With as much as I enjoy going out for coffee, it was easy to become a cafe regular with a regular order. But, eventually taste buds get bored. I never thought I would have “to many” Iced Americanos, but I did.
To get some new drink inspiration, I took to Instagram. I posted a simple Q&A poll with the question: “What’s your favorite Starbucks order?”.
I received so many unique responses. To my surprise, there wasn’t one customization or drink the same. I decided to commit my next few Starbucks runs to trying follower drinks. It was time to break out of my comfort zone and find some new favorites.
The first drink I tried was @ruby_mundok ‘s. She orders a Peach Green Tea Lemonade with Classic Sweetener.
I assumed I’d enjoy this drink. I love a good iced tea, and Starbucks Peach inclusion is delicious. I am happy to say it turned out to be as refreshing as I imagined. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a fun summer drink.
The next drink I tried was @itsashleykramer ‘s: a Cold Brew with Dark Cocoa Almond Milk Foam.
This drink was a pretty recent addition to the Starbucks menu. I was definitely curious about it before, so I am glad I got the push to order it. The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous layers of the drink. After sipping, I was able to confirm that its taste lived up to its presentation. If you enjoy a cold brew with just a touch of sweetener this drink is for you.
On another Starbucks run, I decided to order @katesmovingmountains ‘ regular. She gets a Mango Dragonfruit Refresher with Lemonade and no ice. Also, she likes to add on a Marshmallow Dream Bar.
This was another new-to-me order. I really enjoyed the refresher; it had a kick of tartness, but just enough sweetness too. The Marshmallow Dream Bar was such a treat! It felt so light and cloud-like. I’d recommend this order combo to anyone craving a snack on the go.
Last but certainly not least, I received some follower suggestions of drinks that I have already ordered and loved too! For your enjoyment, here they are:
–Iced Green Tea Matcha Latte from @yaymeli.m
–Iced Carmel Macchiato with Soy Milk from @asantemarie
–Pink Drink from @anthonycattani
–Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew with Extra Vanilla from @katie.graace
–Iced Black Tea Lemonade from @catelynpicco
I hope this can inspire all of us to expand our personal Starbucks’ menus. I know mine has a few new additions. Thank you to everyone who participated in my poll and shared their favorites!
