It is no secret to anyone in the Midwest that our weather is as unstable as America's current political climate. It's completely bonkers. One day it is 30 degrees and snowing, the next its 75 degrees and sunny! What gives, people...
Having bipolar weather makes being a basic Starbucks lover sick. I never know what to order, so I usually look to the weather to help me decide. Over the course of 7 days and 7 different weather conditions, here is what I suggest you order!
1. Cold and Rainy - London Fog Latte
Much like the city of London - this latte is perfect for a gloomy day.
2. Blazing hot and humid - Shaken Iced Tea
Shaken tea is so refreshing... and they usually fill the cup over halfway with ice, so you'll have a plenty cold drink and something to crunch on after.
3. Cool and Breezy (perfect jacket weather) - Macchiato
This drink just goes with the flow, so You can get this hot or cold, whatever you feel like. My new favorite is the cinnamon almond milk iced macchiato.
4. Windy AF - Bottled Teavana Tea
The reason you want this drink is that... it. has. a. lid. It's also pretty tasty.
5. Blizzard - White Chocolate Mocha
6. Sunny and 75 - Frappuccino
Any Frappuccino tastes delicious sitting outside. The website doesn't specifically state this, but I'm pretty sure they want you to lay in a hammock while you drink it.
7. Changing throughout the day - Coffee
The GOAT of Starbucks. Start off with a hot coffee in a reusable cup and if it gets hot out, just add ice! I know. Stroke of genius.
The good news is that you can count on Starbucks, even if you can't count on the weather
