Add flavor to your favorite. If you like your coffee to be sweet, try a syrup flavor in your drink for a small extra charge. Here are the syrup choices:
Vanilla: The most popular syrup, the fragrant vanilla bean was made for coffee.
Caramel: Deliciously rich when combined with espresso.
Almond: So sweet, toasty and tasty.
Hazelnut: Adds a smooth, nutty taste to your drink.
Simple: A light delicate sweetener.
Raspberry: The perfect accompaniment to a caffe mocha or a hot chocolate.
Valencia: A dash of citrus to spice up any drink.
Irish cream: Great for an Espresso Frappuccino blended beverage.
Sugar-Free Vanilla: The guilt-free alternative to Starbucks' most popular syrup.

Milk is where you can be most expressive. Lowfat, nonfat, steamed, foamed, wet, or dry – there are so many, delicious, creative ways to take milk in your drink. Here are the milk choices:
Whole: Whole milk is the Starbucks "regular” unless patrons tell them otherwise.
Nonfat (skim) milk: Cutting fat? Request this slimmer alternative.
2% (or lowfat) milk: This option is halfway between whole and nonfat.Soymilk: Can't or don't drink milk but still want to enjoy a Latte or Caramel Macchiato.?Just ask the barista to substitute soymilk for a small extra charge.
