Update on Raspberry Syrups At Starbucks

Starbucks has discontinued the Raspberry syrup options in the drinks they serve. This list was designed and published when Raspberry was available so we have decided to leave this page published in the hope that they will bring back this delicious syrup flavor!

Raspberry drinks are making a big comeback in recent years - and I am absolutely here for it! 

With so many secret menu items, it can be hard to know what raspberry drinks are best. Plus, they're expensive - you wanna make sure you get one you'll like.

In this guide, I'll introduce you to some of the best Starbucks raspberry drinks.

1. Raspberry Mocha Eggnog  

Starbucks Iced Egg Nog Latte

White mocha, raspberry, and eggnog? Sign me up! 

This secret recipe isn't found on any standard Starbucks menu, but it's definitely worth checking out. 

This raspberry eggnog drink works well because it combines the rich flavor of white chocolate with tart raspberry to give you a creamy flavor explosion.

It looks and tastes like one of my favorite holiday desserts with a fruity twist - I can't get enough! I love ordering it hot when it's chilly outside for the ultimate cozy vibes.

It’s around 500 calories for this combination with 34 grams of carbs and 30 grams of sugar, so while it could easily become your favorite drink, it's not the best choice if you're on a diet.

How To Order Raspberry Mocha Eggnog
  • Ask for an iced white mocha made with eggnog instead of milk (a common option in most Starbucks). Then ask them to add raspberry sauce with 1 pump for Tall, 2 for Grande, and 3 for Venti. This will give you a creamy red and white drink that’s sweet and tart.

2. Raspberry Iced Tea 

Starbucks Raspberry Iced Tea

Raspberry iced tea is the perfect summer season drink for me. It's fresh, fruity, and always quenches my thirst on a hot day.

I love its bright color and how fresh it smells. Plus, the low caffeine makes this an excellent choice to round out my day as I wind down.

Plus, it's under 35 calories, so you can drink it without compromising your diet. It’s really refreshing, and you’ll be able to get free refills if you have a Starbucks reward card.  

It only has about 8 grams of sugar, and it's one of the best cold raspberry drinks around.  

How To Order Raspberry Iced Tea
  • Ask for half iced green tea and half iced black tea with 3-5 pumps of Starbucks raspberry syrup.

3. Raspberry Lime Refresher

Starbucks Raspberry Lime Refresher

Nothing beats a cool lemonade when the sun is out, and the Starbucks raspberry lime refresher is a great twist to try.

Something about this sweet yet tart combo of raspberry and citrus reminds me of a raspberry mojito - which I am definitely not complaining about!

It’s only about 80 calories and has no caffeine content, so it's great for kids, though it does have over 20 grams of sugar. 

How To Order Raspberry Lime Refresher
  • To order a Starbucks raspberry lime refresher ask for a cool lime refresher (these might only be offered during the summer months).
    Then, ask for 3-5 pumps of Starbucks raspberry syrup and stir it up. This should give you an ice cool refreshing drink with a mix of lime, lemon, and raspberry flavors.
Tips From A Barista: For a more filling drink, you can opt for a crème base but remember to take the lime slices out, or it will curdle!

4. Raspberry Milk Tea 

Starbucks Raspberry Milk Tea

As a strawberry and chocolate milk addict, of course I love this take on Starbucks' milk tea.

The raspberry milk tea is very similar to a fruity milk base of bubble tea[1], but Starbucks doesn’t have the signature boba that you’ll find in other bubble tea brands.  

This creamy and lightly sweet drink reminds me almost of raspberry milk and is so easy to drink. I love ordering some for myself and for my nieces and nephews when they come to visit.

It might not be the healthiest choice at 250 calories and 35 grams of sugar, but it’s proving to be the favorite drink for raspberry lovers. 

How To Order Raspberry Milk Tea
  • To order it, you'll need to ask for an iced black tea made with half and half instead of water. Then, ask for an extra pump of syrup, 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup, and 2 pumps of Starbucks raspberry syrup.

