Starbucks is a multibillion dollar corporation who extensively research everything that is possible to make the customer feel satisfied. Among the many workings of Starbucks, is a secret list of starbucks drinks that this article will explore a little more in detail.
Before I get to the actual list, I want to point out one important lesson based on interviews with multiple baristas. They are not all-knowing beverage gods. If you do order a drink from the secret menu, be aware that you will probably need to know more than the cool name. With that in mind, let me guide you through the top ten drinks from the secret menu.
1. Caramel Apple Frappuccino
For this beverage, take your frappucino with apple juice instead of cream and add caramel and cinnamon dolce syrup.
2. Peach Ring Tea
Order a mixture of half Valencia orange refresher and half passion tea with no water and add 1 to 3 pumps of peach syrup.
3. S’mores Frappuccino
Order a java chip frappuccino, or double chocolate chip if you don’t want a caffeine overload, and add half a pump each of toffee nut syrup and cinnamon dolce syrup. Blend whipped cream into the drink and ask for more on top then complete with cinnamon dolce sprinkles.
4. Nutella Latte
Add a pump each of chocolate and hazelnut syrup to a Caffe Misto and drizzle with caramel
5. Mint Chocolate Chip Frappuccino
Start with a green tea frappuccino and add peppermint syrup and java chips until you’ve reached an ideal balance of mint and chocolate.
