Starbucks’ Secret Menu is filled with Instragrammable, mouth-watering concoctions that you won’t find on the regular menu. Let us help you switch up your regular latte order and become a Starbucks insider!

Amp up your routine Starbucks run with these Starbucks Secret Menu drinks. (But first, you might want to take a look to make sure you’ve mastered all the tips to save at Starbucks.)


How to Order Secret Starbucks Drinks

While many of these secret menu drinks can be ordered from the Starbucks app or for delivery, some can’t; when in doubt, order these drinks in person so the barista can clarify and make the necessary customizations. All of the prices and recipes are based on Grande size; you’ll have to adjust for smaller or larger cup sizes. And note that Starbucks prices are on the rise, so you may face different prices in store.


Best Starbucks Secret Menu Frappuccino
