These Are Officially The Best Starbucks Drinks Of All Time

There's a lot to love about all the new drinks Starbucks rolls out. But at the end of the day, it's the heavy-hitters that matter. The cult faves. The ones you always order again. Maybe it's the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte or a cup of Pike Place. Or perhaps it's a new innovative Starbucks secret menu drink—and even one that's earned its place on the permanent menu (we love you, Pink Drink).

Whether you're on the hunt for a new regular or just looking to try something new, these are the ultimate Starbucks drinks you have to try.

Peppermint Mocha

We all know that during the holidays, Starbucks ramps up its menu with several winter-themed lattes. Honestly, we never know which one to pick, besides this classic. The mint and cocoa flavor combination never disappoints.

Iced Green Tea Lemonade

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.

Honey Almond Milk Flat White

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.

London Fog

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.

Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

Dragonfruit isn't a typical flavor in the U.S., 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.

Frozen Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher

And while we're on the topic, let's talk about Starbucks' latest additions to its menu—the Frozen Lemonade Refreshers. The Mango Dragonfruit is our favorite of the three.

Coconut Milk Latte

This latte was introduced in a grouping of three (with the Honey Almond Milk Flat White and the Oat Milk Honey Latte), 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.


Cold Brew

A classic—deserving of its high spot on this list.

Chocolate Cream Cold Brew

This is one of the best cold brews on the menu. It's got a touch of vanilla syrup and is topped with a rich, creamy chocolate cold foam.

Blonde Roast

A happy medium for those who need gigantic pours of coffee every single day but aren't trying to give themselves ulcers. You know, lighter. Milder. Yum!


Matcha Green Tea Latte

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.

S'mores Frappuccino

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 it has all of our favorite flavors—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.

Iced Passion Tango Tea

The Iced Passion Tango Tea has been on the Starbucks menu for years. The blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, and apple is bright and flavorful—even without any sweetener. It's the perfect refreshing summer drink.

Mocha Frappuccino

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.

Iced Lavender Oatmilk Latte

Lavender made its way to the 2024 spring menu and we were happily surprised. Instead of a flavored syrup, this creamy latte features a proprietary lavender powder that goes it a subtle purple hue and light lavender flavor. We hope it makes its return again.

Nitro Cold Brew

It's cold brew, but better. Infused with nitrogen, this one is so velvety smooth, it almost tastes a touch sweet, but without any sugar.

Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew

Of the Oleato line, the Golden Foam Cold Brew was one of our favorites. The coffee is topped with a luxuriously creamy olive oil-infused cold foam.

Flat White

People go nuts for the signature look of the flat white. Do you know how many times people have posted their #FlatWhite to Instagram? Millions. Millions!

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

It packs all the punch of a good cold brew, but cuts the overt coffee flavor with a the addition of vanilla sweet cream.

Strawberry Açai Refresher

This Refresher is an even lighter twist on the Pink Drink, making it the summer treat everyone goes back to year after year.

Spicy Dragonfruit Refresher

For a twist on the classic Refreshers, Starbucks concocted a Spicy Chili Powder Blend. Our favorite is the is the Spicy Dragonfruit Refresher, but there's also Spicy Strawberry and Spicy Pineapple. Each tastes like a spicy margarita, but without the tequila.

Iced Dirty Chai Latte

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.

Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso

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.

Iced Matcha Latte

The hot matcha latte is great, but this one offers the same familiar, caffeinated flavor in a refreshing cold drink option.

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew

The PSL is a perfect specimen as is, but making a cold brew version is great for those that opt for an iced drink all year 'round. The cold cream on top tastes just like the pumpkin spice you know and love.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

It would be criminal to not include this one, right? 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.

Pink Drink

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. It's also the first secret menu item added to the permanent menu.

Iced Caramel Macchiato

There's something nostalgic about the caramel macchiato. 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!

Caramel Frappuccino

This one might seem like a lame choice since it's one of the simpler 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.

White Chocolate Mocha

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.

Iced Coffee

Sometimes simple is the move. With all of the new cold brews and nitro brews, it's not the best tasting or strongest cold coffee available, but it's a classic nonetheless.
