The Best Starbucks Drinks Ranked

Starbucks has a wide range of drinks to choose from — they’re always coming out with new drinks for every season and updating their menu. I was born and raised on Starbucks, so I found it fitting to make a list of their cult favorites, ranging from their classic drinks to their latest hits and give them each a rating. 

10. Americano

This classic espresso and hot water drink is perfect for coffee lovers who don’t want the added cream and sugar. One way to make it sweet without loading up on calories and dairy is adding a splash of coconut milk. 

9. Java Chip Frappe 

Java chip frappuccinos are easily the runner-up frappe. While it may not be as popular now, this was the gateway to my coffee addiction — you can’t beat mini chocolate chips mixed with frozen coffee.

8. Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade 

This crisp, refreshing mix of tea and lemonade has become a summer classic at Starbucks and is a go to for any hot, sunny day. 

7. Vanilla Latte

 Latte’s are a classic, go-to drink, but the added pumps of vanilla make it sweet enough to be better than your average cup of joe, while the typical two shots of espresso( I usually go for three, or, on a really rough morning, four) give that extra boost to make it through your toughest days. 

6. Toasted White Chocolate Mocha 

This is the Christmas version of the original white chocolate mocha — just more smokey and less sweet. lus, everything tastes better out of their infamous red Christmas cups. 

5. Strawberry Acai Refresher 

There’s a reason this cooling drink sells out year-round — it’s sweeter than coffee while still giving you your daily dose of caffeine, which is perfect when you’re in the mood for something light and refreshing. 

4. Cold Brew with Salted Cream Cold Foam 

Starbucks serving cold brew is by far my favorite addition to their menu. This 12 hour brew with cold foam tastes like ice cream — AKA heaven — in a cup, making it my latest go-to Starbucks drink. 

3. Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappe 

The crunchy caramel sugar topping is what makes this frappe such a hit. You can’t beat Starbucks caramel sauce, but adding crunchy pieces of caramel? Perfection. 

2. Pink Drink 

This fan favorite is a twist on the original strawberry acai refresher and has Starbucks lovers raving over it’s perfect balance of coconut milk and the strawberry acai drink, making it number 2 on the list.

1. Iced Caramel Macchiato 

The caramel macchiato is by far the easiest drink to rank. It’s the go-to drink you can always depend on. It's the perfect blend of sweet caramel, milk and espresso, making it the perfect pick me up on your best and worst days.
