for something sweet but doesn’t have any caffeine. This is how you would order it.

The third drink that I recommend is a dragon drink with peach juice. This drink tastes like something you would order in Mexico. It has all the perfect summer flavors that I look for. Its mango, coconut, and peach. What a perfect trio. You can get this with the berries or without the berries, whatever you are feeling. This is how I would order it.

The fourth drink that I will be sharing with you is one of my favorite shaken espresso drinks that we can make at Starbucks. It is a brown sugar oatmilk shaken espresso with 2 pumps of white mocha. If you get a grande size in this drink it has 3 shots of our signature blonde espresso which gives this drink a little bit more sweetness compared to using our regular espresso. Keep in mind though, if you do get a venti it comes with 4 shots of espresso. So if you’re looking to wake up and have energy all day this is an amazing drink to order. This is how I would order it.

The fifth drink that I always get when I’m looking for a ton of caffeine is a white chocolate raspberry shaken espresso. I know what you’re thinking, but believe me, it is amazing. I’ve never been a huge fan of our raspberry syrup but paired with our blonde espresso and our white mocha it’ll be a drink that you will always come back to. This is how I order the drink.

“Hi, could I get an *insert size* iced shaken espresso with blonde espresso, no classic, with half white mocha, half raspberry, and sub the milk for sweet cream?”

The sixth and last coffee drink that I recommend getting this summer is a cold brew with white mocha, toffee nut, and sweet cream cold foam. This drink is a sweet treat for our coffee lovers. I always make this drink for customers that ask for something that is sweet but still tastes like coffee. My rule of thumb is that you never know what to get in your coffee, toffee nut, and white mocha is always a good choice. This is how I order this drink.

“Hi, could I get an *insert size* cold brew with half white mocha, half toffee nut, with vanilla sweet cream foam?”

Enjoy your drinks this summer and don’t be afraid to ask your barista to make a “surprise me drink” if you don’t know what to get.
