If you’re heading to the pool with your friends it’s almost mandatory to stop at Starbucks on your way there. Starbucks drinks just hit differently when you’re poolside. These six different Starbucks drinks are perfect to order for the summer!
1. Dragon Drink
This sweet and refreshing drink is perfect for sipping by the pool with a couple friends. If you’re 21 and up, pairing the dragon drink with a fruity vodka is super satisfying. The dragon drink is a combination of sweet mango and dragon fruit flavors, hand-shaken with creamy coconut milk and chunky ice. This bright magenta drink does have about 45-55 mg of caffeine in it to give you a little boost. Try ordering this drink for the summer before Starbucks discontinues it.
2. S’mores Frappuccino
The s’mores frappuccino is the perfect cold drink to sip on during the summer because it really tastes just like a s’more that you would be munching on by the campfire. The s’mores frappuccino is made up of marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce, a blend of vanilla, coffee, milk, ice and topped with marshmallowy whipped cream and graham cracker crumble. As Starbucks advertises, no campfire needed. This drink does have 75 mg of caffeine but 100 percent s’more flavor!
3. Cold Brew with Salted Caramel Cold Foam
The cold brew with salted caramel cold foam has a stronger coffee flavor than the previous two drinks. This Starbucks drink is perfect to order during the summer when you have to get caffeinated ASAP after a long night out. This drink is where savory meets sweet with Starbucks’ signature smooth cold brew, sweetened with caramel sauce and topped with salted cold foam. This drink is a salty and sweet lover’s dream. Since this drink is a lot more coffee influenced the caffeine is sitting at 185 mg. Perfect for a wake me up!
4. Pink Drink
This drink is made famous by the beauty YouTuber, James Charles. This drink is his go-to and it is a perfect sweet drink for the summer. The pink drink is made from the strawberry acai refresher with accents of passion fruit mixed with coconut milk. This drink tastes like an ice-cold pink starburst. The pink drink is a cute and tasty accessory when sunbathing at the beach, shopping at an outdoor mall or sipping by the bright blue pool.
Since this drink is essentially a Starbucks refresher with coconut milk added, you can take any other refresher that you prefer and add a splash of coconut milk for a thick and creamy drink. The great thing about this coffee shop is that it encourages customizing your drink, so get a little adventurous with your order and you won’t be disappointed!
5. Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher
This is Starbucks’ newest tropical-inspired summer drink made with sweet mango and dragon fruit flavors. This drink is yet another pink shade, but you don’t see me complaining. They are not only tasty but super pretty looking! This refreshing drink only has about 45-55 mg of caffeine, so if you’re looking to add some extra power to your drink, add a flavored Red Bull and you’ll thank me later.
6. Strawberry Acai Refresher
Lastly, the strawberry acai refresher is a staple from Starbucks. This drink has been around for a while and continues to be a favorite. It is ice-cold with strawberry flavors accented by passion fruit and acai notes. This refresher is also lightly caffeinated with green coffee extract sitting at 45-55 mg. This drink also pairs really well with a strawberry or watermelon vodka if you’re 21 and up!
