5 Must Try Starbucks Drinks for the Summer

Are you ready for long, hot summer days? I know I am. Summer isn’t summer without something to cool down with. Starbuck’s “secret” menu items are a great addition to any summer day and the beautiful colors will also compliment the bright aesthetic your summer is bound to have. Reenergize and refresh with these five delicious drinks!

The Kiwi Refresher

The Kiwi Starbucks refresher tastes similar to green jolly ranchers. The green is a great summer treat and would even be good blended with ice, mimicking a green apple slushy. It’s the perfect bright green color to complement a bright summer day!

Dragon Fruit Frappuccino

The Dragon Fruit Frappuccino is on Starbucks ‘ secret menu and is also my favorite on this list! When ordering this delicious drink, ask for: a vanilla bean frappe and add dragon fruit and blackberry inclusions. This drink can easily be made vegan by asking for coconut or almond milk and omitting whipped cream. This is a sweet, light, and creamy option for a hot summer day. The bright pink color is a great compliment to any summer outfit. 

Light Passion Tea Drink

Fitness goals are made by many during the summer, so a delicious lighter option is always appreciated. The light passion tea drink is similar to the famous “pink drink”, but only has about thirty-five calories. Get this drink by asking for an unsweetened iced passion tango tea with one half coconut milk and one half passion tea with added stevia. This drink also has a beautiful light pink color.

Strawberry Acai Lemonade Remix

This drink currently has over seventy thousand likes on TikTok! The famous Acai Strawberry Lemonade drink is ordered by asking for: venti strawberry acai lemonade with light ice, no scoop of strawberry, add light peach juice, and six pumps of raspberry syrup. I will definitely be trying this selection on my next Starbucks trip!

Tropical Lemonade

This final pink drink is bound to compliment a hot summer day. This drink is ordered by asking for a venti ices guava white tea lemonade with coconut milk, no water, add passion tea, and ask for it not to be shaken. 

The possibilities at Starbucks are endless! Get creative this summer and find your perfect summer drink. Remember, there is no actual “secret menu” at Starbucks, so be sure to ask for the specific ingredients you want in your drink and be patient with your barista. I hope you get to enjoy some of these delicious drinks this summer and remember to stay hydrated!
