Famous TikTok Starbucks Drinks & How To Order Them

If you’re a fan of TikTok, you’ve probably already noticed the trend of different content creators on the app coming up with custom drinks at Starbucks. 

If you aren’t a denizen of TikTok, you may have heard some of the most popular custom creations mentioned, like the Pink Drink or the Captain Crunch Frappuccino.

The video platform has brought attention to the weird and wild ways some Starbucks customers make the components and menu items their own. 

Read on to learn more about famous TikTok Starbucks drinks and how to order them.

Famous TikTok Starbucks Drinks

Of course, you can’t just walk into your local Starbucks and ask for “The TikTok drink,” especially since there are several different drink creations that TikTok creators have shown off on the app. 

Most of the drinks that have become famous on TikTok aren’t even on the menu; some of them are on the “Starbucks secret menu,” concoctions that baristas make up.

Some of the beverages that TikTok creators feature in their videos aren’t even known to most baristas and are instead inventions by the TikTok crowd themselves.

Taking advantage of different components like toppings, syrups, and inclusions that locations carry either year-round or seasonally.

So regardless if you want your drink to contain vanilla sweet cold foam or you want to top it off with a caramel drizzle, it’s something you can do. Just ask!

In order to make sure you’re getting the TikTok Starbucks drink you want, it’s important to know what to order and how to order it.

How To Order TikTok Starbucks Drinks

Because TikTok drinks aren’t on the main menu, the baristas aren’t trained in how to make them. 

The company puts all of its baristas through a standard repertoire of drinks as part of the early training process and refreshes that with newer or seasonal menu items as needed. 

So how do you make sure your Starbucks barista knows what you want? By knowing the recipe.

Each of the TikTok drinks has its own components, method, and potentially more than one name (sometimes based on region). 

So in order to get a chance to try one of these wild and sometimes wonderful drinks, you should know what to tell the barista.

You should also have a backup drink in mind when you order because there’s a possibility that the location you go to won’t have all of the components you need to get the drink made.

Either because the ingredients are seasonal or because they don’t have it on hand due to supply or other issues. 

But with the guide below and a well-stocked Starbucks, you can get lucky.

Also be prepared for the possibility that the drink won’t come out exactly like the TikTok videos because of constraints on supplies. Just be flexible and use substitutions when stuff isn’t in stock.
