It’s amazing all the different flavors available at your local coffee shop. There you are surrounded by spices and syrups that when put together in the right combination makes your delicious coffee drink that you love. You have to give credit to the knowledge and skill that your local barista has. It is so much more complicated than you can ever imagine.
With this inventory of great flavors you can only imagine the combinations possible. Your local Starbucks is such a place where these wonderful combinations come together. You may of never realized that the Starbucks menu seems relatively small. But is it really?
For the longest time Starbucks has kept a secret menu from the prying eyes of the public. Why they keep this secret menu so hush-hush is beyond me.
So without further ado. Here is that secret menu.
Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks
Green Eye: Three shots of espresso. (Note: At some Starbucks it’s called a Blue Eye.)
Dirty Chai: A Chai latte (hot or iced) with a shot of espresso. Two shots makes it a “Double Dirty” or “Extra Dirty” Chai.
Zebra Mocha: Sometimes called a “Penguin Mocha,” a “MarbleMocha,” or a “Black and White Mocha,” this drink mixes the white chocolate mocha with the regular mocha. Adding raspberry flavor makes it a “Red Tux” Mocha.
Chocolate Dalmatian: A White Chocolate Mocha with java chips and chocolate chips sprinkled in.
Cake Batter Frappuccino: Originally vanilla and almond syrup added to a Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino. Since almond syrup is largely unavailable, some recommend subbing in hazelnut syrup and white mocha.
Captain Crunch/Crunch Berry Frappuccino: A combination of hazelnut syrup (though some folks contend it should be toffee nut) with a Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino.
“Short” Drink: The Tall drink’s smaller, less expensive younger brother.
French Press: Starbucks will brew any of the coffee they sell in a French Press.
Super Cream Frappuccino: Ask for a “Super Cream” version of your Frappuccino and you’ll get half a cup of whipped cream blended in.
Affogato-Style Frappuccino: Order any Frappuccino “affogato-style” and you’ll get a shot of hot espresso on top of instead of it being blended in.
Triple C’s: Cinnamon Dolce Latte with caramel syrup and chocolate mocha syrup.
Biscotti Frappuccino: You have to have to buy a package of biscotti cookies separately and ask your barista to blend them into your Frappe.
