10 Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks You MUST Try

Ordering at your local Starbucks can be intimidating. You wait in a long line, then you finally reach the register, you still don’t know what you want. You either never come here so you don’t know what’s good or you always end up getting the same thing and want to try something new. The secret menu can be fun to order off of, but from an ex-barista and the rest of the Barista nation, know what is in it before you order. It will save your barista some sanity, and insure you get the correct drink. Also, some drinks/flavorings are seasonal and vary by location, so don’t get upset if you can’t order a PSL in the middle of July…

 

10) Black and White Mocha

Order a mocha and add white mocha sauce to it, it does cost extra, but it is worth it. Starbucks uses bittersweet chocolate in their mocha so the taste of white mocha won’t make the drink too sweet to handle. Try it hot or iced, just make sure you stir it up very well. Don’t forget to top it off with whip and some more mocha drizzle

9) Very Berry Lemonade

Kick up your classic childhood favorite with some juice from your favorite refresher. Ask the barista to do half lemonade and half refresher then shake it over ice. You can keep the fruit in it and serve it how it is, or add some syrup to it and blend it into the perfect slushy. Refreshers may vary by season and store, but there’s always one that you can find to mix into your lemonade.

8) Oreo Frappuccino

Try a white mocha frappuccino and java chips blended into it. It is the perfect contrast of bittersweet chocolate pieces and white mocha to balance the drink. White mocha is all sugar-meaning high calories so you might want to switch to 2% or fat free milk on this one.

7) Snickers Frappuccino

Order a java chip (or double chocolate chip if you don’t want coffee) then ask the barista to add in toffee nut syrup and caramel drizzle to top it off. Tastes just like the real thing! If you’re going for looks on this one, ask for caramel drizzle inside the cup. It will come out with caramel drizzled around the sides, a pretty contrast to the frappuccino.

6) Cream Soda

Starbucks isn’t just for coffee anymore, you can now order soda! Like I said, it varies from place to place, but most locations will carry orange soda or root beer. Choose your preference, then ask for whip cream on top to make it into a soda float!
