No matter the time of year, Starbucks is a morning must-have. After a while though, your favorite Starbucks drink can start to get boring and repetitive, begging your taste buds for a change of pace.
Do you ever just wish you had more options?
Lucky for you, Starbucks just released a new set of drinks for the summer season that your taste buds are sure to thank you for. Trust us, you’ll be craving one by the time you are done reading this article.
1. S’mores Frappuccino
The S’mores Frappuccino is possibly one of the only Starbucks summer drinks that is sure to make you feel like you are sitting around a campfire.
From chocolate sauce to a decadent marshmallow infused whipped cream topped with graham cracker crumbles, how could you say no to this drink? With every sip, you can enjoy the irresistible taste of s’mores without having to actually sit around the fire and work for one.
Want to know the best part of this delicious drink? There is coffee, which means you can get your caffeine kick while enjoying a sweet treat.
2. Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino
Next up on the list of Starbucks summer drinks is a cookie lover’s dream beverage. This is the frappuccino that started my deep Starbucks addiction, and for the first time in years it has finally made its way back to the menu. To say the least, I am beyond excited about it. It is just that delicious.
To make this drink, milk and ice are blended with mocha sauce and frappuccino chips. To top the heavenly treat, a layer of vanilla whipped cream is coated with cookie crumbs and a drizzle of even more mocha sauce.
This frappuccino also has coffee, making it a great option to satisfy your caffeine cravings. Get the coffee, without the drab flavor. Spice it up with something fun for the summer!
3. Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino
Love caramel? This one will be your favorite on the list, I promise.
This drink starts with a blend of dark roast coffee and dark caramel sauce, mixed with ice and milk.
To add another layer to this delicious flavor pairing, it is topped with vanilla whipped cream, more dark caramel drizzling, and caramelized crunchy topping. It is basically a caramel-haven.
This is a perfect cold drink for hot summer days.
4. Dragon Drink
This is one of the prettiest Starbucks summer drinks that may have ever existed. What is better than a pretty AND delicious drink?
This tropical daydream is a blend of the refreshing flavors of dragon fruit and mango. Coconut milk is added to take the fruity, tropical vibes to the next level. The coconut milk also adds an extra layer of sweetness to the drink. Real diced dragon fruit is mixed in.
This drink finds the perfect harmony between fruity and sweet. The result is a combination that is perfect for summer days. It also contains caffeine, which makes it a great coffee substitute.
It’s a win-win.
5. Mango Dragon Fruit Starbucks Refresher
Though this menu item is very similar to the Dragon Drink, it is not exactly the same.
The Mango Dragon Fruit Starbucks Refresher combines the sweet flavors of mango and dragon fruit over ice. A scoop of real dragon fruit is also mixed in, much like in the Dragon Drink.
The difference between this drink and the Dragon Drink is that this one does not have coconut milk. This drink is a bit lighter in both calories and taste as a result.
You still get the sweet and tropical flavor of the fruits, and a drink that is equally delicious and thirst-quenching.
