ACPR Loves Starbucks
As all PR girls know, sometimes you need a little something *extra* to help fuel the hustle. Around these parts, we like to think of caffeine as our secret weapon for GSD. Whether it’s straight up coffee, tea, or something else entirely (you know who you are, secret drink menu orderer), we don’t see any shame in admitting that we’re in a full fledged love affair with one rather large coffee company that’s based out of Seattle. Starbucks, this one goes out to you. We see you, we love you, and we thank you for keeping us going.

Grande Early Gray Tea Latte with almond milk and no water or sweetener
Until about two months ago, my order would have been a Grande Almond Milk Latte. But alas, I’m on a break from coffee. Wah wah. While the barista may have to repeat my new drink order back to me three times, I’m all about getting exactly what I want (no water)!

Grande Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade
I don’t often stray from my classic English breakfast tea, but there’s something about Starbucks’s lemonade tea in the summer that’s so refreshing. My current favorite is the Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade (with no added sugar!) as a little afternoon pick me up.

The Eye Opener: a grande black coffee with a shot of espresso, and if time permits, 3 shakes of cinnamon on top!
This is my go-to considering Starbucks does not offer or administer espresso IV’s to the blood stream! As you all know, I’m a black coffee junkie. I learned the cinnamon-on-top trick during my grad school days when I wanted to “change” things up!

Venti Pink Drink with light ice and no strawberries
My drink order changes with the seasons, but spring and summer are all about the Pink Drink! This little gem is part strawberry acai juice, part coconut milk, and tastes like a dream. I like to pretend it’s healthy, but it’s probably not — don’t tell me the calorie count, because in this case ignorance truly is bliss. There’s just a hint of caffeine from green coffee so it’s perfect for a little pick me up, especially if you’re sensitive to caffeine (hello jitters). Aside from getting married, the highlight of my year is definitely the fact that the baristas at my local Starbs now know my name and exactly how much ice to put in my drink.

Mango Dragonfruit Refresher
I’ve always been an iced coffee with almond milk lady, but summer is finally here (yay)! During the sunshiney months, I like to go for something that kinda makes me feel like I’m on the beach…even when I’m just driving to work. It’s also pretty and pink, which never hurts!

Venti Iced Coffee with almond milk and no sweetener
I’m pretty boring… I don’t drink coffee very often, but when I do, I go BIG (as in size, not as in excitement). This is the perfect pick-me-up, as it’s not too sweet and just tall enough to get me going.
Amber, Public Relations Intern
Grande Iced Vanilla Chai with light ice
I am the ultimate Starbucks fangirl, meaning I’m there on the regular (#basic and proud). I have tried and loved a lot of their drinks throughout the past 6 years of being a Rewards member, but this one is def my ultimate favorite. It’s just sweet enough to satisfy my cravings, but also simple and easy to customize. Trust me – this one never disappoints!
