Ordering Starbucks drinks can be a challenge. With such long, fancy names, how do we even know what we’re ordering? What’s the difference between a grande and a venti? Whether you prefer coffee or tea, hot or cold, there’s something on this list for you. For those who don’t know, a tall is basically a small (12 ounces), a grande can be compared to a medium (16 ounces), a venti means a large (24 ounces), and a trenta is known as an extra-large (31 ounces). Order your Starbucks drinks with confidence next time you’re headed for the drive-thru.
