We’re already living the #hustle life from Monday to Friday so when Friday rolls around, we’re already excited for the weekend. Well, TGIF has just gotten a lot better with the Starbucks 1-for-1 promo where you can buy 1 drink and get the other free. It’s a 1-day only event from 5pm – 8pm on Friday (9 Aug).

Starbucks drinks are considered a luxury to splurge on due to their higher-than-average prices, so take this chance to get your fill without worrying about your budget. Just ajak your friends for a pre-weekend hangout session and you’ll all be able to enjoy a great cuppa coffee while chatting about your week.

A menu full of options

For those of us who aren’t regulars, stepping into a Starbucks can be pretty overwhelming when you’re looking at their extensive menu. That doesn’t mean you should pass on joining their happy hour though, as we’ve compiled a list of fan-favourite drinks. 

If you’re not yet well-acquainted with the taste of coffee and would prefer something sweet on your palate, you can have a go at the Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino.

A latte is also a popular choice for many and you can either opt for a Caffe Latte or Hazelnut Latte. This is a good option for those who want a mild-tasting beverage for the evening.

Matcha has become a staple flavour for desserts and beverages in recent years, so Starbucks’ Green Tea Cream and Matcha Blended Cream are great for those who just can’t get enough of the taste.

Americano is the classic coffee drink and is sure to give you a good pick-me-up from your long week at work.

Starbucks’ happy hour for tomorrow will be from 5PM – 8PM, so you can head over right after work or choose to have your dinner first. Do note that this promotion is available at all outlets except for the one at Sunway Lagoon. But we’re sure it won’t be a problem to those staying around the water theme park as there’s a Starbucks in nearly every corner in Klang Valley. 

It’s always nice to have a little treat for yourself, so grab a friend and get yourselves some nice drinks to celebrate the upcoming long weekend.
