Starbucks has quickly become my favorite coffee house. As part of my challenge over the next 2. 5 years, I plan on trying every specialty drink they have on the menu. Let's face it though, the menu is always changing so I am going by what is on the menu at the time of writing this. Some of them admittedly do not seem to be my cup of tea (pun intended), but thanks to their new short (8 oz) size, I don't feel so bad about trying out the iffy ones. As I try a flavor, it gets crossed off the list below. I will rate them on a 3 star rating scale: 1 = Did not like it, 2 = It was okay, but wouldn't go out of the way to order again and 3 = Liked it/Loved it, would purchase again. Follow along as I spend a lot of coffee money.
