Every year, Starbucks brings out a plethora of new flavors just in time for the Christmas season. Many people argue that flavors, in general when correlating to food, have different personalities. What better than to give your zodiac sign a drink for you to enjoy?

WARNING: Some are not sold in the United States.

Aries: Chestnut Praline Latte

Giphy

A down-to-earth nutty flavor allows for your quiet side to sneak through. However, you have enough gusto with your espresso for your big personality. You're very grounded, but can throw some punches when someone questions your integrity. Indulge in this creamy drink to feel unstoppable.

Taurus: Gingerbread Latte

Giphy

A strong flavor that speaks true to your nature, the Gingerbread Latte is all that you need. Mixing well with cream and a dash of nutmeg, you'll sure find the Christmas spirit in this beverage.

Gemini: Eggnog Latte

Giphy

The most controversial sign, there's no drink more perfect to fit you than the Eggnog Latte. One that is heavily debated, whether its good or bad, is much like yourself. However, we all know that you have honest intentions. With a dash of nutmeg to go around, there's no questioning that its good and warm like your soul.

Cancer: Toasted White Mocha

Giphy

A rich drink filled that will enrich your soul. You're very in touch with your feelings and this drink will help you feel merry and bright. White chocolate and caramel will sooth you in your most stressful moments.

Leo: Peppermint Mocha

Giphy

A bold flavor, peppermint and chocolate is an acquired taste. Your confidence sometimes doesn't sit well with others, much like the flavor mix of this drink. But, don't let that deter you. You are a gem and a powerful person.

Virgo: Caramel Brûlée Latte

Giphy

Velvety and full of intent, as you very well are, this latte is masterful and complex. You pay a lot of attention to detail, and you have a powerful purpose. This drink definitely shows that off.

Libra: Hazelnut Mocha

Giphy

This frozen drink is full of attitude with its bold, bittersweet chocolate. You've got sass and uniqueness too, and you may be a little nutty. With a drink that's crazy enough to be drank frozen in the winter... It has to show off your crazy side too.

Scorpio: Christmas Brûlée Latte

Giphy

Sadly, while this drink is only served in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, it still has as much bold and brashness as you do, Scorpio. A shame that you may not get to drink it, but know that with a wonderful mix of eggnog and creme brûlée sauce, it sure packs a punch.

Sagittarius: Salted Caramel Brownie Hot Chocolate 

Giphy

A big dreamer, much like this daydream of a drink. A rich balance between salty and sweet. It definitely isn't for the faint of heart, but you can handle it.

Capricorn: Flat White with Cinnamon Spice 

Giphy

A drink just as sophisticated as you, the flat white is gently mixed with vanilla and espresso and a dash of cinnamon. A drink for royalty, just as you deserve.

Aquarius: Dark Cherry Mocha

Giphy

Often misunderstood, you're a different breed of a creative mind. You're mysterious much like the dark cherry mocha. A drizzled, dark hot chocolate with cherry flavors are perfect to reflect your personality. Drink up, but only if you're in Latin America or the Caribbean.

Pisces: Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha

Giphy

A flavor usually celebrated in cookies, the cranberry white mocha holds some of the same properties. You're a classic and should be praised as such. Let this drink heal you as you heal others.

Everyone has a signature drink, no matter the continent it's on. As long as you're a kind heart and treat everyone with kindness, you have no reason for a bad holiday season. I wish that you are able to drink your counterparts.

But, happy holidays no matter where you are, and remember to spread cheer wherever you go!

Be kind to your baristas, they can make you some pretty great drinks. With the temperature rising and the days getting longer, it's approaching the time to find your summer staple to keep you cool (and caffeinated) over the next few months.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of cold beverages that really hit the spot during the summer months, from espresso drinks to fraps, smoothies, teas and refreshers. As a Starbucks barista, I've had the opportunity to taste most drinks on the menu and receive feedback from customers on the do's and don'ts of cold beverages.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I pulled together some of my favorites to give you, the "Ultimate Starbucks Iced Beverage Bucket List for 2017" that you MUST try this season:

1. Pink Drink

Three words: Basic white girl. If you want a photogenic drink that tastes like a Starburst and makes baristas happy, the Pink Drink is for you. It's a pretty simple beverage... this Strawberry Acai Refresher combined with Coconutmilk is sure to satisfy your hipster needs.

2. Iced White Mocha

This sinfully sweet iced espresso drink is not only one of the most popular beverages on the menu, but sure to wake you up at any time of day. Jazz it up by asking for half white chocolate, half mocha sauce, topped with a mocha drizzle, and you've got yourself an Iced Tuxedo Mocha!

3. Doubleshot on Ice

If nothing else, this quick pick-me-up looks classy while giving you the energy boost you need to get through the day. With two shots of espresso, a bit of milk and classic syrup, this drink is easy to enjoy in little time... it's like a caffeine I.V.!

4. Iced Caramel Machiatto

Surprise, surprise... Caramel Machiattos are actually made with vanilla syrup. Nonetheless, these espresso-topped beverages are absolutely delicious at any time of year, but summer calls for ice! Want to change things up? Ask your barista to make it with half vanilla syrup, half toffee nut syrup to make an Iced Salted Caramel Machiatto!

5. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A sister to the Pink Drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is a fruit juice-blackberry combo that makes for a pretty chilled beverage to enjoy on the go. The caffeine content is minimal, making it a great option for any time of day.


6. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Cold Brew is basically Starbucks' version of a smoother-tasting iced coffee with more caffeine. The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a standard drink topped with vanilla-flavored heavy cream to create a sweet taste and a marbled appearance in the beverage. Want something with flavor, but not in the mood for vanilla? Try the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew!


7. Mango Black Tea Lemonade

The Mango Black Tea Lemonade is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. Iced Teavana tea mixed with mango syrup and lemonade makes for the perfect combination

8. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced Chais - sound so sophisticated, yet so simple to make. If you order this drink, there is a 10/10 chance that your barista will love you for it. Milk mixed with a sweet and spicy chai syrup makes for a classy drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day.


9. Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto

The identifying characteristic that makes a macchiato, well, a macchiato is that the espresso shots are poured on top of the milk and flavoring. Starbucks' Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto is a combination of cinnamon dolce syrup and almondmilk topped with espresso shots, a caramel drizzle and a cinnamon dolce topping to create a delicious dairy-free option in the macchiato family.

10. Sunset Refresher

This secret menu drink is fairly simple to make with a cool lime base, lemonade, lime slices, and ice topped with black tea. When finished, the drink will have an ombré appearance that makes it totally picture-worthy!

11. Iced Caffè Americano

Calling all espresso lovers: Americanos are a Starbucks signature. The drink itself is pretty simple - espresso and water topped with ice, but if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can mix things up with a flavored syrup. This drink is sure to wake you right up, no matter the time of day.

12. Strawberry Lemonade

Want something cold but not feeling coffee or a frap? Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is definitely worth a try! While this drink is not on the menu, most baristas are happy to make it upon request. Just ask for a combination of strawberry flavoring, lemonade, and ice blended together for a slushie-like beverage!

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...

193

In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
