7 Best Starbucks Drinks For Summer.
This drink has been popularized on Instagram by many influencers, not necessarily as a paid promotion but because it’s such a picturesque drink. But the appeal of its appearance is not the only thing that makes this drinks so popular. It is a special combination of the sweet and refreshing Strawberry Acacia refresher and coconut milk, finished off with pieces of strawberry. I, especially, love the hints of passion that add a tropical vibe to the drink. It is great for everyone, including vegans and vegetarians. Although you can swap out the milk for your preference, I’d advise you first try it as it is.
Strawberry Funnel cake Frappuccino.
This is the most recent addition to the summer drinks menu at Starbucks. It’s inspired by the strawberry funnel cake and is made up of funnel-cake flavored syrup, coffee, milk, and ice with whipped cream and funnel cake bits topping. According to Starbucks a sip of this should be a reminder of summer’s favorite moments at the carnival with the colorful rides. I don’t know about that, but it gives me the energy and sweet feeling of summer. There is also a crème Frappuccino version that is great if you don’t want the caffeine or are looking for a delicious kid-safe option.
Do you love camping and sitting by the campfire making s’mores? I do, it’s another one of my favorite summer activities. If you love s’mores then you’ll love this drink. It’s not made up of actual s’mores but each sip will make you believe otherwise. It’s a deliciously creamy combination of coffee, vanilla, milk, and ice. Topped with marshmallow infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce and granola cracker crumbles. It is loaded with sugar so I hope you are a sweet tooth, otherwise, you may not enjoy this drink as much.
I’m already in love with mango and dragon fruit separately, so imagine how obsessed I am with this drink. Even the name sounds so cool. This tropical sensation is a combination of sweet mango and dragon fruit, hand-shaken with coconut milk and served on ice and diced dragon fruit. It gives me the beach vibes I need for summer with every sip I take of it.
Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew.
Cold brews at Starbucks are always a fan favorite regardless of the time of the year. But the Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew is my favorite during summer. It is a sweet and savory refreshment loaded with caffeine for the energy boost I need, combined with the sweet buttery caramel flavor, and topped with the salted cold form for a nice contrast.
Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher.
The perfect poolside drink that once again combines my favorite fruits. The refreshing drink is a combination of hand-shaken mango and dragon fruit flavors served on ice and actual dragon fruit pieces. It is just the fruit energizer I need on a hot summer afternoon by the pool.
Iced Guava Passion Fruit Drink.
If you are looking for another fruity tropical option, it doesn’t get more tropical than a combination of guava and the tarty sweetness of passion fruit. The fruity drink is a combination of guava juice, passion, and coconut milk, shaken and served on ice. It’s my go-to drink on my beach days when I want to bask in the sun and pretend, I’m on some Island in the Maldives.
The list will vary depending on people’s different opinions and preferences. But anything cooling, sweet and energizing is a great Starbucks option for a refreshing drink, especially on a hot summer day.
What can you order at Starbucks on a hot day?
It depends on your preference but anything that would cool you off and refresh you like a cold brew, iced drink, or Frappuccino are all great options.
