Every Starbucks barista is about to throw their black hat at me for giving you this information…
Did you know that if you order a cold beverage, you can get your ice on the side?
That’s right. Anytime you order your Iced Teas, Iced Lattes, Refreshers, or Iced Caramel Macchiatos, ORDER THAT ICE ON THE SIDE!
You can get a full 12, 16, or 24 ounces of actual drink, and pour it over ice yourself.
Will you annoy the barista? Yes. Will you get your money’s worth of drink? Also yes.
This is a secret that not many people have caught onto, but it’s a thing!
If you feel embarrassed to order your drink this way (which you totally shouldn’t, by the way), you can always order on the app.
They call it mobile ordering, and you just go in and pick up your drink when it’s ready. You don’t even have to say anything … except Thank You.
They aren’t on the official Starbucks menu, but you just have to ask.
