Updated: Aug. 15, 2023

It's still summer at Starbucks! Here's a look at some classic Starbucks cold drinks with a cool twist.

It’s prime Starbucks summer menu season! Not long after Dunkin’ announced its summer treats and Dairy Queen shared its summer Blizzards, we heard news about brand-new summer drinks at Starbucks. And now, in the last few weeks of summer, Starbucks is celebrating with the debut of an all new Summer Remix menu. Summer can’t end until I have a Blended Iced Black Tea Lemonade in hand.

What’s on the Starbucks Summer Remix Menu?

The Summer Remix menu features a classic Starbies trio of customer-favorite cold drinks with cool, remixed twists. Get ready for some limited-time cold drink goodness that will make you never want summer to end.

What Else Is On the Starbucks Summer Menu?

Starbucks marked the start of summer with some enticing treats. I mean, seriously, this Starbucks summer drinks lineup might be the most refreshing yet.

White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew

First, the all-new White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew. I know we all love iced coffee, but cold brew has been taking over lately, and this Starbucks creation seems like one of the best takes I’ve seen. The drink features Starbucks’ signature cold brew topped with white chocolate macadamia cream cold foam and toasted cookie crumbles, and is sweetened with rich macadamia syrup. You can bet I’ll be ordering a grande at least twice a week.

Prefer something a little mintier? The ‘bucks has added a chocolate java mint treat to the menu—the Chocolate Java Mint Frappuccino. This new frap features a blend of roast coffee and sweet chocolate along with some minty flavoring and Frappuccino chips, topped with a mocha sauce, whipped cream and chocolate cookie mint sprinkle topping. This seriously is the Starbucks version of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and we are certainly here for it.

Frozen Lemonade Starbucks Refreshers

Nothing says summer like lemonade, and Starbucks has us covered with the release of their new Frozen Lemonade Refreshers! The chain has released three frozen lemonade versions of some of their most beloved refreshers—Strawberry Açaí, Pineapple Passionfruit and Mango Dragonfruit.

The invention isn’t exactly new. Since 2012, customers and baristas alike have experimented with refreshers to create their own chilly frozen lemonade refreshers by adding coconut milk, lemonade or blending with ice. Now, however, Starbucks solidifies those experiments as a menu reality. And we’re already obsessed with what’s bound to be a beloved summer favorite.

Bumblebee Cake Pop

Of course, it’s not a coffee break without a treat. Starbucks added a brand-new Bumblebee Cake Pop to the lineup, which is as adorable as it sounds. This cake pop takes vanilla cake and combines it with a smooth buttercream dipped in some sweet yellow chocolaty icing. And of course, it features a precious bumble bee design! Perfect for the summer season.

Don’t feel like going out? Learn how to make Starbucks’ brown sugar shaken espresso or Green Tea Frappuccino at home. Or, customers can pick up the new Starbucks Green Apron Blend—a Starbucks blonde roast with dashes of Honeybell orange and graham crackers.
