Starbucks Secret Menu: The Coldbuster
It’s flu season, and I think it’s safe to say that we all hate the sniffling, sneezing, and congestion that comes with it. The Coldbuster, also known as “The Medicine Ball” will sooth sore throats and sinuses should the unfortunate come your way.
It incorporates a handful of cold remedies, all put together in a steaming hot cup of tea. So if you’re feeling under the weather, give this remedy a try.
**With the change to Teavana Tea instead of the old Tazo teas, we recommend subbing the Refresh and Calm Tea Bags with Peach Tranquility & Jade Citrus Mint.
Here’s the recipe:
- Venti Cup w/ a bag of Jade Citrus Mint and a bag of Peach Tranquility
- Add half hot water and half steamed lemonade
- Add a little honey for its anti-microbial effects
- Optional: Add a pump of peppermint
Barista and recipe creator, Matthew L. recommends sipping the drink while it is as hot as you can handle, as it will be the most soothing when hot. Make sure not to burn yourself though, drink at the temperature you feel comfortable with.
