    When life gives you lemons, what should you do?

    Let’s face it, the recent years feel like they’ve been handing out way more than everyone’s fair share of lemons and there are always a lot of negative things to focus on. To give you a break from things for a while, let’s talk about lemonade.

    Seems random?

    For a lot of folk, there’s nothing more nostalgic than the taste of fresh lemonade on a hot summer’s day. Maybe you were that kid, growing your own business by selling it on a street corner or maybe you remember your grandmother pouring you a glass when you rushed in from playing outside.

    Lemonade is inherently fun, playful, and tastes like summer in liquid form. For me, nothing makes me feel more carefree and child-like than enjoying a fresh glass of the stuff every year when spring finally arrives.

    I used to think Starbucks only really did coffee-based options and maybe the occasional chai tea. It’s only recently I discovered that they not only have their own blend of lemonade but they also have a whole range of lemonade-based drinks, suitable for any summer mood.

    Here are ten Starbucks lemonade drinks, some with caffeine, and some without. I’ve included the basic nutritional information for a grande option but please bear in mind that these values will change with different sizes of drinks.

    As an extra treat, I’ve also included three secret menu items and some common FAQs to tell you everything you need to know about the Starbucks lemonade drinks.
