We all know the feeling. When you're standing inline at Starbucks and it finally gets to your turn. When the barista asks you what your order is, you completely blank. You end up staring at the large board behind the barista and ordering the first thing that you see. Hopefully, next time you go to Starbucks, this list will help you to try a new drink that you may not have tried before and love.
1. Latte with one pump of pumpkin
Personally, I think that at times, pumpkin spice lattes can be too sweet to consume. They contain a lot of added sugar that can make it hard for people to enjoy while on a diet. Therefore, my mom and I looked for a way to combine the pumpkin taste in a pumpkin spice latte that we love, with less sweetness. The best way to have this is by ordering a plain latte with one pump of pumpkin added to it. Therefore, it has the pumpkin taste that you love, but does not contain too much flavoring.
2. White chocolate mocha
This hidden gem is one of my favorite drinks to get on a cold day. Personally, I love homemade mocha lattes, but the Starbucks regular mocha lattes I do not enjoy. One alternative to a regular mocha that has a lighter, and more interesting taste is a white chocolate mocha. The white chocolate makes the drink something you would not typically be able to make at home. This way, you will be getting a drink that is unique.
3. Iced Caramel Macchiatto
One of my favorite drinks from Starbucks that I enjoy in the summertime is an iced caramel macchiato. This two tone drink combines the sweetness from the caramel and the bitterness of the coffee. The fact that it is so chilled as well makes it the perfect thing to enjoy when it is so hot out. As you drink it, the flavors combine to make the caramel and coffee mix together to create new flavor as you near the bottom of it.
4. Dragon drink
The dragon drink is a healthier alternative than the traditional Starbucks drinks, and an all time favorite for lots of customers. It is known for its bright colors and flavors that are mixed in this drink. The drink combines açaí, pieces of dragonfruit, and coconut milk to make this drink better health wise for customers. Added with the dragonfruit flavors makes it flavorful. Additionally, the ice makes it perfect for the summertime.
5. Peppermint mocha
The perfect holiday season drink is the peppermint mocha. This classic drink includes the bitterness from coffee contrasted by the sweet chocolate, added with the refreshing peppermint. The combination makes you want to drink this everyday. Chocolate lovers are drawn into this drink due to the rich chocolate undertone of the mocha. The peppermint is the perfect holiday twist.
