The Type Of Starbucks Beverage You Are, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

To exist in modern-day society, you probably have a go-to Starbucks order. Even I, a matcha drinker who is absolutely appalled by the texture of Starbucks' iced green tea lattes, have made my way around the Starbucks menu to find something I like, just so that I don't have to be deprived of caffeine during those desperately early mornings at the airport. It doesn't matter if it's reserved as your last resort or if you have the order automated for store pickup each day before work; you gotta have one. And what type of Starbucks beverage you choose can say as much about you as your zodiac sign does.

Whether you believe in astrology or not, you can't deny the influence it holds. Whichever of the 12 zodiac signs your birth date falls under can be used to identify your various personality traits, characteristics, and values. At any given time in the year, you can use it to foresee any trends, changes, and opportunities you may encounter. Should you have doubts, it doesn't really matter. Regardless of whether it's scientific or not, much like those $4 lattes you pay for daily, your horoscope is there for emotional support. Whatever type of Starbucks drink you choose as your vice is up to you; this is simply meant to demonstrate how different aromas, tastes, textures, and colors can emulate the various qualities of the signs.


Aries will be happy to know that the type of drink they are also just so happens to hold first place on Tasting Table's ranking of the 34 most popular Starbucks drinks. None other than the Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Oat Milk Espresso, this drink is as bold as Aries is known to be. With three shots of blonde espresso, this drink has more caffeine than the average Starbucks order. Shaken with cinnamon and four pumps of brown sugar, not only does the Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Oat Milk Espresso come perfectly mixed — but it's also topped off with creamy oat milk.

Despite the extra espresso, the Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Oat Milk Espresso is surprisingly sweet and balanced. The addition of oat milk adds that creamy balance, proving to the alt-milk conspiracists that not all milk has to come from cows — and no matter if it came from a nut, seed, or grain, it'll taste just as good in your Starbucks drinks. It goes hand in hand with Aries' competitive nature and the sign's drive to prove themselves to others. Much like the Starbucks Iced Brown Sugar Shaken Oat Milk Espresso, the Aries was born to lead and is not the one to doubt — because they'll never fail to prove you, or anyone else, wrong.


Grounded, logical, and dependable, Taurus is the zodiac embodiment of stability. Of all the signs, Taurus is the most likely to order the same Starbucks drink every time. With a tendency to prefer consistency over chaos, the type of Starbucks drink they'd be would have to be predictable. One that, unlike the iced green tea matcha latte, left no room for error. That, combined with their grounded, calm, and uplifting nature, would make Taurus the Starbucks drink equivalent of a Nitro Cold Brew.

Cold and straight up, there's no second guessing when ordering a Nitro Cold Brew from Starbucks. Like your Taurus friend, you always know what you'll get — and you're never left feeling disappointed. Slow-steeped for 20 hours and infused with nitrogen, the Nitro Cold Brew from Starbucks delivers deep coffee flavors with a velvety smooth foam that mingles well with virtually any added flavors or sweeteners. In a similar way, Taurus gets along with just about everybody.

Taurus's cool-calm-and-collected personality complements that of other more flamboyant signs. Just like that, you can add a pump of caramel, vanilla cold foam, mocha, or any of your favorite flavors to a Starbucks nitro cold brew should you ever feel like switching things up because, like a Taurus, the nitro will be sure to balance everything out.


Geminis get a lot of heat in the zodiac community and are often accused of being two-faced — but anyone who would believe that has never truly befriended one themselves. Geminis are social creatures who are known for bringing people together. They're almost childlike in their curiosity and are constantly torn between where, how, and with whom they'd like to spend their time. In fact, it's their constant desire to be in two places at once that is the reason they're symbolized by twins and not because they're duplicitous. It's also why Gemini's Starbucks drink would be the Sour Patch Kid Refresher, and I think the reasoning is obvious.

Just one of the many drinks on the Starbucks secret menu that went TikTok viral, the Sour Patch Kid Refresher is essentially a strawberry açaí lemonade. However, with added pumps of classic and raspberry syrup, along with a splash of passion tea, the drink gets an eye-catching gradient effect — with the bright pink strawberry açaí on the top and the yellow lemonade color on the bottom. The colors are reminiscent of a sunset, and the added sour from the passion tea gives the drink a puckering punch worthy of its sour patch name. Childlike and a bit promiscuous, as the Sour Patch Kid commercials show, it's the perfect representation of a Gemini.


Natural homebodies, most Cancers would probably prefer to enjoy their coffee at home than actually go to Starbucks. Similar to Taurus, they're also creatures of habit — and they do not particularly like change. They like things to be predictable, and surprises aren't their cup of tea. Come to think of it, if Cancer were any type of Starbucks beverage, it'd be just that; tea. While it may be known primarily for its coffee, Starbucks also serves up a line of delicious hot and iced teas — from matcha to mint and peach to mango — but if Cancers could be one, just one, they'd definitely be the Chai Tea Latte.

