5 Secret Menu Starbucks Drinks From My Roommate, Arguably Starbucks' Biggest Fan

5 off-the-menu Starbucks drinks any inexperienced coffee customer will love

I've never been a coffee girl. Every once in a while I'll indulge in a Dunkin' caramel swirl, or Starbucks cloud macchiato, but it's not every day that you'll find me with a coffee in my hand.

However, I live with Starbucks' number one fan. Yes, I know that is a bold statement. Yes, I'm standing by it.

My roommate Sam goes to Starbucks once a day, sometimes twice if she's in need of more caffeine after work. By now it's safe to say she's tried most of the Starbucks drink menu — so much so that she no longer uses the menu to order.

In our house, it's become routine that if one of my other roommates needs a coffee, and can't figure out what to order, Sam will create a drink for them that never fails to be incredible.

Here's a list of some of her secret concoctions.

1. Venti Iced Coffee with extra ice, no classic syrup, almond milk, sugar-free cinnamon dolce syrup, and caramel drizzle.

This creation is my absolute favorite. It is sweet, but not too sweet, milky but not so much that you feel like you're just drinking coffee milk, and my favorite part - relatively low calorie. So often the best drinks at Starbucks are not worth their overly sugared contents. This drink is the perfect compromise.

2. Triple shot of espresso over ice in a grande cup with pumpkin cream

This drink is a nice alternative to your regular pumpkin spice latte. It'll still provide you with that pumpkin flavor, except this time it'll be accompanied by a big punch of caffeine.

3. Iced Coffee with extra ice and white chocolate mocha sauce

This one is pretty self-explanatory but still extremely good.

If you're really not into drinking coffee but are looking for a new drink:

4. Honey Citrus Mint Tea with light lemonade

For our non-coffee drinkers, this tea/lemonade mix will both quench your thirst, satisfy your sweet tooth, and provide some caffeine.

5. Iced Chai with milk of your choice, and 3 pumps of pumpkin syrup

This drink absolutely screams fall, in the best way possible. Though the chai will provide caffeine, if you're feeling like you need an extra kick, try adding a shot of espresso.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
