10 Off-The-Menu Starbucks Drinks to Order

by | Nov 19, 2021

You often see Starbucks Secret Menus on social media but one thing you should know about it is that there is no official Starbucks secret menu.

The secret menu items are drinks that customers and baristas have created on their own by modifying the regular menu. There are thousands of combinations of different ingredients that you and or your barista can come up with to transform your drink according to your liking.

Starbucks barista Brad Vargas generously shares 10 off-the-menu drinks and latte customizations you can order at your local Starbucks.

“As baristas, we get a lot of customers asking us to suggest beverages they’ve never tried or even heard of. So @PatingkerBell (Shicone) and I decided to make a thread of Starbucks drinks that are off the menu.”


  1. If you’re into milk teas, he recommends ordering Iced shaken black tea and asking the barista to add white chocolate mocha.
  2. If you’re up for a refreshing thirst quencher, still order Iced shaken black tea but ask to add strawberry sauce instead.
  3. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, simply order Iced classic chocolate and replace the vanilla syrup with white chocolate mocha. This drink will remind you of your childhood favorite chocolatey milk drink Chucky.
  4. A personal fave of Brad, what he calls Oreo frappuccino! Just tell your barista to add chocolate chips to your white chocolate mocha cream frappuccino.
  5. Inspired by a famous girl group, “BlackPink” was made popular by his friend, Shiconene. It’s iced caramel macchiato but replaced the vanilla syrup with raspberry.
  6. Another customization to transform your drink is to ask your barista to “marblize” your Green Tea Frappuccino with strawberry sauce.
  7. For those who feel pretty in pink, this is the drink for you. They call it the Pink Drink, and for an obvious reason. Just order milk, then add raspberry and vanilla syrup. Don’t forget the Caramel Drizzle!
  8. I guess you’ve probably heard of this: The Barista’s Drink. It has also been a popular, off-the-menu beverage. As Brad suggests, you could order it like this: “Iced White Mocha Americano with no water and a splash of breve.”
  9. If you’re pulling an all-nighter, here’s your answer. Ask to add two shots of espresso to your simple Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew. They call this one the Devil’s Drink. ‘You’ll know why when your body forgets what sleep is.”
  10. Controversies are sparked when you mention mint, if you’re not a fan of it, this can maybe change your mind. Get an Iced Shaken Hibiscus Tea, and add Strawberry and Menthe (Mint Syrup).
  11. And for a bonus to give your drink a kick, you can try adding Menthe (Mint Syrup) to your mocha or java chip frappuccino.
