Eight ways to chill with Starbucks this summer


When it comes to keeping your cool this summer, Starbucks has you covered – from classic iced espresso to the newest cold brew, and everything in between. Here are eight mouthwatering beverages that are sure to transport you to a perfect summer getaway, no matter where you are.

1. S'mores Frappuccino Blended Beverage

Can you believe it’s been 25 years since Frappuccino® blended beverage first joined the Starbucks menu? Since then, the beverage has become a cultural icon and inspired dozens of unique flavors around the world (remember the Unicorn?). But perhaps none are more summery than the crackling campfire goodness of S’mores Frappuccino, made with marshmallow-infused whipped cream, milk chocolate sauce and a graham cracker crumble.

2. Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almondmilk Foam

One of the newest ways to enjoy summer is also one of its most delicious. Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almondmilk Foam starts with smooth cold brew, topped with lightly sweet cinnamon, vanilla syrup and almondmilk cold foam. The nondairy beverage is only 40 calories for a grande.

3. Nitro Cold Brew

Simple, yet elegant, Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew is made with smooth, subtly sweet cold brew infused with nitrogen. And if drinking one just isn’t enough, you can download a video of its velvety cascading crema as a virtual background for your next video conference.

4. Strawberry Açaí Starbucks Refreshers Beverage

You probably guessed that Starbucks Refreshers beverages are refreshing – it’s in the name after all. But did you know that they are also made using the extract of unroasted coffee beans? Cool down with one of the originals in the Starbucks Refreshers lineup, Strawberry Açaí Starbucks Refreshers® Beverage, made with sweet strawberry flavors accented by passion fruit and açaí notes shaken with green coffee extract, served over ice. Or add coconutmilk and voilà – Pink Drink!
