Ok, so this is sort of my favourite Starbucks beverage. By sort of, I mean that I tweak it up. I am one of those weird customers who comes up to the till and asks for a bizarre order that leaves the barista raising one eyebrow and rethinking his/her choice to work there.
Anyway, this is what I ask for: a Shaken Iced Tea Lemonade (sometimes I don’t bother with the lemonade) with equal parts passion, green, and black tea. So 1/4 each of each tea and lemonade, or 1/3 of each tea. No sweeteners. It’s fan-freaking-tastic. Trust me. The passion iced tea, I find, is a little too sweet on its own, so you get the stronger kick from the black tea and the clean vibe from the green tea. And the lemonade adds some sweetness to it, and a citrus twist, whenever I’m in the mood for that.
Try it out if you’re even in the mood for a cool drink from Starbucks, but don’t want to consume a plethora of calories. Or try it out if you feel like momentarily baffling the employees. Don’t worry, they don’t get angry, just intrigued!
