Do You Love Starbucks as Much as I Do?

November 3, 2013 in I Adore What I Love

I love Starbucks. Like, I really loveee Starbucks.  And although I drink it on the daily, my favorite season to enjoy it is during the fall.  Obviouslyyyy.  Lately it seems like my favorite season to do anything is in the fall because I just freaking love the fall.  But come summer, I’ll probably sit here and tell you that summer is my favorite season to drink the ‘bucks because there’s nothing like sipping on a delicious, refreshing iced cup of joe sitting outside under the warm sun.  True. That’s very true, but for now, I’m sticking to my story that enjoying sbux in the fall is the best.

[one-half-first]Here’s the thing though, I’m not your typical fall Starbucks drinker.  For one, my go-to drink for years now is a Venti Decaf Americano.  Do you know what an Americano is?  To get basic, it’s espresso and water and I’ve always liked the consistency more than your average cup of coffee brew.  I’ve been drinking it for years and no matter what the season, I rarely venture into other realms within Starbucks land.  Secondly, I don’t love their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.  I’d totally rather have their classic Chai Tea Latte with skim milk. – which is usually a weekend treat for myself.  Yummmmm.  To me, that’s the best!  And because I love it so much, when they came out with the Chocolate Chai Tea Latte this year, I was super excited!  However, when I tried it I was still not as impressed as the classic version sans chocolate.  Anyways, the point of this story is that although I’m not a fan of those famous fall “fancy” drinks, I have crafted a new favorite that I’ve literally been craving every morning…. you ready for it?

One Venti Decaf Nonfat Peppermint Latte, PLEASEEE.

Ohh Mahh Gaddd.  You must try it!  So delish, especially if you are a peppermint aficionado like I am. Because yes, you already know this, but

Then I add one Splenda. Perfection.  The only thing I’m wondering now is why the heck didn’t I think of this concoction sooner?

Better late than never, I guess… :)  And fyi – I don’t drink caffeine.  You can order yours anyway you like it.  I give you permission, ha!
