Starbucks’ secret menu isn’t so secret anymore thanks to the numerous social media posts you’ll find today. 

With so many tips and recipes all over TikTok, it's hard to resist trying every one I come across. But are the famous ones overhyped?

I put my tastebuds (and wallet) on the line to try the most famous Starbucks TikTok drinks and tell you how you can order them on your next coffee run.

TikTok is one of the most popular social media platforms today and produces plenty of viral videos - including secret Starbucks hacks.[1

Let's dive into my fave trending and viral Starbucks drinks!  

1. The TikTok Drink 

Starbucks Strawberry Acai Refresher

You’re probably wondering, “what’s this drink you see all over TikTok? That’s not even on the Starbucks menu.” Well, you’re right; it’s not.

It's a variation on the popular Starbucks strawberry acai refresher, and if you’ve been seeing way too many posts about this pink TikTok drink, here’s how you can try it out.  

This sweet and sour berry drink has been an absolute staple for me this summer! I can't get enough of how fresh and fruity it is - I can't even go back to normal refreshers now.

How To Order
  • When you’re at the counter, simply order a Venti Strawberry Acai Lemonade Refresher and ask the barista to put three scoops of blackberries, three scoops of strawberries and ice all blended.

2. White Mocha Iced Coffee 

Starbucks White Mocha Iced Coffee

Oh, iced coffee! Every millennial and gen z’s favorite drink.

I confess that I'm also one of those people who loves iced coffee way too much, so this popular TikTok drink is perfect for me.

The Iced White Mocha is basically just iced coffee with white mocha sauce and vanilla sweet cold foam. 

The sweetness of the classic syrup and cream complement the strong taste of coffee, making the Iced White Mocha an excellent drink for those days when I wanna treat myself.

3. Vietnamese Iced Coffee 

Starbucks Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Have you ever tried Vietnamese coffee? A regular Vietnamese coffee is made with condensed milk instead of your regular creamer or milk.

This results in a creamy, sweet coffee beverage that I am obsessed with!

Unfortunately, Starbucks doesn’t offer condensed milk as a substitute for the dairy in your drink.

However, the classic syrup combined with the extra vanilla sweet cream foam create a thick and sweet coffee treat that I just cannot resist! 

This is definitely more of a treat than a regular order though - having it every day would be too much for me.

How To Order
  • Ask the barista for a Venti Doubleshot on Ice with classic syrup and extra vanilla sweet cream cold foam.

4. The “Pink Drink” 

Starbucks Pink Drink

It took me a hot second to realise that there's a difference TikTok’s “Pink Drink” and the actual Pink Drink. 

They may look the same, but TikTok’s version tweaked Starbucks' original Pink Drink recipe.

The original Pink Drink uses coconut milk, making it an excellent Starbucks choice for vegans. It adds a creamy tropical touch to the sweet strawberry blend that I enjoy.

However, the viral TikTok Pink Drink uses heavy cream instead. If you’re cursed to be lactose intolerant (like me!), or just avoiding dairy, the Pink Drink may not be a good option without subbing something else in.

How To Order
  • Order a Pink Drink with heavy cream instead of coconut milk and ask to add two scoops of vanilla bean powder shaken in and with whipped cream on top.

5. Gummy Bear Drink 

Starbucks Gummy Bear Refresher

If you love gummy bears and Dutch Bros like me, then you need to try this sweet treat!

I was the kid who loved ripping open a pack of gummy bears and watching cartoons - every sip of this has me feeling like a kid again. 

I swear it tastes the same as your favorite gummy - this is probably down to the mixture of tart lemonade and sweet raspberry syrup

I love how vibrant it is both in color and taste. The Gummy Bear is such a fun way to shake up your Starbucks summer drink rotation - especially if you don't live near a Dutch Bros!

How To Order
  • To order this, ask for a grande lemonade with 4 pumps of raspberry syrup.

6. Triple Caramel Threat 

Starbucks Triple Caramel Threat Frappuccino

This is another Starbucks drink for sweet tooths out there! As its name implies, the drink includes three times the caramel you can find in regular Starbucks beverages. 

I'm a notorious sweet tooth, but even I was a little worried about the Triple Threat being too sweet for me. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised at how well balanced the caramel is - the cold brew and cream in the vanilla cold foam really help. 

As you can imagine, this drink is sugar city! 

I tend to avoid ordering it when I'm keeping an eye on my diet.
How To Order
  • Ask the barista for a venti cold brew with caramel syrup, vanilla, sweet cream foam blended with dark caramel, and add a caramel drizzle on top.

7. Strawberry Cheesecake Frappuccino 

Starbucks Strawberry Cheesecake Frappuccino

If there’s one thing that TikTok users are good at, it is at making delicious food into Starbucks drinks. Another dessert that they made into one is strawberry cheesecake (my favorite!).

I get it; I'd also drink cheesecake if I could. 

Thankfully, there’s Strawberry Cheesecake Frappuccino. After a long day, this creamy and velvety drink is the perfect pick-me-up treat.

Delicious, sweet, creamy - what more could you want?

As yummy as it is, I stick to having this dessert drink on special occasions - it's a sugar bomb.

How To Order
  • Order a Venti-sized Strawberry Frappuccino, combined with three scoops of vanilla bean powder, three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup, and four pumps of white mocha. Then ask for it to be topped with whipped cream or a thick sweet cream foam.

8. Berry Peach Lemonade 

Starbucks Raspberry Peach Lemonade

When it's sweltering out, I love cooling down with a fruity lemonade. I never gave too much thought to Starbucks' lemonades until the Berry Peach Lemonade rocked my world.

With just a few pumps of raspberry syrup and peach juice flavors, a normal lemonade becomes the perfect sweet treat. 

