If you spend any time on social media, you’ve probably seen videos of delicious and unique Starbucks drinks to try, usually first posted to TikTok. These TikTok Starbucks drinks are part of the “secret menu” at Starbucks—they aren’t listed as official drinks, and you’ll have to order them as a customized beverage.

With so many fun and yummy flavors, it’s no wonder that Starbucks customers like to experiment with new combinations. Thanks to the internet, you can quickly learn about some of the best combinations that people have tried.

We’ve put together a list of some of the most viral TikTok Starbucks drinks to try and tips on ordering them. Read on to find out about some of the most incredible hidden gems that Starbucks has to offer.

Top 10 Viral TikTok Starbucks Drinks

There are thousands of TikTok videos showing off special Starbucks orders, so we did a deep dive to find the very best TikTok Starbucks drinks and the easiest ways to order them, or even make them at home.

1. Strawberry Acai Refresher (The TikTok Drink)

The Strawberry Acai Refresher went so viral on TikTok that it’s been nicknamed “the TikTok Drink.” A customized take on Starbucks’ acai refresher menu, the TikTok Drink is sweet, fruity, and incredibly refreshing.

If you loved fruit slushies as a kid, the TikTok Drink is a must-have. A blend of freeze-dried berries and extra ice, the TikTok Drink is the perfect thirst-quenching icy beverage on a hot day. 

To order the TikTok Drink, ask for a venti strawberry acai refresher with three scoops of strawberries, three scoops of blackberries, and an equal-sized scoop of ice. There are various ways to order this drink, but you will get the best results if you order a larger size and ask for extra ice to get the ideal slushie texture. You can also try a venti Strawberry Acai Lemonade if you prefer a pleasant acidity to the drink. It’s one of the best summer Starbucks drinks on the list.

2. Iced White Mocha With Sweet Cream Foam and Extra Caramel Drizzle

The modified iced white mocha is a favorite on TikTok, and for a good reason. If you like a sweet and indulgent iced coffee beverage, this elevated take on the iced white mocha is worth trying.

This sugary drink takes the original iced white mocha and adds vanilla sweet cold foam and a drizzle of caramel. While this may sound like a lot, the extra sweetness and texture from the foam create a marshmallow-like taste, and the addition of the caramel balances out the white chocolate flavor.

To order, simply ask for an iced white mocha in the size of your preference, and request that the whipped cream be switched out for vanilla sweet cream cold foam and that caramel drizzle be added to the sides and top. 

3. Vietnamese Iced Coffee

If you aren’t familiar with the iconic Vietnamese iced coffee, you are missing out. Typically, a Vietnamese-style iced coffee will have strong iced coffee mixed with sweet condensed milk. Although the Starbucks version isn’t quite the same, it recreates the flavors.

The customized “Vietnamese iced coffee” order at Starbucks tastes sweet and strong, making it a bolder take on the typical popular sugary drinks you can get. This TikTok drink is an excellent choice for anyone who wants a sweet drink while still getting a distinct coffee taste.

To order this drink, ask for:

  • Two espresso shots
  • Ice
  • Vanilla sweet cream foam on top
  • One pump of classic syrup 

This drink won’t have the thickness of condensed milk, but it will have the rich sweetness and bold coffee flavor to start your day right. 

4. The TikTok Pink Drink

The Starbucks Pink Drink—a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk—was once a secret menu drink. However, it became so incredibly popular with customers that Starbucks decided to add it to the official menu. Now, influencers on TikTok have come up with another twist on the tasty treat.

The TikTok Pink Drink could be considered the milkshake cousin of the original Pink Drink, with cream and vanilla flavoring added for a thicker texture and sweeter taste. The result is a refreshing strawberry and cream flavor. 

To order the TikTok Pink Drink, ask for a pink drink, but instead of coconut milk, order heavy cream, and add two scoops of vanilla bean powder. For a whole milkshake vibe, ask for whipped cream, as well.

There are a few other variations of this famous Starbucks drink. Replace the strawberry with dragon fruit you have red dragon drink. To make a purple drink, mix passion tea, soy milk, a few pumps of vanilla syrup, one scoop of blackberries, and ice cubes.

5. Gummy Bear Drink

Don’t let the name or the bright color deceive you—the Gummy Bear Drink may be sweet, but it has a more natural and refreshing taste than its candy namesake. 

The Gummy Bear drink is essentially an elevated version of a Starbucks lemonade, with raspberry flavoring or strawberry puree blended to create a sugary concoction reminiscent of gummy bears. 

This colorful and fruity drink makes for some aesthetic photos and a delicious refresher on a warm day. To order, all you need to do is ask for lemonade with two or three pumps of raspberry syrup, depending on how sweet you like your gummy bears. 

6. Twix Frappuccino

If candy bars are more your style, consider trying the Twix Frappuccino. This popular TikTok drink is designed to mimic the taste of a Twix chocolate bar. This secret menu beverage has been around for a while and continues to be a favorite order for many.

The Twix Frappuccino is a delicious combination of caramel and chocolate, all contained within a sugary, caffeinated frappuccino with hazelnut syrup. This customized frappuccino drink honestly tastes like a Twix, with java chips serving as the candy bar’s cookie crunch.

To order, ask for a caramel frappuccino with two pumps of caramel syrup, two pumps of hazelnut, and java chips. For the finishing touch, request caramel and mocha drizzle on top of the whipped cream. 

