My 6 Go-To Starbucks Orders

Because, sometimes, ordering at Starbucks can be a little intimidating.


Have you ever gone to Starbucks and stared at the menu without a clue as to what sounds good or what you would like? When I first started frequenting the local Starbucks, I had to just experiment with drinks to discover what I liked best. After trying all kinds of coffees and refreshers, here is a list of my 6 go-to orders.

Strawberry Acai Refresher

As cheesy as it sounds, this drink is so gosh-darn refreshing. It's perfect in the summer...or the spring, fall, and winter if I'm being honest. It has an amazing strawberry flavor and can be a good choice if you aren't a coffee lover but still want to be a part of the Starbucks world. I personally like to order mine "made with lemonade", but it's delicious in its traditional form as well.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

For the longest time, my best friend always ordered these, and I refused to ever try it. One day when I was feeling adventurous, I went for it and instantly fell in love. Not only is an iced caramel macchiato very aesthetically pleasing, it also happens to taste phenomenal. If you aren't a huge fan of a strong coffee flavor, try ordering it with a few extra pumps of vanilla. Also (fun fact), caramel macchiatos are actually made with vanilla syrup but just have caramel drizzle on top.

Passion Tea Lemonade

This actually happens to be what I'm drinking as I type this article. The passion tea alone is good, but I like to mix lemonade into the drinks that I can. I typically get my drink sweetened with the classic syrup as well. It doesn't have any caffeine, but sometimes I'm just in the mood for a cold, fruity drink.

Iced Coffee

If I need something fairly simple, a little less pricey and will wake me up, iced coffee is a great choice. I like to order mine with caramel or vanilla syrup and whole milk. I wish I could drink my coffee black, but I'm just not at that level yet. Honestly, though, you just can't go wrong with iced coffee.

White Chocolate Mocha

This is one of the few hot drinks that I order. The white chocolate mocha is perfect if you want something sweet that also has espresso to wake you up a little bit. I drink this year-round but more-so in the winter. If you happen to be someone who doesn't enjoy a lot of espresso, try ordering it with just one shot instead of two.

Caramel Frappuccino

The caramel frappuccino should more-so be considered dessert that an actual drink. I don't order it too often, but it always feels like a treat when I do. It is so sweet with just a hint of espresso. If you have never had a frappuccino, its a blended drink and reminds me of a milkshake, in a way. If you've had a rough day and need to treat yourself, try this one out.

There are still plenty of Starbucks drinks that I haven't tried, and I'm sure that I would like, but these were just to name a few. Although it might seem intimidating, head to Starbucks and try something that you haven't before.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
