This one really shouldn't be a challenge, but somehow we're sure you'll get it wrong. Tea, coffee, and milk. Should be simple...right?

2. Cafe Sua Da (Thai iced coffee)

The majority of your customers won't be able to pronounce it...so you might want to call it Thai coffee. Or just rename it; we're sure you can think up something uniquely Starbuck-ian to call it. And it's iced! None of that pesky microfoaming that has your flat white all messed up!

3. Bicerin (Italian Coffee)

Ironically, the Bicerin is a drink you could actually pull off! Sweet almost to the point of sickly...it'll fit right in! Although...the "almost whipped" cream might present a challenge. What the heck...just use whipped cream. It's not like authenticity is important, anyway!

4. Cafe Bombon

Okay, this drink is so easy even YOU can't screw it up! Well...you shouldn't be able to. Unless you try to make this Spanish drink in a grande size. That will be a problem.

5. Mexican Coffee

Since an actual Cafe de Olla is out of the question, why don't you try your hand at a simplified version you might actually be able to get right! It's super easy...really, Starbucks!

6. Affogato

It's about time you added true dessert coffees to your menu, Starbucks. And the affogato is the perfect starting point for your new line of dessert beverages. And because it has a great name, you can charge twice as much for it!

7. Viennese Coffee

Sure...it's supposed to have alcohol in it. But why should that stop you?

8. Cambodian Coffee

For real, though, Starbucks. You can make this drink. And you can even make it in your ridiculous sizes. And since your to-go cups aren't see through, it won't even matter that you didn't make the pretty layers like your supposed to!

Alright, Starbucks. Here's our last-ditch effort to help you out. THIS is a drink you can do. And do well. And even if you screw it up, it will be delicious. Maybe not traditional...but delicious!
