If you can feel the temperature dropping and hear the declaration of Fall, you know it’s the perfect time to enjoy apple drinks. You can find those pretty much everywhere- starting from your local departmental store to the vending machines on the roadside corners. But, if you value authenticity, what can be better than Starbucks?
Yes, it is good news for everyone reading that Starbucks has some excellent apple drink choices on the menu. Apart from just tea and coffee, you can try these best Starbucks apple drinks and enjoy the weather even more. If you are as excited as we are, let’s get started with some delicious Starbucks apple drinks.
Best Starbucks Apple Drinks
Caramel Apple Spice– The Winter Delight
If you have been under the impression that Starbucks hot beverages are pretty confined to teas and coffees, you might be wrong. Instead, the food giant has a lot more to offer. Caramel Apple Spice is one of Starbucks’ best apple drinks that are neither tea nor coffee.
Caramel Apple Spice is a steamed apple juice mixed with cinnamon syrup that provides a spicy taste to the drink. Then, your barista would top the drink with whipped cream drizzle caramel sauce over it. Altogether, it makes a perfect Starbucks hot beverage for winter!
Moreover, like most other Starbucks drinks, you can customize them as well. You can select the sweeteners as per your preference. Also, if you like the drink or at least the concept, you can try a larger size for the juice.
Caramel Apple Frappuccino- A Wonder from the Starbucks Secret Menu
Caramel Apple Frappuccino is one of the best from Starbucks’ secret menu. First of all, caramel apples have always been emotional and nostalgic. So, the drink became quite popular and holds the same position still.
Caramel Apple Frappuccino is quite a famous drink. Yet, since it is not on the menu, you might have to tell the Barista how to prepare it. If the Barista doesn’t already know, place the order accordingly:
(You can screenshot the area or save the page for further reference).
- Apple Juice goes to the first line,
- Fill to the second line with whole milk
- Three pumps of cream
- Three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup
- Two pumps of carmel
Generally, the drink is often topped with whipped cream.
You can ask the Barista to add Caramel Ribbon Crunch, Caramel Drizzle and leave a lovely Cinnamon Dolce topping for a spicy flavor.
The drink is loved by fans almost everywhere. If it is not what your Starbucks serves, you can be the first one to forward the recipe. But, for one thing, it is a much loved and appreciated recipe.
Apple Crisp Macchiato– The Starbucks Star Apple Drink
Last year only Starbucks launched one of its signature Apple drinks- Apple Crisp Macchiato. It was one of Starbucks’ new launches for the upcoming fall. The drink is available in all stores located in the USA and Canada.
You can enjoy both the hot and cold versions of the drink, both of which are prepared with steamed milk and Starbucks’ signature brewed espresso. Both these drinks also feature Apple Brown Sugar Syrup that hits your taste buds hard unless “yum” comes out naturally.
We loved the Spiced Apple Drizzle, which is again a signature perfection as always expected from Starbucks.
You can, however, try crumbling a waffle on the top to bring a real crisp.
But the magic lies somewhere else. Both the drinks (the hot and the cold version) have the same ingredients but taste different. While the hot version of Apple Crisp Macchiato tastes like an apple pie freshly brought out of the warm oven, the iced version is more complex.
As the coffee and the apple syrup keep mixing, the taste of the iced drink becomes complex. You might even feel like each sip has a different flavor than before.
IF you are finding something new to taste at Starbucks, and if your store has this on their menu, you should try it today!
Apple Pie Frappuccino– The Pie from Secret Menu
The coronavirus pandemic made these past years quite suffering for all of us. If you have missed apple pie at Thanksgiving or Christmas, you can easily replace it with Apple pie Frappuccino at Starbucks- another excellent innovation from the Starbucks Secret Menu.
The best part is that you can actually enjoy this drink whenever you want. So, be it summer, fall, or winter, you just have to walk into the store and greet the Barista with a gentle smile that matches your order.
The drink is quite famous. Still, if you Barista is unaware of the recipe, ask them to follow it: (Snap it if possible)
- The cream base goes to the first line
- The second line receives apple juice
- Add caramel syrup and cinnamon dolce syrup following the below measurement:
- 1 pump for a tall order
- 1.5 for a grande order
- 2 for a venti order.
Frappuccino will be incomplete without whipped cream. Don’t forget to ask your Barista to add that to the top of your drink. Apple pie frappuccino is best enjoyed on chilly and windy days, though.
In any case, there’s no doubt that it will take you back to the family gatherings or childhood memories you have longed for.
We often limit Starbucks choices to typical tea or coffee choices. If you are a true Starbucks fan or willing to go deep into their inventory, you will find outstanding beverages filled with innovation, passion, and nostalgia. These drinks on the list are some of the many you will definitely enjoy.
But, for one thing, everyone who steps into a Starbucks store can be an innovator himself. You can customize your drink, share it on social media, and see how others respond. If you liked today’s discussion, comment and let us know. Till then, stay safe, enjoy these delicious Starbucks apple drinks!