It’s light, sour, and peachy - perfect for a hot day. I prefer mine blended but love the color of the iced version.

Just don't be fooled, even though this TikTok drink has peach juice it really isn't healthy - and each of these popular TikTok Starbucks drinks has a lot of sugar!

How To Order
  • Ask the barista to add six pumps of raspberry syrup and light peach juice to your Venti strawberry acai lemonade.

9. Twix Frappuccino

Starbucks Twix frappuccino

I love Twix bars! They are the perfect afternoon treat to power through my work day. 

Well, someone loved it so much they created a Starbucks recipe.

I almost wish I didn't know this existed because it is a dangerous (and delicious!) temptation in my life now.

The combination of nut, cream, hot chocolate, and caramel drizzle feels like heaven in every sip! 

I love ordering this as an occasional TGIF treat - it's a nice little monthly routine for me.

How To Order
  • To order this iced sweet cream hot chocolate drink, ask for a caramel frappuccino with two pumps of hazelnut syrup and extra java chips topped with mocha and extra caramel drizzle.

10. Skittles Frappuccino 

Starbucks Skittles Frappuccino

I never thought I'd taste a rainbow until I had a Skittles Frappuccino! 

Think of it as Skittles for grown-ups. 

The vanilla mixes well with the sourness of the berries, so every sip is a treat. 

As cute and social media-worthy its appearance is, the taste can be surprisingly overpoweringI just tend to get a small to avoid going into a complete sugar overload!

How To Order
  • When ordering, ask for a Venti Strawberry frappuccino combined with four pumps of vanilla and one and a half pumps of vanilla syrup. Top it with whipped cream or sweet cream foam.

11. Oreo Frappuccino 

Starbucks Oreo Frappuccino

Oreos are one of the best snacks ever! It's no wonder almost every one of my favorite restaurants and cafes has at least one take on this treat. 

As an oreo milkshake fiend, I was incredibly excited to try this TikTok take on a classic. I love how tasty it turned out - this Starbucks drink recipe is one of the best TikTok drinks, in my opinion.

The iced hot chocolate style drink is creamy and chocolatey, perfect as a dessert or just something to drink if I'm bored of my usual order.

How To Order
  • Ask for a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino with white mocha sauce and whipped cream on top.

12. Apple Pie Frappuccino

Starbucks Apple Pie Frappuccino

Another viral Starbucks drink is Apple Pie Frappuccino. I love apple pie and bake it at home all the time, but sometimes I just want someone to make it for me.

Sweet and creamy with a touch of cinnamon - nothing beats it in the fall!

This drink is the best way for me to satisfy my craving for pie when I'm too busy to run to the bakery.

How To Order
  • If you want to get this, just order a Creme Frappuccino with two pumps of caramel syrup and cinnamon dolce, with heavy cream and apple juice.

13. The Kinder Bueno Drink 

Starbucks Iced Kinder Bueno Latte

Kinder Bueno is my absolute favorite snack of all time!

I'm not the only one - there's plenty of cafes who try to replicate this delicious treat as a drink or dessert.

When I first tried this iced white mocha drink, I was surprised to find that it’s surprisingly similar and just as tasty. Now I'm hooked!

The hazelnut syrup balances out the intense flavor of the coffee, which is great for when I don't want coffee to take center stage. 

A lovely treat for kids and big kids at heart!

How To Order
  • You can order this by asking the barista for an Iced White Mocha with a shot of hazelnut. Be warned; this drink is addicting!

14. Berry Caramel Frappuccino 

Starbucks Strawberry Caramel Frappuccino

Berries and cream is such a classic combo for me in the summer, so I was really eager to try this Thai TikTok combo out when it came up on my feed. 

With just some fruit puree and juice, a simple Strawberry Acai Refresher Lemonade becomes one of the most refreshing and fruity drinks I've had in a while. 

I admit, I was not quite sure about the caramel as I ordered it but it ended up being such a nice note to cut through all the fruit.

Sweet, fruity, creamy - this drink really is the whole package!

How To Order
  • Ask your barista for a Strawberry Acai Refresher Lemonade combined with strawberry puree, apple juice, double scoops of mango, dragonfruit, and strawberries. Then, tell them to double-blend it and add a caramel drizzle on top

15. Buttercream Frappuccino

Starbucks Buttercream Frappuccino

When it comes to cake, buttercream is the only acceptable frosting to me. Sometimes, I don't even want the cake, I just wanna dip my finger in the frosting. 

Enter the Buttercream Frappuccino!

This absolute must-try viral Starbucks TikTok drink is creamy, smooth, and velvety. Every sip is such a delight.

I love ordering this at the end of a long week as a treat - I get to just skip the cake and get right to the best part!

How To Order
  • If you want to get this drink on your next trip to Starbucks, order a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with two pumps of toffee nut syrup topped with extra caramel drizzle.

Things To Know When Ordering These TikTok Drinks

These viral TikTok Starbucks drinks are not just delicious; they are an experience.

This is because you have to order it exactly how it’s supposed to be since they’re not on the menu. 

Because of this, you can’t just tell the barista you want an "Oreo Frappuccino".  You have to carefully enumerate and let them know what to put in it.  

So, before you go and order, make sure you have the recipe ready with you or know what to say.   

Other things to keep in mind when ordering a secret menu drink:

  • Try replacing dairy milk with a plant-based one like Starbucks oat milk for a new taste experience
  • Vegans and lactose-intolerant folks should remove any cold foam or whip to avoid dairy
  • You can get cold foam in a bunch of flavors (or even ask the barista to blend in a powder like matcha)
  • Get creative with syrups and drizzles for a whole new depth of flavor
  • Ordering complicated drinks when there are a lot of customers can put a lot of pressure on your barista [2]

With these tips in mind, you can now go ahead and try all of these unique drinks you find on TikTok.