5. Raspberry Caramel Macchiato 

Starbucks Iced Raspberry Caramel Macchiato

A macchiato has been a popular drink with coffee enthusiasts (and me in the morning) for years.  

A caramel macchiato has a caramel syrup and milk foam base, with an espresso poured on top and a caramel sauce topping.

I admit, I had reservations about adding raspberry syrup to my regular Caramel Macchiato - I ended up being pleasantly surprised! 

It gives a rich, sweet coffee that balances out the bitterness of the espresso. The raspberry adds a fruity sweetness that lifts up the flavor profile and prevents it from being too rich.

There are 250 calories, 30 grams of sugar, and 150mg of caffeine in each, so it’s not the healthiest option, but it's a flavor you need to try.  

How To Order Raspberry Milk Tea
  • Ask for a Caramel Macchiato but replace the caramel syrup with Starbucks raspberry syrup. Top with whipped cream and dried fruit chips if available.

6. Iced Raspberry Latte  

Starbucks Iced Raspberry Latte

Everyone loves a Starbucks iced coffee latte when the sun comes out, and the Starbucks raspberry edition is an excellent variation on a classic.

An Iced Raspberry Latte is a lovely way for me to cool down in the summer. It's light, creamy, and sweet - my perfect alternative to a heavy and overly sweet dessert drink.

It gives it a lovely color and a slightly bitter taste from the raspberries to stop it from being overly sweet.  

An iced raspberry latte has about 150 calories and 11 grams of sugar, so it's not the unhealthiest Starbucks drink. 

It has 150mg of caffeine, roughly the same as a regular espresso, and you can customize the milk just like you would with any other latte.  

How To Order Iced Raspberry Latte
  • Ask for a regular iced latte with raspberry syrup flavoring.

7. Raspberry Chocolate Dream Frappuccino 

Starbucks Raspberry Chocolate Dream Frappuccino

Frappuccinos are the modern summer coffee that are like dessert milkshakes. They generally consist of a blended iced coffee with a flavored syrup and topped with cream. 

When I want the ultimate indulgence, I treat myself to a raspberry chocolate dream Frappuccino. 

It marries the flavors of coffee, chocolate, and raspberry in a way that makes it feel more like a dessert than a drink. 

As a chocolate-covered fruit and chocolate truffle lover, this is heaven to me.

This is a light beverage, but it isn’t a healthy drink with over 300 calories and 35 grams of sugar. However, it’s a treat to drink and perfect for satisfying my sweet tooth.  

How To Order Raspberry Chocolate Dream Frappuccino
  • To order this Starbucks Dream Frappuccino, you need to ask for a vanilla bean frappuccino with 2 pumps of raspberry syrup, white mocha sauce, cinnamon syrup, and cream.
    If you want a little extra, ask the barista to drizzle the top with mocha and a half pump of raspberry too.

8. Pink Raspberry Passion 

Starbucks Pink Raspberry Passion Refresher

Passion fruit is a zesty fruit that is so flexible - I love combining it with other flavors for a fun tropical twist! Starbucks' raspberry syrup is a special combo that makes a great alternative to your traditional iced tea. 

Blending passion fruit iced tea with the sweet and slightly tart raspberry syrup makes me feel like I'm drinking a fancy mocktail by the beach. Perfect summer vibes in a cup!

If you aren’t bothered about calories, you can also top with whipped cream to make it even more delicious.  

This drink looks amazing and is under 100 calories (if you keep the cream off). It's also less than 15 grams of sugar, so it's a slightly better option than some other Starbucks drinks.  

How To Order Pink Raspberry Passion
  • Order a passion fruit iced tea and ask them to add 2 pumps of raspberry syrup and blend like a Frappuccino.

