Secret Starbucks drinks
For the people who don't like coffee
I am not a coffee drinker. Not at all. I don't even like coffee flavored ice creams or anything in relation to coffee. I know. I'm awful. My first few months of California Quarantine was spent at my moms house. Someone who is literally Starbucks obsessed. Seriously... she actually goes multiple times a day and orders back up drinks. I was definitely not part of the clique while I was staying there. Saying that I grew tired of the Strawberry Acai drink is a huge understatement. I mean, they're good. But not when you're being brought them in the biggest size day after day after day.
I dug through all the corners of the internet to find some hidden Starbucks drinks for the people like me, who don't like coffee to try. Hopefully you can find something you like whether you're an avid Starbucks fan, someone who has never been, or someone who just goes because your friends or family want you to.
This drink is called the Blackberry Cobbler Frappuccino. For this one, you're gonna start out by ordering a vanilla bean frappuccino. You're gonna add white mocha syrup (2 pumps for venti, 1.5 pumps for grande and 1 pump for tall). Then you're gonna add freeze dried blackberries and blend it. Top with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs. Voila! Cobbler in a cup.
For the birthday cake batter frappuccino, you're gonna ask for a vanilla bean frappuccino. You're gonna ask for 1 pump of Hazelnut syrup and for the barista to add one whole birthday cake pop in and blend. You can do it like the D.I.Y picture above and have sprinkles added throughout or just top with whipped cream and sprinkles. Happy birthday!
For this super simple cotton candy frap, you're just gonna ask your barista for a vanilla bean frap with 2-3 pumps of raspberry. Instant carnival.
Some people aren't fans of drinkable mint. Those people can keep their coffee. This one is so good! It's one of my favorites. You're gonna ask your barista for a vanilla bean frappuccino. Add chocolate syrup and 2 pumps of peppermint. Blend. Top with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. You can also get the cup lined with chocolate which makes it even better.
One of my all time favorite candies in this universe. The Ferrero Rocher. Yum! I haven't tried this frap version, but I bet it's amazing. You're gonna aske for a double chocolate frappuccino. Add 1 to 2 pumps of hazelnut syrup. Top with whipped cream and a hazelnut drizzle. Sounds like Heaven in a cup.
Who doesn't love lemon and lime flavored stuff? That can't just be me. For this one, you're gonna ask for a cool lime refresher. Add whole milk. Add cinnamon dolce syrup (1.5 pumps for venti, 1 pump for grande, and a half pump for tall). Add vanilla syrup (3 pumps for venti, 2 pumps for grande, and 1 for tall. Add white mocha (3 pumps for venti, 2 pumps for grande, and 1 for tall). Blend in whipped cream. Top with whipped cream and graham cracker crumble. This one may be hard to get your hands on though, as not all Starbucks carry the Cool Lime Refresher anymore.
The Orange drink tastes like those little peach gummy candies that we all know and love. You're gonna ask for a venti iced half sweet black tea lemonade. Combine with peach tea. Add a splash of soy milk.
Like biting into an actual peach, the fuzzy peach tea (while having an awkward name) really is the perfect drink for summer. You're gonna ask for a Passion iced tea with half water, half orange mango puree, and some peach syrup. That's it.
This drink is just pretty to look at. You're gonna ask for an iced passion tea lemonade. Add strawberry juice and classic syrup. Add orange mango puree on top. Don't blend. Beautiful and tasty.
This one is super simple. Just ask for an orange mango lemonade with 2 pumps of raspberry syrup. That's it.
Last but not least on my list, I wanted to throw in a Holiday one as Christmas is quite literally just around the corner. So here is the Candy Cane Frappuccino. You're gonna start by ordering a Peppermint Creme Frappuccino. Ask for red Christmas sprinkles to be added to the bottom. Top with whipped cream and more sprinkles! Easy and festive.
I hope you find something you might enjoy on the list. Happy sipping!
