#ThatKnoxvilleGirlDrinks @starbucks — what I like to call a — Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day Drink! 💕 IT WAS DELISH!! 💗🍓 It’s a Venti Cold Brew with White Mocha, Raspberry, + Strawberry Purée Cold Foam 😍 Here’s how I ordered: _ Venti cold brew 💕 2 pumps raspberry 2 pumps white mocha Cold foam made with strawberry purée Topped with chocolate curls (my location was out so I subbed in mocha drizzle) _ I’d add an extra pump of raspberry + white mocha if you like it extra sweet. An iced Venti drink normally has 6 pumps of something if that helps gage your sweetness level. 🍓💓❤️ _ . . . . #thatknoxvillegirl #knoxville #tennessee #starbucks #starbucksdrinks #starbuckscoldbrew #cameradrinksfirst #coffeeislife #coffeecoffeecoffee #coldfoam #foodielife #foodielife #knoxfoodie #coffeeloversclub #coffeeloversunite
Keep in mind Starbucks baristas aren’t trained on the secret menu. To request a Strawberry Cold Brew, make sure you have the recipe available at the register. Here’s what Starbucks baristas really think of your secret menu order.
How Much Is the Strawberry Cold Brew?
Well, a Venti Salted Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew costs around $4.75. That said, the Strawberry Cold Brew includes flavor additions, as well as strawberry puree in the foam, so you may be looking at a steeper price for this secret menu drink.

Bonus: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew Recipe
This Starbucks secret menu drink is super sweet and indulgent! To order a Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew, start by asking for a Venti Cold Brew. Then ask for four pumps of mocha syrup and two pumps of white mocha syrup. Add on some cold foam with strawberry puree mixed in, and top everything off with a mocha cookie crumble topping.
If you want to order a smaller size, you can modify the recipe simply by asking for less mocha syrup.

What Does the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew Taste Like?
The cold brew itself has a high caffeine concentrate, so you still get that coffee taste, and the light and refreshing quality of the brew pairs well with the sweeter flavors of the strawberry puree and mocha syrup. I didn’t want a drink that was too sweet, so I ordered three pumps of the mocha syrup instead of four, and only one pump of the white mocha. This slight modification proved to be a good decision—the drink wasn’t overly sweet—and it tasted exactly like a caffeinated chocolate-covered strawberry

As a barista myself, I always tend to reach for drinks with slightly less sugar and a higher caffeine content; my go-to order is a simple iced vanilla latte with oat milk and three shots of espresso, or a plain cold brew. I usually don’t crave drinks with caramel drizzle or chocolate syrup, but when I do, I really crave them. I’d order this again!
How Much Is the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew?
If you’re used to ordering Starbucks’ plain Cold Brew or other no-frills drinks, be warned that all of the additional toppings and add-ins will raise the price of your beverage. For a Venti Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cold Brew, I ended up paying $6.44.