7. Peaches and Cream Hot Chocolate

For those who aren’t in the know, peaches and cream are one of the tastiest and arguably underrated sweet flavor combinations. Thanks to the wonderful folks on TikTok, there is now a simple way to get peaches and cream hot chocolate from your local Starbucks.

Peaches and cream hot chocolate is a sweet and milky beverage that ends up tasting a little like a liquid peach cobbler. Perfect for a cold winter’s day, this TikTok Starbucks drink is a unique take on a typical hot chocolate.

To order, ask for a white hot chocolate with coconut milk and a peach tranquility tea bag. The flavor of the tea bag will blend with the chocolate and coconut milk to create a sweet and refreshing warm drink. 

8. Chai Violet Drink

We love the chai violet drink for a fruity and lightly spiced cold beverage option. TikTok comes through with this Starbucks secret menu item, which feels quite distinct from the typical Starbucks options. 

The blend of the fruity flavors of the Starbucks Violet Drink—a very berry hibiscus refresher with coconut milk—with the chai spices makes for a visually attractive and tasty drink on a hot day.

To order a chai violet drink, all you have to do is ask for a violet drink with three pumps of chai. The result is a not-too-sweet and subtly spicy iced beverage that is sure to become one of your favorites. 

Calling all cookie butter fans! This is the TikTok Starbucks drink for you. The Cookie Butter Latte takes the best of the sweet and spicy flavors of cookie butter and puts them into a yummy Starbucks latte.

The Cookie Butter Latte includes oat milk, chai, and brown butter, making for a sweet, wholesome, oatmeal cookie flavor with hints of chai spice. This secret menu drink is a big hit for anyone who enjoys Starbucks’ gingerbread latte or just wants a twist on the regular latte.

To order the cookie butter latte, ask for an iced chai latte with:

  • Oat milk
  • Double pumps of the delicious brown sugar syrup 
  • Sweet cream cold foam 

Top off the drink with brown butter. For extra flair, ask for the brown butter to be blended in with sweet cream cold foam. 

10. Strawberry Foam Matcha Latte

The Strawberry Foam Matcha Latte is a visually beautiful Starbucks drink, with pale tones of green and pink evoking a magical spring environment. Some millennials and Gen Z-ers even compare it to Wanda and Cosmo’s signature green and pink on The Fairly OddParents

This attractive beverage elevates the classic matcha latte with a fruity and sugary twist. We love this drink for a warm spring day when you want to have something special for your iced tea.

To order, ask for an iced matcha latte with freeze-dried strawberries and sweet cream cold foam on top. To achieve the pink color on top, request that the foam be blended with strawberry puree. 

Other Popular TikTok Starbucks Drinks

Since Starbucks has all kinds of ingredients prepared already, you can use the Starbucks app or politely ask the Starbucks barista to craft your favorite drinks. 

Besides the drinks mentioned above, there are more popular Tiktok Starbucks drinks to explore. Here is a list of the drinks’ names and the way to order them.

  • Sour Patch Kid Drink (Venti Strawberry Acai Lemonade, 3 pumps of classic, 3 pumps of raspberry syrup, splash of passion tea on top)
  • Sunset Drink (Grande lemonade, 2 pumps of classic syrups, 4 pumps of raspberry syrup, strawberry base on top)
  • Strawberry Foam Matcha Latte (Venti pink drink, vanilla cold foam, a scoop of matcha powder)
  • Apple Pie Frappuccino (Grande apple juice, 2 pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup, vanilla sweet cream cold foam with two pumps of cinnamon dolce in the foam, extra caramel drizzle, cinnamon dolce sprinkles on top).
  • Hot cocoa cold brew (Venti cold brew, 2 pumps of vanilla, 4 pumps of mocha and 1 pump of toasted white mocha, chocolate powder and curls on top)
  • Oreo chocolate chip frappuccino (Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino, white mocha sauce, whipped cream on top)
  • Iced hot chocolate (Double Chocolate Chip Creme Frappuccino, 3 pumps of vanilla syrup, whipped cream, top with whipped cream and mocha drizzle)

How To Customize Starbucks Drinks On App

You can make use of the Starbucks app to customize your drinks easier by selecting different flavors and add-ins. Simply choose your favorite base drink with different flavors, such as cinnamon dolce syrup, apple brown sugar syrup, mocha syrup, etc. You also have options to choose different toppings, juice, sweeteners to create stunning custom Starbucks drinks with ease.

For example, you can select Strawberry Acai refresher as the base drink on the menu, then select Toffee Nut Syrup in Flavors. Then, add light peach juice blend or Apple juice as you like in the juice option, select kiwi or dragonfruit inclusion in add-ins. Finally, if you prefer some creamy mouthfeel, select any cold foam as toppings and add the sweeteners you like. Not sure how this drink tastes, however, it’s possible. Of course, you are going to pay extra for the customization with extra ingredients.


Tips for Ordering a TikTok Starbucks Drink

These drinks are all incredibly delicious and fun to get, but when ordering them, it’s important to remember that they aren’t regular menu beverages. As a result, your barista may not know what you’re talking about if you just ask for “the TikTok Drink.” 

To be a polite and respectful customer, be sure to have the phrasing of your order prepared in advance, ideally in the most straightforward and streamlined way possible. In other words, choose a base drink that requires the slightest modifications possible to get the particular drink you want. 

Of course, be mindful of ordering complicated beverages at peak times or making excessive customizations. Baristas usually have multiple orders to make and can’t spend much time on just one customer. 

With these ordering tips in mind, you can now confidently try any of these unique and delicious TikTok Starbucks drinks.
