Starbucks offers a wide range of drinks in all shapes and sizes. Trenta is the 'Starbucks secret size' and the largest on the menu. It's called the Starbucks secret size because they don’t offer it for every drink, and even if you can find it you'll see it's a lot more expensive. You don't want to spend more on a massive drink that you won’t enjoy or embarrass yourself trying to order a drink you can’t.
We're here to help, and in this guide, we'll show you all the best Starbucks Trenta drinks on the regular and Starbucks secret menu, so you know exactly what’s available.
15 Starbucks Trenta Drinks (Best Drinks In A Bigger Size)
1. Iced Coffee
This is one of the only espresso-based Starbucks drinks offered in a Trenta size.

This iced coffee has the classic Starbucks taste with a big hit of caffeine and is popular with older drinkers who love the coffee flavor.
There are 160 calories and 39 grams of sugar in a Trenta iced espresso. Most of this comes from the 7 pumps of syrup, and if you choose to add extra sugar, it will impact the calories. 160 calories may seem like a lot for an iced coffee, but it's basically a diet option compared to other Trenta drinks. There's also 280mg of caffeine from the iced espresso, so it's a great alternative for a hot summer morning.
2. Iced Black Tea/Lemonade
Black tea is a favorite with older drinkers, but it’s often sweetened or mixed with lemonade for younger drinkers. The shaken iced tea lemonade is made with their unique premium black tea and shaken over ice, so if you have it straight up, there are no sweeteners, sugar, or syrups. This makes the iced tea perfect for those on a diet because there are 0 calories, and it's even suitable for those who are dairy-free or on keto. There's also 50mg of caffeine, so you'll get a bit of an energy boost and it's a softer alternative to an iced coffee.

How To Order Trenta Size Drinks At Starbucks?
A Trenta cup is the largest size on the Starbucks menu, but it's only available for cold drinks. The word Trenta actually comes from the Italian for 30, but confusingly, the Starbucks Trenta cup holds 31 ounces. The extra ounce is there so there’s room for ice floating on the top of your iced coffee.
You won’t see a Trenta cup on the regular Starbucks menu and it's considered a Starbucks secret menu size. Because of this, many people think Venti is the largest Starbucks option. However, if you ask the barista for Trenta, they'll supersize your drink.
Trenta isn’t available for hot drinks, presumably because of safety reasons. They did used to have this option on the Starbucks menu, but they now don’t make many espresso-based drinks in this size. In fact, they really limit the Trenta options in some regions because some Starbucks drinks would just be too caffeinated or calorific for customers (for example, if you ordered a Trenta Starbucks Frappuccino, it would probably have over 1000 calories!). Instead, most Trenta drinks are iced coffees or iced teas, with a few specialties and fruity options drinks.
You can still get some very sweet Starbucks Trenta drinks, and they are usually made with at least 7 pumps of syrup. Make sure you keep an eye on the sugar and calorie content of your drink because Trentas are almost always the least healthy Starbucks option.
We're shown you a lot of Trenta drinks on the regular menu, but you can also order from the Starbucks secret menu. The Starbucks secret menu is basically the list of regular and iced drinks you can request using the wide range of ingredients they have available. The Starbucks secret menu options have to be ordered specifically from your barista, but you can customise drinks how you like to make sure it meets your tastes, and the Starbucks secret menu opens up a whole new world of Trenta possibilities.
Trenta is the most expensive option and will usually cost $0.50-$1 extra. However, it can also offer some good value if you share it with a friend. You can still customize Trenta drinks, but it will cost you more because they’ll have to add a greater quantity of the ingredients.
Trenta cup drinks are perfect when you need to cold drinks or iced coffee on a hot day, and a Venti just won't hit the spot. Unfortunately, you can’t select Trenta on the Starbucks app, so you will need to order it in person.