Like most chai lattes, Starbucks makes it using a chai concentrate made from a base of black tea that's been infused with cinnamon, clove, and other heartwarming spices. It can be served hot or iced and is usually combined with equal parts milk to get a nice balance of sweet and spicy notes. With the origins of chai as a healing ayurvedic beverage more than 5,000 years ago, chai plays into Cancer's love for tradition. Its warm, deep favors are recognizant of Cancer's empathetic nature. Also, Cancers will be happy to know that they can purchase the Teavana Chai Concentrate from Amazon and easily make this drink at home.


Leos are theatrical, and they love to be the center of attention. However, they're notorious for holding themselves and others to relentlessly high standards. Even so, they still manage to make everything look effortless — which is why the type of Starbucks drink they are has to be one the best, but without trying too hard. Considering Leos are associated with the colors gold and yellow and are known for loving luxury, it's only right that Leos be one of the drinks from Starbucks' Oleato line.

While each drink in Starbucks' Oleato line is made with specialty virgin olive oil from Italy, one drink from the collection stands out from the rest: The Oleato Reconstructed. This drink is made using a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil, paired with Starbucks Reserve espresso which is said to be made from the rarest beans Starbucks can get its hands on. To make it extra luxurious, the Oleato Reconstructed is topped off with passionfruit-infused cold foam. It's almost too good to be true, and it's right up a Leo's alley.


Virgos are arguably one of the most organized signs in the zodiac, and they often borderline on perfectionism. In order to stay sane, Virgos must always feel as if they're contributing to something bigger than themselves — and the main way they fulfill that is by being productive. In fact, if you want something done and done right, Virgos are the people to ask. They take great joy in crossing off even the smallest of tasks on their to-do lists. This is why Virgos are the S'mores Frappuccino of the Starbucks menu.

Made from even layers of marshmallow infused whip cream and chocolate sauce, sandwiched underneath a healthy layer of Starbuck's signature creamy blended frappe made of a mixture of coffee, vanilla, and your choice of milk, the S'mores Frappuccino satisfies Virgo's love for organization with visible sheets of ingredients. With them, Virgos can see exactly what ingredients are where. However, it also fulfills their constant quest for perfection by delivering the same flawless flavor experience you get when eating s'mores. Topped off with another dollop of marshmallow whip cream and graham cracker crumbles, the stages of creating a S'mores Frappuccino are reminiscent of the Virgo's love for crossing off tasks, each contributing to a greater cause: the completion of the perfectly layered Starbucks S'mores Frappuccino.


Libras tend to be indecisive, and their personalities are naturally contradictory. Depending on who they're with and how they're feeling, Libras often switch between being introverted and extroverted. Similarly, they can be both spontaneous and strategic — and they seem to always be fighting to maintain both ends of the spectrum. In fact, the very act of structuring their lives in routine is what drives their fear of missing out on impromptu experiences. That fear can impact a lot of their decision-making. So, if Libra were to be any type of drink on the Starbucks menu, it'd have to be one that represented their contradictions but also fed their desire to venture out of the mundane. What better way to do that than to order from the secret menu?

There are seemingly endless drinks on the Starbucks secret menu, whether they're TikTok or pop culture inspired. But if the Libra were to be any one of them, they'd be the Iced Espresso & Matcha Fusion — otherwise known as dirty matcha. As the name suggests, the drink combines two typically alienating ingredients, matcha and espresso, and makes them one. The drink is served in a layered effect, with the green from the matcha on the bottom, your chosen milk in the middle, and a shot of espresso on the top. The colors alone represent the sort of organized chaos that Libras crave, and the sweetness from the matcha balances out the espresso perfectly. It's tasty, a bit contradictory, and adventurous.


Scorpios are famous for being elusive. They tend to hide their passionate, loyal, and flirtatious nature behind a cloak, saving it only for those they come to trust. Very few are ever let in — and the power they exude is as enticing as it is intimidating. While they aren't known to lie, they are very skilled at concealing secrets. Small talk isn't a Scorpio's forte; instead, they like to hit people with deep questions. It's how they are able to garner an understanding of others' internal structures and, in turn, feel a sense of control. For this reason, Scorpios could only be one drink on the Starbucks menu: Another secret menu item, The Dark Side Frappuccino.

Also referred to as the Kylo Ren Frappuccino, The Dark Side Frappuccino is made by adding strawberry purée to the bottom of a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino and topping it off with whipped cream, chocolate mocha drizzle and a touch more of the strawberry purée. The colors are said to represent Kylo Ren's dark suit and red lightsaber, as the character appears in the infamous Star Wars film series — but, just like a Scorpio, the Frappuccino holds much more than meets the eye, and the force is quite strong. Extra chocolatey, with a fruity tartness from the strawberry purée, The Dark Side Frappuccino is enticing enough to convert anyone to the dark side.


