Sipping Saturday - Starbucks Cold Buster

It's cold season - ew. A couple of week ago I caught a cold and, curious, googled around to see if there was a drink perfect for this situation. Turns out there is. On Starbuck's hidden menu is something called the "cold buster". According to, this drink is made with steamed lemonade, jade citrus mint tea, peach tranquility tea, honey, and peppermint.

Pros: This definitely works to clear your sinuses. The mint especially helps clear thing up, and the tea is soothing for a sore throat.

Con: The steamed lemonade made this drink a bit sour, so I couldn't finish it. Mint and lemon are also a weird combination. Perhaps just getting the teas would be better next time.
From the outside, it looks pretty much like any other Starbucks drink.

But look how pretty the tea bags are!

Have you ever tried something off of the Starbucks secret menu? Or, do you have a better Starbucks drink to bust a cold? I'd love to hear about it!
