Coffee is an excuse to hang out nowadays. The "coffee culture" is inevitable, and we almost don't know anyone who doesn't drink it. Nevertheless, some people simply prefer a sweeter, lighter beverage, and why wouldn't they? You can get a fancy drink anywhere, but Starbucks is so attractive that you probably feel the need to try their products, even though you're not a coffee enthusiast. That's alright because we have the top ten recommendations about what to order at Starbucks if coffee is not your cup of tea!

10. Iced Green Tea Lemonade

Lemonade is a good choice for any season and any part of the day. Its taste is just so flexible! Starbucks promotes their products like a pro, and you can see their signature logo everywhere. Nevertheless, maybe you've never heard before how good their lemonade tastes!

With almost no caffeine and a lot of mint, lemongrass, and lemon verbena, this lemonade sounds like a great beverage. Furthermore, it's pretty much sweetened and, of course, just like every Starbucks cold drink, it'll make you freeze! Still, if you didn't like this one, there'll be more lemonade on our list, so keep scrolling!

9. Iced Golden Ginger Drink

Iced Golden Ginger Drink sure looks gorgeous

"Golden Ginger" sounds like the best combination in the world when it comes to Starbucks cold drinks. However, opinions on these are rather mixed. Nonetheless, Starbucks simply knows how to sell them! Just by looking at this flawless blend of yellow, you'll get a wish to try it!

To be honest, you won't regret that decision! This is a natural blend of pineapple and ginger, coconut milk, and ice that makes it "frosty." Furthermore, this is not the only beverage from this category that'll catch your eye. Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink is another recommendation, especially if you'd prefer tea. Still, this one is cold and refreshing!

8. Strawberry Frappuccino Blended Beverage

How good is it actually? Check out some reviewers!

It's kind of strange when we think of Frappuccinos as coffee beverages since they definitely don't focus on coffee. You can take it as ice cream or a milkshake, as it's really that sweet! It just depends on your taste when it comes to which one you should try. Our pick is definitely the Frappuccino with strawberry!

In fact, Strawberry Frappuccino has zero caffeine in it. Furthermore, it's one of the best options when you're looking for a fresh drink in the burning summer days. Frappuccino is always the most "icy" thing on Starbucks' menu – it is freezing cold, majorly milky, and even fruity.

7. Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino

As you can see, this drink is much more about chocolate than coffee

Starbucks named this drink "a party in your mouth," and that's how a Frappuccino should feel! Frappuccinos include coffee in their ingredients list. However, you won't have a hard time drinking it if you don't like coffee. On the contrary, this Frappuccino is focused on (double) chocolate flavor!

This cold drink is very refreshing as it combines ice and vanilla, and you'll barely taste coffee in it because it's very sweet! It won't keep you awake and focused, although coffee is inevitable in some Frappuccinos. 

6. Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte

You'll probably consider this mix of India and Sri Lanka teas "royal," especially because of its silky blend, but it really depends on your taste. Nevertheless, it has one of the nicest scores out of all the hot, black teas Starbucks serves. It looks and tastes so refined!

Besides this "English" tea, there is also the "London Fog" tea latte, which is sweeter than English. So, if you're more into vanilla-like ingredients, go for the Fog. If you'd prefer a classic tea for early mornings, choose the one we already suggested!

5. Pink Drink

Even James Charles tried to make this fancy beverage

Yes, you've read it right, the drink is literally named "Pink Drink." So, is it as extravagant as it sounds? Well, it's one of the finest Starbucks items! This beverage is maybe the best Starbucks mix of good-look and good taste since it's really pink and really refreshing! It'll make your spring or summer fruity sweet!

We can also recommend a similar beverage, the "Violet Drink," which is as purple as its name suggests. Its berry refresher base is maybe a better option for you if you prefer a stronger combination. You won't regret drinking either of them, though!

4. Iced Passion Tango Tea Lemonade

This refreshing lemonade has many recipes, and this one is close enough

Lemonade is one of the most ordered drinks in bars for anyone who likes neither coffee nor alcohol. The ingredients of this lemonade are hibiscus, apple, and lemongrass. Licorice root and sugar are so delectable that it spices up the whole taste!

So what makes this lemonade "passionate?" The secret ingredient is probably its red color, which wakes up your senses. Moreover, "Tango" sounds exactly like passion, like a dance that'll make you move to the sweetest melodies!

3. Youthberry White Tea

Here's a detailed recipe that'll show you the ingredients

Have you heard of white tea before? It's a bit more of an odd choice, but it's even better than black tea, in our opinion. Starbucks makes some white tea as well, so if you feel like drinking tea there, Teavana's Youthberry is actually a brand we would recommend.

There are many reasons why Youthberry should be on your list. Youthberry is dairy-free and has fewer calories, so it's among the most quality Starbucks beverages. Moreover, it's actually better for boosting your health than an average cup of coffee.

2. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Does this tea seem easy to make?

Maybe coffee is the most prominent Starbucks trend, but in case you didn't know, they do have a huge offer when it comes to tea! Black, white, hot, cold… You choose what your favorite is. And honestly, all of them are great in their own way. We suggest Iced Chai Tea Latte as one of their best. What makes this tea amazing are its "ambivalent" ingredients! Cinnamon and clove make it so flavorous, but milk and ice come as a cherry on top afterward. If you're a fan of iced tea, you found your next favorite for sure.

1. Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate

Maybe you can make this one at home as well

Hot chocolate always sounds like a good choice in any bar. However, it's especially cool and pleasant at Starbucks, primarily if you aren't a fan of coffee! Nevertheless, you probably ask yourself whether there is any difference between a "regular" hot chocolate and the Starbucks one.

Well, you should try it to see if Starbucks' hot chocolate is a "special snowflake," and it definitely depends on your taste. Starbucks makes its hot chocolate very dark and strong. Actually, it contains velvety cocoa. Its flavor is "rich" also because it's covered with sweet whipped cream. Choose your favorite hot chocolate from their menu!

Unlike what Burger King offers, all these drinks are authentic for Starbucks, and they look and smell good, so feel free to try them anytime at your closest brand's bar! It depends only on which flavor is your favorite and what you're willing to try.

If you tried and liked any of these beverages on our top ten list, let us know! Is Frappuccino already too much coffee for you, so you prefer their hot chocolate? Or do you'd rather try lemonade?
