Hack Your Fraps: 33 Starbucks Secret Drinks from Butterbeer to S'mores

Let's be honest - it's thrilling to successfully order something from a secret menu. When you combine secret menus with your caffeine intake, the thrill can be downright invigorating. Maybe that explains why hacks from the Starbucks secret menu are so popular. The Starbucks secret menu is like a mythological text, sacred and whispered about in lines everywhere.

From dessert frappuccinos to cookie frappuccinos to recreating your favorite holiday drinks all year along, the regular menu of Starbucks can be manipulated to create some delicious flavors of Starbucks secret drinks.

Before we get started, if you're not a Starbucks Rewards member already, you're doing yourself a financial disservice if you love the 'Bux. Every 250 points you receive free food or drink item. So get a Rewards account. Now, for the real pro tip.

When you're ordering a complicated order (and let's face it - secret menu items are often more complex) at Starbucks, use the mobile ordering feature. You'll be able to clearly input exactly what you want using the easy navigation provided, and your barista will be able to clearly read your mobile order because it prints out like a receipt. No room for confusion there, and you get to skip the line. Win-win!

If you do order Starbucks secret menu items in the store, the best thing you can do is be extra polite to your barista. Know exactly what goes into the concoction you want, because Starbucks baristas probably won't. These hacks aren't on the actual menu, so don't expect them to what you mean by "pink drink" or "mermaid frappuccino."
