My Favorite Starbucks Drinks!

I’ve worked as a barista for a little over five months now. While I am by no means an expert, I do have a few recommendations that correlate with my moods/needs that I would like to share with you. I thought this would be a fun little post to help me get past my writer’s block if I’m being completely honest.

Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato is a lovely blend of white chocolate, coconut milk and espresso. This is my afternoon go to. You can always get it in decaf if caffeine bothers you. This is the perfect sweet treat for an afternoon pick me up.

The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a drink I tried during the spur of the moment. This is one that is good when you need a lot of caffeine the cold brew is steeped for 20 hours and it’s less bitter than the regular Starbucks iced coffee. This is for the days when I get less than five hours of sleep.

Would this be a Starbucks post if I didn’t recommend a Frappuccino? This is a secret menu item that I LOVE is called a Cotton Candy Frappuccino.  Ask for a Vanilla Bean Frap with raspberry syrup in it. It’s 1 pump for a tall and 2 pumps for a grande and venti.

There we have it, my top 3 favorite Starbucks drinks! Working as a barista has been a pleasure and I love it when I recommend a drink and a customer ends up loving it.

Happy Sipping!

My name is Clara and for as long as I can remember I loved to write. I would sit at my kitchen table in a two bedroom trailer that my parents rented behind a motel on the coast of lake huron in a small tourist town with my feet swinging back and forth. My handwriting was awful but I loved telling stories and I would write them and then drag my little sisters to the couch to read it to them. My grandma bought me my first composition notebook and a pack of Winnie the pooh pencils. Fast Forward 14 years later and here I am. A 21 year old college student who has changed her major three times and has finally settled on Communications. I'm a part time barista at a Barnes and Noble Cafe and I write in my free time, mostly on my novel. IG | lifebyclara