Sagittariuses are known for their optimism, especially in the face of change. Of all of the signs in the zodiac, Sagittarius tends to be the most embracing of the many different transitions of life. Whether that be in the literal sense of taking a new job, or in the psychological sense of adopting new philosophies and beliefs, Sagittariuses view the twists and turns of life as opportunities to learn, grow, and expand their worldview. Restless and endlessly curious, Sagittariuses rarely ever play it safe — and that often works out in their favor. In that way, the Starbucks menu is a lot like life. None of us should be afraid of trying something new, especially not if you're a Sagittarius.

If the Sagittarius were any type of Starbucks beverage, it'd be the White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew. As one of the newest additions to the Starbucks summer 2023 menu, the drink is inspired by the taste of the fresh macadamia nuts you'd get if you were vacationing in the tropics. Combined with the chain's smooth cold brew, topped with white chocolate cold foam and sprinkled with salty cookie crumbs, the White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew has a flavor profile that is reminiscent of a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. Creamy, nutty, and balanced with that sweet and salty combo, this drink has everything. With it, it seems the Sagittarius may finally be able to stay in one place, even if it is until they finish their cup.


Guilty for being the "workaholics" of the zodiac, Capricorns are some of the most disciplined of all the signs — and are relentless in pursuit of their goals. While their constant quest for self-advancement may bring them power, it also comes with an intense amount of self-criticism. Capricorns aren't interested in external validation and couldn't be bothered wasting time comparing themselves to others. Instead, their perfectionist mindset often puts them in competition with themselves.

Even so, Capricorns are notorious for overcoming adversity. Represented by the mountain goat, any bumps along the road to achieving what they want are simply that: bumps. They will be overcome. The Capricorn may just need a bit of extra caffeine to do so. Given the "can do" attitude and knack for responsibility, it's safe to assume that Capricorns are already consuming more caffeine than the average person — how else could they get everything done? If a Capricorn were any type of Starbucks drink, they'd be the Blonde Roast.

The Blonde Roast, also known as the Veranda Blend, is Starbucks' most caffeinated option. Served dripped, the Veranda Blend is surprisingly light tasting — especially considering the fact that a venti serving contains about 475 milligrams of caffeine. That's sure to get you on your feet and ready for whatever the day has. There's always the option to ask for sweetener and room for milk if it sounds a bit intense for you. But, to suit the Capricorn, there's nothing more boss-like than a cup of black coffee.


The rarest of all the zodiac signs, it isn't uncommon for Aquariuses to feel like outcasts. But that has nothing to do with their social intelligence. In fact, Aquariuses flourish in social settings. The isolation they experience is of their own doing, and it's often by choice. The Aquarius is known to side with the unpopular opinion and evade anything deemed as "normal," as they believe it to be a sign of intelligence, and it simply bores them. Similarly, Aquariuses are attracted to things they don't understand. Basically, if it defies unspoken rules or disregards conventional standards, the Aquarius will take interest. This means the last thing they'd align with is a basic pumpkin spice latte. That'd be way too typical for their tastes.

If an Aquarius were any type of Starbucks beverage, they'd have to be something much less expected. The drink would need to be one that is somewhat weird yet still sophisticated enough to pass as cool — something like the Pistachio Latte. Served hot or iced, the Starbucks' Pistachio Latte pairs the sweet and cozy flavor of pistachios with espresso and milk, topping it with salted brown butter sprinkles to finish. Just like the Aquarius, who charms others with their peculiarity, the Pistachio Latte is different yet comforting. The only catch is that the drink is seasonal and is typically a recurring favorite on the chain's winter menu. However, that's also somewhat fitting, seeing as Aquariuses constantly struggle between their desire for community and total independence.


Pisces are hard to put a finger on, but that's only because so many of their definitive qualities occur internally. Their behavior can change drastically depending on who they're around, but inside, a Pisces is always dreaming. Intuitive with a sensitivity that borders on intense, Pisces has a tendency to get lost in their thoughts and feelings. For others, their elusiveness can be simultaneously endearing and aggravating, but it's never intentionally so. Pisces are boundless and fleeting; the only thing that grounds them is having a creative outlet for all that inspiration.

Given their mystical intuition, creativity, and connection to the unknown, the Pisces could only be one type of Starbucks beverage: The Unicorn Frappuccino. Only available for a limited time, The Unicorn Frappuccino, was made with "pink powder" and a pump of mango syrup. Then, before pouring the mixture into the cup, the inside of the cup got a swirl of sour blue drizzle. The technique gave the drink a gorgeous layered effect of pink and blue that magically transforms into a deeper purple-pink color as you drink it. It was topped with whipped cream and dusted with pink and sour blue powder. It's a dreamy display that is both sweet and, without any caffeine, and jitter-free — much like our carefree Pisces friends. While you may not be able to order the drink now, the Starbucks secret menu is full of iterations like The Mermaid Frappuccino or The Dragon Frappuccino.
