If you’re a die-hard Starbucks lover like myself, you’ve probably heard of the infamous secret menu. You also likely have a daily go-to drink that you almost NEVER stray from — but like Barack Obama said, “It’s time for a change.” And with summer finally upon us, I decided to peruse the secret menu for some inspiration.

SO, I picked out a few must-try cool concoctions for the warm weather. Most baristas are familiar with the secret menu, but just in case, recipes are included! 

NOTE: Most of these can be made “light” for those of you who may be worried about that bikini bod!

Like, is this even REAL? All the elegance, sophistication, and richness of the truffle in this to-die-for blended boisson!

  • Java Chip Frappuccino
  • Add mocha syrup (2 pumps for a tall, 3 for a grande, 3.5 for a venti)
  • Add hazelnut syrup ( 1 pump for a tall, 1.5 for a grande, 2 for a venti)

As a big butterscotch lover, I’m sort of surprised Starbucks doesn’t have this item on its real menu! But alas…

  • Caramel syrup (2 pumps for a grande)
  • Toffee nut syrup (2 pumps for a grande)
  • Top with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and caramel brulee bites

Whoever said s’mores were just for campfires wasn’t very creative. The truth is, you can enjoy your fav childhood snack ANYTIME, ANYWHERE. #turndownforwhat

  • Cinnamon Dolce syrup (1 pump for a tall)
  • Toffee nut syrup (1 pump for a tall)
  • Whipped cream blended in! (I  know.)
  • Top with whipped cream and Cinnamon Dolce sprinkles

Please hold your applause — I made this up when I worked as a Starbucks barista, and it’s BOMB NATION. It’s LITERALLY a liquified oatmeal cookie. Thank me later.

  • Vanilla syprup (1 pump for a tall, 2 pumps for a grande, 3 pumps for a venti)
