TikTok Starbucks drink

Are you tired of your regular Starbucks order? If that’s the case, why not try the viral TikTok Starbucks drink? Besides viral dance trends, the video-sharing platform is also a goldmine for neat tips and tricks. There are even dedicated hashtags for food and drinks. These days, we see more and more users on the app raving about a specific beverage that you can get from Starbucks. Thanks to the company’s liberal customization policy, you can create a new favorite drink that suits your personal taste almost every day. And it looks like TikTok users took that to heart.

This customized off-menu item is so popular on TikTok that people are now calling it “The TikTok drink.” Alongside it, we’ve also seen a rise of other “secret menu” beverages taking the TikTok Discover page by storm. However, since they are not on the official Starbucks menu, baristas are not trained in making them. Going up to the counter and asking for “the TikTok drink” will probably just annoy your local Starbucks barista. You have to be specific when ordering Starbucks secret menu drinks. More on that later on. Ahead, we’ve rounded up all the best and delicious TikTok Starbucks drinks and how to order them.

What is the “TikTok Starbucks Drink”?

Okay, now you know about the existence of this drink, your next question probably is, what is the TikTok drink at Starbucks? What’s exactly in it? Based on the Starbucks iced white chocolate mocha, this customized drink has added caramel drizzle and a vanilla sweet cream cold foam on top. Traditionally, the brand’s iced white mocha uses whipped cream. While cold foam consists of the same ingredients as whipped cream, it has a different texture. It’s more airy, creamy, and velvety.

By substituting whipped cream with cold foam, you get a frothy and fluffy top layer that’s akin to melted ice cream or soft meringue. On top of that, Starbucks uses non-fat milk in creating its cold foam. So, not only does it result in a more foamy texture, but it has fewer calories than whipped cream. Furthermore, the cold foam is flavored with vanilla syrup to get that sweet and decadent flavor. Meanwhile, the extra pump of caramel drizzle on top adds a rich, very sweet, and slightly toast taste to the drink. 

How to Order the TikTok Starbucks Drink

Of course, you can’t just order a Tiktok drink, and expect your barista to instantly know the ingredients. Start by ordering an iced white mocha as your base drink. Request a vanilla sweet cream cold foam instead of the standard whipped cream. Lastly, ask for a caramel drizzle on the sides of the cup and an extra pump on top.

Other Viral TikTok Starbucks Drinks and How to Order Them

Besides the modified iced white mocha with sweet cream foam, there’s also a vast variety of other buzzworthy TikTok Starbucks drinks. Here are some of the most popular, colorful, and Instagram-worthy ones you can get.

 

Blended Strawberry Acai Refresher

Another highly talked about Starbucks TikTok drink is the Strawberry Acai Refresher. If you’ve ever had a slushy growing up, you’ll find that this beverage offers a similar taste and consistency to the summer indulgence. Its based drink is the Starbucks Strawberry Acai Refresher with freeze-dried strawberries and blackberries. Additionally, it also has a matching size scoop of ice. All these blended together create a fruity and sweet yet a little tangy drink that’s perfect to beat the summer heat. To order this famous TikTok Starbucks drink, order a blended Strawberry Acai Refresher in the size of your choice, with a matching size scoop of ice. Ask for an extra scoop of strawberries and blackberries for a Tall drink. If you’re ordering a Venti, ask for two scoops of the berries, while a Grande-sized order should have three scoops.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

If you’re looking for a beverage that will wake you up in the morning, try a Vietnamese-style iced coffee. While this TikTok Starbucks coffee drink doesn’t use the same techniques as authentic Vietnamese coffee, it sure does a great job recreating the same flavors. If you’re unfamiliar with Vietnamese coffee, it’s famous for its distinctively strong and sweet taste, thanks to the Robusta beans and sweet condensed milk added. While Starbucks uses Arabica coffee beans for its coffee-based drinks, you can still get the same bitter and strong taste.

Hailed by some as the best Starbucks iced coffee, this recipe was first shared by barista and TikTok user gerrigerrigerri. He showed his followers on the app how to order this drink. Simply order a double shot espresso on ice with a pump of classic syrup and vanilla sweet cream foam on top. This results in a TikTok Starbucks drink with sweet cream that’s bold and caffeinated. It’s the perfect drink to wake your senses, especially if you spent the night watching all the best movies on Netflix.

The next Starbuck order on our lists diverges from your regular cup of joe. This TikTok Starbucks drink is more of a dessert in a cup than anything else. It tastes of sweet, indulgent cream with a burst of fruity strawberries in it. On top of that, you also get a slightly nutty flavor and sandy texture thanks to the graham cracker toppings. Doesn’t that sound just like your classic strawberry cheesecake?

To order this decadent treat, start off by ordering a Strawberry Crème Frappuccino in the size of your choice. If you’re ordering a Venti, ask for three scoops of vanilla bean powder, four pumps of white mocha, and three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup. Request for some graham cracker toppings added at the bottom of the cup, and on top of the drink as well.

Say goodbye to The Cheesecake Factory! This drink is rich and creamy, and thanks to the added graham, you get a unique texture that’s enjoyable to drink. What’s more, it’s also a beauty to look at. Any TikTok user or VSCO girl would love to indulge in this drink while taking the cutest photos and videos.

The Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino admittedly didn’t get its start on TikTok. But it has been an open secret among Starbucks lovers for years. Now, it’s making rounds in the TikTok community for its tasty flavor reminiscent of cozy nights-in during the fall and early winter seasons.

You can enjoy the classic pumpkin pie flavor Starbucks style by ordering one of the coffeehouse’s seasonal drinks that are available all year round —the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino. Ask for pumps of dolce syrup and scoops of cinnamon powder blended in. Lastly, ask for some cinnamon dolce sprinkles on top of the whipped cream.

The Starbucks Pink Drink was once a secret menu item until the company officially introduced it to the menu due to its growing popularity. Essentially, the original Starbucks Pink Drink is a Strawberry Acai Refresher that uses coconut milk instead of water. It also has scoops of mixed strawberries and blackberries in it for a refreshing summer taste.

Hailed by some as one of the best Starbucks drinks ever, TikTok users actually took a step further by modifying the original Starbucks Pink Drink recipe. Instead of coconut milk, people are substituting heavy cream in their orders. Scoops of vanilla bean powder are mixed in, then added with whipped cream on top. With that, you get a drink that’s similar to a creamy strawberry milkshake.

  • Add two scoops of vanilla bean powder
  • Top it off with whipped cream

Similar to the Pink Drink, the Twix Frappuccino is another Starbucks secret menu item that has been circulating for years now. Unlike the Starbucks Pink Drink, though, it hasn’t made its way to the company’s official menu just yet. But you can still enjoy this drool-worthy drink that has the perfect combination of caramel and mocha with a bit of crunch to it.

Order a Grande-size Caramel Frappuccino as your base drink and ask to lessen, yes, you read that right, lessen the caramel syrup by a pump from the standard three pumps. To emulate that Twix flavor, ask for two pumps of hazelnut syrup and java chips. For toppings, ask your Starbucks barista for an extra caramel and mocha drizzle on top of the whipped cream to finish the drink off. All of these combined lead you to a drink that tastes just like the chocolatey-caramel candy bar, sans the cookie center. But what it lacks in the center, it makes up for with the java chips fused in the whole drink.

 

Twix Frappuccino Secret Menu Drink:

  • Order a Caramel Frappuccino (Grande)
  • Ask for two pumps of caramel syrup
  • Two pumps of hazelnut syrups
  • Java chips
  • Top it off with whipped cream with caramel and mocha drizzle
