The customized drinks from the so-called “secret menu” at Starbucks often become just as popular as the regular drinks featured on the official Starbucks menu. The trick is knowing exactly what to order, as there isn’t an actual menu to order from — you just have to know the specific combination of ingredients that will create the desired concoction.

It would be great to sip poolside, or it could even simply provide an escape to a warm beach in your mind, even if you’re stuck at work or running errands.
TikTok user @sublime_artist is a Starbucks barista and says she came up with the drink a year ago. She took to the social media platform to show how to properly order the secret menu item — and she added a bit of a twist. She recommends ordering either a splash of peach juice or strawberry puree at the top:

“This is my go to drink honestly,” wrote user Karen Guzman.
“I added vanilla cold foam and pineapple ginger in the foam so good thank you for this drink,” wrote Denise_Allen.
