21 Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks And How To Order Them

21 Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks You Need Try

Did you know Starbucks is actually one of a select few restaurants with a secret menu that was created by dedicated baristas and loyal customers that most don't know even about?

Thanks to being able to customize your drinks, we can create delicious mouth-watering recipes we could've only dreamt of that taste just like some of our favorite sweets like Snickers, Twix and even Nutella!

The secret to ordering these drinks is in the ordering. You can't simply ask for a 'Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino' but instead- you have to be specific with the recipe when it comes to the ingredients.

We went ahead and rounded up all the best secret menu drinks drinks and listed each particular recipe so you'll know how how to order them.

When ordering these items, be respectful of your Barista and don't ask for the item by name, ask for it by the recipe and keep in mind some ingredients are seasonal (as noted) so choose accordingly.

We call this The Starbucks Secret Menu.

1. Orange Creamsicle Frappuccino


I love orange creamsicle. Delicious and refreshing, and the perfect treat to request in drink form. When summertime drinks are available for order, try ordering a Valencia orange refresher blended with the vanilla bean frappuccino base, whipped on top is also a great option with this drink.

Easy to order, but note this drink is only available seasonally.
