Sweeten Up Starbucks' Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew With A Few Add-Ins

Just when you think your favorite cold Starbucks drink can't get any sweeter, a new hack appears. Such is the case with Starbucks' Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew, an already deliciously decadent, smooth, and refreshing drink order that is ready to get dressed up upon command.

If you appreciate the subtle nutty taste that Starbucks' Almondmilk already provides, you'll appreciate the sweet enhancement of a few extra pumps of vanilla syrup. When topped with a pillowy cloud of vanilla sweet cream cold foam and finished with a drizzle of honey, this variation on the Honey Almondmilk recipe — a Honey Bee Cold Brew — hits all the right notes for an afternoon pick-me-up or a late morning order. This cold drink is so good that after tasting the first sip, you may be asking yourself why you didn't order the next size up, and your colleagues will be envious of your Starbucks ordering prowess.

Switching up your coffee drink orders

You may have watched someone order a Honey Bee Cold Brew on Instagram or TikTok, or perhaps your obsession with navigating the secret menus of Starbucks have you intrigued. Either way, this cold drink variation has been making the rounds on social media for good reason, and knowing how to instruct your barista to put together this treat will have you looking like a well-informed caffeinated customer. 

To turn up the volume of sweetness, consider topping your drink with the Toasted Honey Topping found at Starbucks stores. For colder days or to satisfy cravings for smooth, warm drinks, a similar recipe can be applied to your dairy-free latte. Simply order a vanilla latte made with Starbucks' Almondmilk, upgrade the order with vanilla syrup, then top the recipe with your drink garnishes of choice: Cream, cinnamon, honey, or chocolate for an added touch of rich sweetness. With a bit of creativity, your usual order for your local coffee shop barista may never look the same again.
