There's a lot to love about Starbucks—their innovation, their ubiquitousness. But at the end of the day, it's their heavy-hitters that matter, their cult favs. The ones you almost *always* go back to order. Maybe it's their classic and seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte. Or perhaps it's something more permanent like the reliable cold brew or a grande Blonde Roast. Or maybe you've made it onto Starbucks TikTok and have been trying some new favorites you've found there, like the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso. All of those made our list of the best Starbucks drinks to exist, but where they land you'll just have to see. Whether you are on the hunt for a new regular, looking to change up your normal order, or in the mood to try something new, these are the ultimate Starbucks drinks you have to try.
A oldie, but a goodie! Not to be extra, but this classic drink is truly one of the most refreshing drinks known to man. So if you haven't tried it already, please just go and live your best life. Thanks.
We all know that during the holidays, Starbucks ramps up its menu with at least five different winter-themed lattes. Honestly, we never know which one to pick, besides this classic. The mint and cocoa flavor combination definitely does not disappoint.
Dragonfruit isn't a typical flavor option, so the uniqueness alone of is a selling point for this drink. The mango adds even more tropical flavors, so it tastes good without being as filling or as heavy as a hot bev.
The almond milk and espresso go great together, but if you're looking to taste honey in every sip this drink falls a liiittle short. Still—soul-warming.
Here's the thing—the London Fog is a super Canadian drink. And as you know, Canada never disappoints. This coffee-alternative is made with Earl Grey tea so you'll still get the foaminess of a latte, without being buzzed on a super high dosage of caffeine.
While this drink has been featured on the fan-run Starbucks Secret Menu site, the dirty chai (chai with a shot of espresso) is actually a pretty classic concept. It's perfect for when you want energy of a classic latte, but not necessarily the taste. Possibly the best end-of- summer coffee drink in the game.
This latte was introduced in a grouping of three (with the Honey Almond Milk Flat White and the Oat Milk Honey Latte) last year, but it's by far the most superior of the group. It's light and creamy and tropical in the vaguest sense of the word—a heart-warming delight.
Sometimes going simple is the move, and in that case iced coffee is a no brainer. What with all of the latest cold brews and nitro brews, it's not the best tasting or strongest cold coffee available, but it's a classic nonetheless.
The mocha Frappuccino was probably everyone's first go-to order at Starbucks. It tastes like going to the mall as a middle schooler and regret, but in the best way possible. It's obviously on the sweeter side, so maybe isn't the best choice for someone looking for a more coffee-forward taste.
A happy medium for those who need gigantic pours of coffee every single day but aren't trying to give themselves ulcers prematurely. You know, lighter. Milder. Yum!
A gorgeous way to feel like you're doing something nice to your body. That's why this admittedly boring drink has stuck around for so long.
Maybe it's the fact that this bad boy is seasonal that makes us want it that much more. Maybe it's the fact that literally all of our favorite flavors are included—chocolate, vanilla, marshmallow, coffee. Or maybe it's just, like, really, really good, and we don't have to defend it any more than we already have.
People go nuts for the signature look of the flat white, and don't even get them going on the taste. Do you know how many times people have posted their #FlatWhite to Instagram? Millions. Millions!
It packs all the punch of a good cold brew, but cuts the overt coffee flavor with a the addition of vanilla sweet cream.
This Refresher is an even lighter twist on the Pink Drink, making it the summer treat everyone goes back to year after year.
Is it a mouthful? Yes. But do you want to fill your mouth with it? Also, yes. Gaining popularity on TikTok, this new drink takes an espresso and mixes it with brown sugar and cinnamon before being topped with oat milk.
The hot matcha latte is great, but this one offers the same familiar, caffeinated flavor in a refreshing cold drink option.
A classic—deserving of its higher up spot on this list.
The PSL is a perfect specimen as is, but making a version that's cold brew is great for those that opt for an iced drink all year round. The cold cream on top tastes just like the pumpkjn spice you know and love.
There's something nostalgic about the caramel macchiato, no? About three Delish editors' eyes glazed over when I mentioned the drink: "I grew up on that stuff." It's just so good! It always has been!
The Pink Drink was popular long before die-hard keto followers made it diet-friendly (though that didn't hurt). It embraced Starbucks' addition of coconut milk and really leaned into the whole "do it for the 'gram" thing. A+ all around.
This one might seem like a lame choice since it's one of the more simple items on the Starbucks menu, but the caramel frappuccino is the perfect blank canvas for creative customizations. With a few add-ons and extras, you can make this drink all your own...and even make it taste like a Twix bar.
Just like the s'mores frapp, the salted caramel mocha is so crazy-good, there's no use in identifying why. All we know is its been a Starbucks mainstay for years—and we're not mad about that.
This is here because it is my opinion that it is the best Starbucks drink in all of time and space and Starbucks history. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
It would be criminal to end this list with anything else, no? The PSL is the ultimate perennial fav, the reason people quite literally swarm Starbucks' mentions starting August 1st every year. Sweet pumpkin, deep espresso, and spices? Sign. Us. Up. Every. Single. Time.
