15 Secret Drinks You Can Order at Starbucks

Starbucks is a staple that wakes thousands of Americans up in the morning, but there's more to the coffee chain than what meets the eye.

Fans of the coffee chain might be aware of a "secret menu" that allows you to customize your regular order, after it made headlines in 2017 when Starbucks released the Unicorn Frappuccino, a concoction of pink powder with mango syrup and sour blue drizzle.

Since, viral Tiktok videos have inspired extra complicated orders, creating a headache for plenty of Starbuck's busy baristas. It might be fun to go wild with weird and wonderful ideas, but do consider the person blending your beverage.

If you're looking to change up your go-to drink, Newsweek has you covered with 15 creative combos. Take a look below.
