Starbucks Secret Menu

17 Aug
Green Eye

A Red Eye or Black Eye, sure — that’s one and two extra shots of espresso in a regular drip, respectively. But those that go for green get a sure-to-jack-you-up three shots of espresso boost to their cup of coffee.

Dirty Chai

A chai latte (hot or iced) with a shot of espresso added in. And if you want two shots? That’s called a “Double Dirty” or “Extra Dirty” Chai.

Zebra Mocha

Sometimes also called a “Penguin Mocha,” this drink combines the white chocolate mocha with the regular mocha for those who can’t pick a favorite. Or, if you really want to take it to the next level, ask to have raspberry flavoring added for something called the “Red Tux” Mocha.

Chocolate Dalmation

 White Chocolate Mocha with java chips and chocolate chips sprinkle in.

Captain Crunch Frappuccino

 No, this doesn’t involve bringing the childhood-favorite cereal into the store and asking them to blend it in a frappe. Still, fans say that the combination of hazelnut syrup (though some folks contend it should be toffee nut) in a Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino is a dead ringer for the flavor of the cereal.

"Short" Drink

 The Tall drink’s smaller, less expensive younger brother.

French Press

 Apparently if you ask, Starbucks will brew any of the coffee they sell in a French Press.

Super Cream Frappuccino

 Like to go heavy on the whipped cream? Ask for a “Super Cream” version of your Frappe and you’ll get half a cup of whipped cream blended in

Affogato Style Frappuccino

This one probably classifies more as an in-the-know than a “secret” one. Order any Frappe “affogato-style” and you’ll get a shot of hot espresso added on top of your drink as opposed to having it blended in.

Triple C's

 And the award for best alliteration in a Starbucks drink name goes to the Three C’s: Cinnamon Dolce Latte with caramel syrup and chocolate mocha syrup.

Biscotti Frappuccino

 This off-the-menu item sounds a little like a Starbucks version of a DQ Blizzard or a McFlurry, except you have to have to buy a package of biscotti cookies separately and ask your barista to blend them into your Frappe. Note: There seems to be some contention online as to whether or not baristas are actually allowed to put biscotti in the blender, so maybe only ask someone you know is willing to do you a favor.

Cake Batter Frappuccino

 Perhaps a little deceptively named, as there are no actual pieces of cake or cake batter in it, this beverage vanilla and almond syrup to a Vanilla Frappuccino.
