Girl, be prepared to walk miles around your College campus. This is just a given. You know what will make life that little bit easier? Starbucks obvs. At this point, it’s a self-diagnosed addiction for us. So, if you’re looking for the caffeine injection you need with a twist, we have you covered. We have rounded up our fave Starbucks drinks to put a pep in your step for College.

STARBUCKS DRINKS TO TRY AT HOME

SKITTLES FRAPPE

Starbucks baristas are sharing how to get the secret menu item, the Skittles Frappe at home. Only make this if you are a self-certified sweet tooth. All you need is a strawberry + creme flavored frappuccino, and just add a few pumps of vanilla syrup, along with a pump of raspberry syrup to experience the sugar overload.

THE CHARLIE FRAPPE

Don’t worry about it, it’s completely normal to be obsessed with a 16-year-old dancer on TikTok. We certainly are. To make this drink at home, all you need is a cold brew. Add in three pumps of caramel syrup and whole milk. So sorry, the Renegade dance isn’t included.

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP FRAPPE

If you’re lounging in your Christmas pajamas and don’t feel like leaving your bed, we don’t blame you. Why not get creative and make a Starbucks-inspired double chocolate chip frappe at home. Add ice, milk, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, vanilla, and sugar to a blender. Once blended, pour into a glass, and don’t forget the extra chocolate syrup. Top with your fave whipped cream and bobs your uncle.

THE PINK DRINK

Thanks to James Charles, we now have the most famous item on the Starbucks drinks menu – The Pink Drink. While this Starbucks drink still isn’t on the menu in the UK, you can easily order the pink drink by buying strawberry acai, coconut milk, pineapple + ginger syrup, and don’t forget strawberries and a scoop of ice to a blender for a refreshing, feed ready drink.

APPLE PIE FRAPPE

If you want something to get you into the Christmas spirit. This secret menu item is it. To make the apple pie frappe at home, get a frappuccino and add two pumps each of cinnamon dolce syrup and caramel, add heavy cream and apple juice, then blend. We’ve just hooked you up with a dessert you can drink, and by the way, whipped cream isn’t optional.

VIOLET DRINK WITH COLD FOAM

If you’re in the mood for something to refresh the feed and the taste buds, the violet drink with cold foam is where it’s at. To make this drink at home, all you need is hibiscus tea, your fave berry juice, coconut milk, frozen blackberries, and ice to blend. This Starbucks drink is a real winner for the gram.
