The 55 Tastiest Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks In 2022

Although Starbucks started out as a boutique coffee shop, offering Italian-style espresso drinks and drip coffee to Seattle fanatics, the coffee chain has grown to a point where it offers something for everyone. 

Whether you like coffee, tea, or neither, there’s something to enjoy at Starbucks, especially if you take the legendary “secret menu” into account.

But, what is the Starbucks secret menu, and how creative does it get? Read on to find out more!

What Is The Starbucks Secret Menu?

The Starbucks secret menu is an ever-evolving list of drinks that use existing Starbucks ingredients but unique recipes. 

These secret menu drinks don’t usually show up on any official documentation, and they aren’t on the regular menu.

Instead, they’re creations that baristas and customers come up with on their own. While some of the Starbucks secret menu drinks are only available at certain times of the year, most of them use year-round components. 

The Starbucks secret menu constantly grows, evolving as the international coffee chain adds and subtracts different ingredients from store stocks.

How To Order: Starbucks Secret Menu

One important thing to understand is that, by definition, these drinks aren’t official Starbucks drinks, so baristas aren’t formally trained to make them. 

There’s also a possibility that the same Starbucks secret menu drink may have different names depending on where you are in the world.

To make sure that you get what you’re looking for, it’s easiest to memorize the recipe itself and repeat it to your barista. Fortunately, the steps are pretty easy. 

  • Size
    • Specify the size of the Starbucks secret menu drink: Short, Tall, Grande, Venti, or Trenta.
    • In some cases, the size can impact the proportions of the recipe.

  • Base
    • The base drink your secret menu selection uses is important.
    • Naming the base drink helps your barista enter the drink into the register correctly.

  • Substitutions
    • There are a lot of ways to customize any Starbucks menu item.
    • The substitutions and additions are what make Starbucks secret menu drinks what they are.
  • Additions or toppings
    • These are different from substitutions because they add to the drink instead of swapping.
