A Starbucks Gossip reader asks: Is the barista right about me having to pay double for my Cool Lime Refresher?
The barista is definitely out of line...however, if you also ask for NO WATER, then that's where it can get sticky. For example: you order a trenta, no water, no ice cool lime refresher. This is an entire carton of cool lime and each carton will typically serve anywhere from 12-16 customers. That's $36-$60 in beverages you just ordered, with ONE beverage. Now the barista and manager can/should call you out on it. Clearly, I've delt with this situation....unfortunately.
