Lemonade Drinks at Starbucks

Sweet and tart, lemonade is delicious on its own or when added to other drinks on the Starbucks menu. It’s an easy way to add a fruity, sweet addition to drinks.

The lemonade at Starbucks is made from a concentrate that gets diluted with triple filtered water.

You can’t buy the lemonade concentrate anywhere since it’s by Starbucks and they don’t sell it.

Tips for Ordering Lemonade Drinks

  • Lemonade is great in iced AND hot teas. Try steamed lemonade in hot teas like Mint Majesty, Peach Tranquility, or Jade Citrus Mint. 
  • Add lemonade to a Cold Brew. This is a twist on the Italian tradition of serving lemon wedges with espresso. 
  • Lemonade and strawberry puree are a great pairing. Ask for a couple of pumps of strawberry shaken into your next lemonade.
  • Lemonade shaken with apple juice is a refreshing sweet treat and comes in kids size too.
  • If you find the lemonade a little too tart, order it with extra water. 
  • For secret menu drinks, it’s best to order it in-person, and during a time when they’re not so busy. Tipping is always appreciated by the baristas.