9. Chocolate Covered Raspberry Frappuccino  

Starbucks Chocolate Covered Raspberry Frappuccino

When I want to indulge in a delicious and sweet dessert drink, I treat myself to a Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Frappuccino. 

Chocolate covered fruit is the best, so this drink really is the best of both worlds for me!

It's rich and moreish without being overpowering. Plus, the cinnamon dolce syrup adds a little warmth and spice that really brings it all together.

This Starbucks drink is very similar to the Raspberry Chocolate Dream Frappuccino but with a little bit more of a raspberry flavor.

It’s another very indulgent drink that should only be had occasionally, but it’s incredible. If you love sweet Starbucks drinks like me, you'll enjoy this frappuccino.   

How To Order Pink Raspberry Passion
  • Ask for a vanilla bean frappuccino with 2 pumps of raspberry syrup, white mocha sauce, cinnamon syrup, and raspberry cream.
Tips From A Barista: You can order it with regular chocolate syrup, or change it up with white chocolate sauce which pairs really well with the raspberry.

10. Raspberry Cheesecake Latte  

Starbucks Raspberry Cheesecake Latte

When I want a nice, warm, liquid dessert, then this latte does the trick. 

It's smothered in a rich caramel topping, which gives way to the raspberry flavored coffee underneath, giving you all the layers you would expect from a raspberry cheesecake.

The pink and white layers look so cute - very Instagrammable. It even smells fruity, creamy, and sweet!

One of these provides over 400 calories, 40 grams of sugar, and 150mg of caffeine, so it definitely isn't a healthy.

It's more of a special occasion treat rather than every day staple for me (as much as I sometimes wish that I could have it all the time).   

This isn't a light beverage, and it's probably the least healthy drink on my list, but it's really popular with students and younger people.
How To Order Raspberry Cheesecake Latte
  • Ask for a Starbucks latte with whatever milk you'd like. Then, ask for 5 pumps of flan syrup, 3 pumps of cinnamon syrup, and 2 pumps of raspberry syrup.
Tips From A Barista: You can also get caramel whipped cream on the top and coat with extra flan syrup for maximum flavor.

11. Starbucks Raspberry Mojito 

Starbucks Raspberry Mojito Refresher

Mojitos are the ultimate summer drink for me, and while this Starbucks version doesn't have any alcohol, it is packed with flavor.

It’s less than 150 calories, under 20 grams of sugar, and basically 0 caffeine, so it's a good option for kids and works for anyone on a diet.  

When I fancy a light, crisp, summer drink, I always get this.

The sweetness of the raspberry really adds to the flavor and the tartness of the citrus green tea helps keep everything light and refreshing. 

This is sure to be an everyday staple to order in my local Starbucks during the summer season. 

How To Order Starbucks Raspberry Mojito
  • To order it, you'll need to ask for a green tea lemonade with 1 pump of peppermint syrup and 2 pumps of raspberry syrup on a crème base.

Has Starbucks Discontinued Raspberry Syrup?

Yes, Starbucks discontinued raspberry syrup in early 2023. There are currently no official plans to bring back this fruity syrup.

Raspberry has long been a favorite flavor and pairs well with dark, milk, or white chocolate. 

The tart raspberry contrasts with the sweet chocolate to give a more balanced flavor, and it's not as sweet as strawberry can be.   

A personal fave move of mine to order was the White Chocolate Cream Frappuccino and add a couple of pumps of raspberry syrup - I'm gutted!

While some other coffee shops have some raspberry options, they just don't quite hit the same. For now, I think I'll sub in a Monin raspberry syrup and hope it returns soon!

Final Words

When it comes to raspberry drinks, Starbucks really had it all.

I will be mourning the loss of this delicious syrup along with most of TikTok. Rip to my faves Raspberry Milk Tea and Raspberry Mojito - summer won't be the same without you! 

Hopefully this guide has introduced some options that have your mouth watering, and you know which you want to try and replicate from your local Starbucks.
