31 days of My Favorite Things: Day 6

If you know me at all or you have read this blog for any length of time, you know one of my absolute favorite things is Starbucks.

I get way too excited when the holiday red cups come out.  My heart skipped a little beat when I received my gold card in the mail, which really just means I spend too much money at Starbucks.  I love when my favorite barista's are working and I get to see their smiling faces in the mornings.  I love meeting friends for coffee dates there and leaving smelling like coffee because we have been there so long laughing and sharing.  Yep, Starbucks is really one of my happy places.  When I got off the plane this summer from being in South Africa, it was the first place I found in the airport.  Guess you could say I might be addicted! 

Here are my favorite Starbucks drinks and honestly, they aren't that exciting, nothing on the secret menu or anything.  Just some good ole classics!

1.  Grande NonFat Peppermint Mocha extra hot light whip preferably in a red cup

Nothing makes this girl happier than this drink.  And when I found out they would make it for me any ole time, well it was dangerous!  I try to refrain so I can save it for the holidays now, but it is nice to know I can have a treat every now and again!  some friends like to add the white chocolate syrup, but I am fan of the original.  Nothing better!

2.  Vanilla Frappaccino

Simple and classic.  Tastes like a sugar cookie so what can be wrong with it.  This is one of my favorite summertime drinks!  

3.  Caramel Apple Spice

This drink is like fall in a cup!  I know you wouldn't really think that this would be a Starbucks fave but honestly, I really love it!  Perfect for one of those chilly mornings!  I would highly suggest you give this hidden gem a try!  Especially if you like those fall drinks!

4.  Shaken Green Tea and Lemonade

My go to summertime drink and it is so yummy!  I love how refreshing this drink is!  Such a great treat on a warm summer day!

5.  Nonfat white mocha

Basic and one of the staples of Starbucks I would think and probably the thing I order the most on my early morning stops to the Starbucks.

Another thing I love about Starbucks it having the app on my phone.  Not sure if you are aware but if you register your giftcards you can earn free drinks and other specials!  And who doesn't love free Starbucks!

What is your favorite Starbucks drinks?  I would love some new things to try!  Have a great week friends!

  3. Alisha, I would have been in trouble if there had been starbucks at WCU when I went there! :)
