Summer is rolling around, and people are gearing up for beach days, long vacations, and are expecting lots of hot days. With heat waves sure to be crashing on Santa Barbara over the next months, you need a way to cool off. And what is a better way to cool off than grabbing a refreshing Starbucks Frappucino? Everyone knows the wonderful feeling when you slurp your sweet, cold whirl of frozen heaven. But there is a way to make your frap even better than you could ever imagine. And that is with the secret Starbucks menu. You can take any of the classic frappuccinos and do add ons to create your own special drink. There are many databases online where people compile their recipes, and these are some popular ones.

Cookies and Cream Frappuccino: This delicious ice-cream-gone-frappuccino drink is just a Double Chocolate Chip Frap with a substitution of white mocha sauce instead of regular mocha sauce.

Butterbeer Frappuccino: For all you Harry Potter fans out there, this combination starts with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, then 1-2 pumps of caramel syrup, 1-2 pumps of toffee nut syrup, and a caramel drizzle to top it off.

Neapolitan Frappuccino: This mix of strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate flavors starts with a Strawberries and Creme Frap with 2 pumps mocha syrup, vanilla bean powder, and a chocolate drizzle on top.

Cotton Candy Frappuccino: This drink is a fun bright pink color, and is summer themed. The recipe is a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with 1-2 pumps of raspberry syrup.

Thin Mint Frappuccino: This drink can be yours all year round, unlike the coveted cookies that Girl Scouts sell. Get a Tazo Green Tea Creme Frap, two pumps of chocolate syrup, one pump mint syrup, java chips, and honey.

S’mores Frappuccino: Another summer themed Frap, the way to this delightful delicacy is with a Java Chip Frappuccino, one pump cinnamon dolce syrup, one pump toffee nut syrup, and whipped cream blended into it and on top.

Candy Cane Frappuccino: Even if it is the middle of the summer and is quite aways from Christmas, don’t be afraid to try this beverage. Start with a Vanilla Bean Frap and add 1-2 pumps of peppermint syrup.
