The Starbucks secret menu contains many colorful (and delicious!) hidden drinks. Here's what to order!
Wendy’s Inspired Frosty Frappuccino
This drink combines chocolate and caffeine in the best way. Order a Grande Mocha Frappuccino, and ask for it to be made with heavy whipping cream. Add two pumps of vanilla syrup and mocha drizzle, and voila! You’ve got a Frosty with a kick.
Key Lime Pie Refresher
You can make a Key Lime Pie, or you can make things easier by ordering up this Key Lime Pie Refresher. Order a Venti Kiwi Starfruit Refresher with no inclusions, add light coconut milk, then ask for vanilla sweet cream cold foam with one pump of funnel cake syrup blended in. Don’t forget the caramel crunch topping!
This tropical beauty was created by Holly Walker, who is an absolute Starbucks mastermind.

To create the ruby hues, ask for one pump of raspberry syrup and light passion tea to be poured on top of the drink.

Nothing says summer like strawberry cobbler! Order a Venti Iced Green Tea, and ask for it to be shaken with coconut milk and strawberry puree. Add 2 pumps of brown sugar syrup and top with brown sugar cold foam and toasted honey topping.
It’s like a pina colada, but prettier! Order a Venti Pink Drink with no inclusions, add 4 pumps of pineapple ginger syrup, and top it off with vanilla sweet cream cold foam with 2 pumps of pineapple ginger syrup and strawberry puree blended in.
Minnie Mouse Frappuccino
We love our Disney Parks copycat recipes, but this one’s another pink-hued original courtesy Totally the Bomb. Make like a Mouse and order up a Grande White Mocha Cream Frappuccino and ask for light strawberry puree, one scoop of java chips and one scoop of dragon fruit inclusions. Finish it off with some mocha cookie crumble topping.
Honey Peach Freeze
We’re feeling REAL peachy about this pairing. Order up a Venti Blended Lemonade with peach juice and a splash of guava juice. Ask your barista to strip up the inside of the cup with agave, then top with vanilla sweet cream foam and toasted honey topping. The best part? This tastes like summer no matter the season.

Orange Dreamsicle Float
DQ just brought back its Dreamsicle Dipped Cone, but if you prefer your creamsicle in drink form, you’ll love this one. Order a Tall Vanilla Bean Frappuccino in a Venti cup, get a bottle of orange juice from the Grab and Go section, and ask your barista to fill the cup to the third line with orange juice. Add the Vanilla Bean Frapp on top of the orange juice, top with vanilla sweet cream cold foam, and finish it off with whipped cream.
P.S. You can’t bring your own food and drink into the ‘Bucks, so you have to buy the orange juice at the cafe!
