@beautiful.bibliophile: As I usually like sweeter drinks in the summer, I convert my go-to hot drink (a.k.a Caramel Macchiato) into an Iced Caramel Frappuccino® blended beverage during the warmer months

@thealmachronicle: Starbucks espresso is a year-round staple for me. When the weather turns warmer, I order my favourite Caffè Americano with oat beverage over ice.

@kelsinwonderland: My favourite espresso treat is the Brown Sugar Oat Americano. For summer, it was a complete no-brainer to me to swap it out for an Iced Brown Sugar Oat Shaken Espresso (half sweet, so creamy and smooth)

@thenameisish: On hot days I like to cool down by ordering my favourite Chai Latte over ice, with a shot of espresso. Perfectly sweet and spicy!

@belowtheblonde: My must-have beverage from Starbucks is the Caramel Macchiato, and I love that can order that iced when the temperatures start to rise.

@christianconfidential: For any day in the summer, I am ordering my favourite Starbucks Truth North Blend coffee with ice. Hold the cream but add extra ice. I love that it is the same flavourful coffee, while also refreshing.

@heysarahdarling: I've started getting my beloved Flat White with brown sugar and oat beverage over ice. I can tell this is a pick-me-up that's going to carry me through the hot months!

@lilyyange: My favourite order is usually a Caffe Mocha with salted caramel sauce. When having it iced, I make it Cali style with coconut beverage and some caramel crunch on top!
