Secret Sips

People have been pioneering and sharing their own special Starbucks recipes since the dawn of the internet, but here in the age of our new TikTok overlords, Starbucks “secret menu” drinks have exploded. Thanks to the amount of ingredients Starbucks keeps on hand, it’s easy to get some exciting new beverages if you know what to ask for.

While there is no actual upcharge for these drinks, they come at a much greater cost than just money. You have to face your barista, look them in the eye, and ask for all this wacky nonsense. And please, please, please don’t hit a barista with one of these orders when the store is busy. Each crazy step you’re asking for? I’d make sure the tip reflects that. But that’s just me.
