Most Starbucks regulars know that there are several tasty drinks that any customer can order even if they are not on the main menu. This group of hidden drinks is referred to as the “Starbucks secret menu.” It is not an official menu, but rather a way of altering the preexisting drinks to create something completely new and different from any other item at Starbucks.

The Pink Drink is an infamous and fairly well-known drink after having been shared on multiple social media platforms, due to its bright hue of pink. To order this drink, get a Strawberry Acai Refresher without water and add coconut milk.

It has a really unique taste,” said senior Giulia Tasca. “It resembles the taste of a Starburst but is a little less artificial.”

Most baristas at Starbucks will know what the Pink Drink is, so you can avoid saying a longer order by addressing the drink by its name.

Although it is a little trickier to order, Harry Potter fans are sure to enjoy the Butterbeer Frappuccino that the Starbucks secret menu offers. For the drink that will take your taste buds all the way to Hogwarts, ask for a vanilla bean frappuccino as a base, then add three pumps of caramel syrup, and three pumps of toffee nut syrup. This drink will save you a trip to Harry Potter World, but is sure to make you want to binge watch the thrilling films.

For chocolate lovers, Starbucks fanatics have figured out a way to order a Nutella Frappuccino. It starts with a Caffe Misto, then add one pump of chocolate syrup, one pump of hazelnut syrup, and top it off with a caramel drizzle.

I consider it more of a dessert,” said junior Claire Hyatt. “But it really does taste like Nutella.”

This last drink will take you all the way back to eating delicious pink cotton candy at the fair under the hot summer sun. The Cotton Candy Frappuccino is simple to order, and is a light pink color, which makes it perfect for photos. To order this drink, start with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino and add two pumps of raspberry syrup.

The drink is really sweet,” said freshman Chloe Hopkins. “Other than that, it is really good and refreshing.” Although it is simple, this beverage packs a lot of punch in flavor.

There are endless different combinations of drinks that can be ordered at Starbucks. The secret menu is a whole new way to revolutionize how the world enjoys their favorite coffee. Trying new drinks is essential for Starbucks lovers that are always looking for a new taste.
