But first, a few ground rules:While you might be able to order drinks not found here, please note that this is limited to items that specifically appear on the in-store Starbucks menu boards. The list will be updated frequently to reflect menu changes.I"ve included the hot and iced versions of drinks (such as the coffee) only when Starbucks lists both on its menu. Otherwise this ranking would be very long and very boring.I didn"t customize the drinks in any way, so that I could experience them as Starbucks intended.All the drinks" nutritional info is based on a 16-ounce Grande size.

3. Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken EspressoNutritional info: 120 calories, 13 grams sugar
Plain old oat milk is delicious in coffee. But the oat milk that Oatly produces is next-level, and it’s an ideal pairing for Starbucks java. If you’ve never tried Oatly before, expect waves of creaminess that don’t overpower the strong coffee and brown sugar notes with a hint of cinnamon. We dare you to find a non-dairy milk aftertaste in this drink, one that’s ruined many an iced almond or soy milk latte. With only 13 grams of sugar and 255 milligrams of caffeine (that’s about 2.5 cups of drip coffee!), this drink squarely fits in the category of Perfect Afternoon Drink to Make Sure You Don’t Fall Asleep During Your Boss’s Mandatory 4 pm Zoom.
2. Pumpkin Cream Cold BrewNutritional info: 250 calories, 31 grams sugar
“It"s very popular,” the barista said to me. This was confirmed when two people picked them up at the bar ahead of me. And it lives up to the hype. I was worried it’d both smell and taste like a pumpkin Yankee Candle, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The pumpkin flavor comes from two ingredients: a spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves, and the pumpkin cream cold foam, which is layered above the cold brew coffee that makes up the majority of the drink. The cold foam has just enough pumpkin flavor to make you feel like it’s fall, but not enough where it completely overpowers the coffee. You can taste the smooth cold brew, and the finish is all coffee. It’s an ice cold take on a fall classic; a coffee drink fully reimagined for the Starbucks lover who drinks cold brew year-round. And it’s one of the best drinks the company has ever put out.

1. Caffè MochaNutritional info: 360 calories, 35 grams sugar
Ooo, adult hot chocolate! I want to fill my bathtub up with it, cover myself in marshmallows, and spend the day... sitting in the tub eating marshmallows. Is this drink a movie on Cinemax at 2 am? Because it has positively sinful mocha notes. And it’s the best dang drink at Starbucks right now.
