If you haven't already noticed, it's hot AF outside. It's that muggy and humid weather that we've been waiting for all year. Don't complain, with winter just months away, enjoy this heat while it lasts.
That said, a great way to cool down and beat the heat is to stay hydrated. Of course, drinking just plain ol H20 is essential, but you can also go for something a little more flavorful and sweet to get those sugar levels up and going.
Here are a couple iced and cool Starbucks drinks that are trending this summer and are as delicious as photogenic.
1. Cool down with a photogenic Pink Drink
Why you should order it: Since it's release, Pink Drink has made waves across the Insta-sphere. With its bold color hue and creamy yet refreshing taste, this iced drink is definitely a must-try for the summer.
2. Cool down a tasty and tangy hibiscus Refresher
Why you should order it: I love this drink because it tastes so natural. With real chunks of tangy fruit, it's never too sweet, especially if you order it without sweetening syrup. And as pictured above, you can order any refresher with coconut milk to give it a creamy and tasty boost.
3. Cool down with an iced tea lemonade
Why you should order it: Starbucks offers a variety of iced tea's during the summer and they can all be shaken up with some lemonade for the extra hydrating kick and flavor. My fav flavor is green tea shaken with lemonade. And if I'm feeling wild, I'll add a pump of peach syrup. Yum yum.
4. Cool down with an energy-fueling iced Cold Brew
Why you should order it: Starbucks Cold Brew differs from regular iced coffee because it's steeped in cool filtered water for 20-hours and as a result packs a serious caffeine punch and is more full-bodied in taste. This is a must-try for all those caffeine-lovers out there.
5. Cool down with a spicy and smooth iced Chai latte
Why you should order it: This drink is great because the flavor is totally unique and it gives you a great caffeine boost as well. With so much more flavor than a regular latte is a great drink to have if you're looking to break out of your regular coffee routine.
6. Cool down with a mega tasty Strawberry Acai Refresher
Why you should order it: Since it's release, this new refresher has been making waves online. I've tried it, and let me tell you, it's as delicious as it looks. And also surprisingly, not too sweet. Just a perfect mix of tangy and sweet. Like other refreshers, you can ask for it with coconut milk for an added boost of smoothness and flavor.
7. Cool down with a tasty and sweet iced caramel macchiato
Why you should order it: This drink is perfect if you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth and get a much-needed caffeine boost satisfied.
8. Cool down with a brand new dragon fruit Refresher
Why you should order it: This is Starbucks newest addition to the "Refresher" family and so far the reviews are great. Not only does this refreshing iced summer beverage taste great, it's bold pink hue looks awesome in photos.
9. Cool down with a classic and simple iced Americano
Why you should order it: If you're looking for a no-fuss easy summer drink, go for the iced Americano. Bonus: it's also one of the cheapest options on the iced drink menu. Add a shot of flavored syrup if you're feeling extra wild.
