Barista tips for Starbucks cold coffee

Ristretto shot

If you love that Iced Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso, skip the espresso shot and try a ristretto. Then, add a little drizzle of caramel sauce. Those flavors of malt and almondmilk are the perfect little treat to the day.

Milk Chocolate twist

While many people love a white chocolate mocha, sometimes that option is a little sweet. If you prefer milk chocolate, try half regular chocolate sauce and half white chocolate sauce for a iced milk chocolate mocha.

Sweeter cold brew

The smoothness of a cold brew coffee is always a delightful sip. For another option, turn it into almost a dessert coffee with some white chocolate sauce and a touch of coconutmilk.

Jolt of caffeine

If you love that Blonde Caffe Americano, but the day needs a little more caffeine, You can always ask for an extra shot. The beverage still has the classic crema, but a little more energy in the sip.

Bring a little fruitiness to the sip

If you would like to bring a little fruitiness to that caramel macchiato, you can do that. For example, transform that caramel macchiato with vanilla syrup and a pump of raspberry syrup.

Satisfy that sweet tooth

If you love that Salted Caramel Cream Cold Brew, you can make it a little nutter with an easy twist. Consider switching the caramel syrup for white mocha and toffee nut.
