1. Iced Dirty Chai Latte
Iced chai latte is a popular summer tea drink at Starbucks that you can make punchier by “dirtying” it. This means that you add espresso shots to the iced chai tea latte.
The iced dirty chai tea latte is the most popular iced coffee on Starbucks secret menu.
Bear in mind that each shot of espresso adds about 70-75mg of caffeine to the 95mg of caffeine in a regular iced chai tea latte.
We recommend adding 1,2,3,3 shots of espresso in a Tall, Grande, Venti, and Trenta cup of iced chai tea latte respectively.
2. Baby Yoda Cold Brew
The fascination with the adorable Grogu, Baby Yoda, continues even as we await the next season of the Mandalorian. In 2020, Baby Yoda merchandise was flying off the shelves and coffee lovers wasted no time coming up with a Baby Yoda cold coffee.
To order the secret Baby Yoda cold brew at Starbucks, ask for a white mocha cold brew with matcha-infused sweet cream cold foam. The green cold foam topping depicts Baby Yoda’s head.
3. Baby Yoda Latte
A Baby Yoda latte is an iced latte of your choice topped with matcha cold foam. You can also have a Baby Yoda mocha by simply adding matcha cold foam.
Matcha cold foam tastes great on most iced coffees but my favorite is an iced brown sugar oat milk latte with matcha cold foam.
4. Iced Caramel Macchiato with Cinnamon Dolce
This is a regular iced caramel macchiato sweetened with both vanilla and cinnamon dolce. The drink is layered as follows: vanilla and cinnamon dolce at the bottom, then milk and ice come in next, and extra caramel drizzle on the top.
To order it, ask for an iced caramel macchiato with cinnamon dolce syrup.
5. Honey Bee Cold Brew
Starbucks’ secret honey bee cold brew is cold brew coffee with vanilla and honey blend and a splash of almond milk. It is topped with sweet cream cold foam infused with Starbucks’ honey blend.
Unfortunately, Starbucks discontinued the toasted honey topping which was superb at adding some zing to this drink.
Order a honey bee cold brew by asking for a honey almond milk cold brew with vanilla and topped with honey blend cold foam.
6. Upside-Down Iced Caramel Macchiato
Have you tried the iced caramel macchiato which is on the Starbucks menu? You can order the same drink upside-down which means the steps of making the drink are flipped.
When you drink an upside-down iced caramel macchiato, the flavors come to you as if you are drinking a hot caramel macchiato. This means that you first taste the espresso and caramel. So if you love the taste of straight iced espresso, the secret upside-down iced caramel macchiato is a great place to start.
You can read everything about the upside-down iced caramel macchiato here.
7. Iced White Mocha with Toffee Nut
Toffee nut is one of my favorite holiday flavors from Starbucks because it is delicious in almost every drink that you add. I am also a big fan of oat milk. Toffee nut is delicious in oat milk.
One of my favorite secret mocha drinks is the iced white mocha with toffee nut syrup. Try it with oat milk and it is so oh!
When ordering, ask for an iced white mocha with toffee nut or an iced white mocha with oat milk and toffee nut.
8. Cookies and Cream Cold Brew
Your cold brew does not have to be boring. You can add a chewy twist to it but first, you need to add vanilla and white mocha sauce into the cold brew and then top it with mocha-infused cold foam. Finally, ask for the chewy cookie crumble sprinkles on top.
Some people like to have some of the sprinkles mixed into the cold brew for an extra chewy edge.
Order this drink by asking for cold brew coffee with vanilla and white mocha sauce, and topped with dark mocha cold foam and cookie crumbs.
9. Iced Snickerdoodle Latte
Cinnamon dolce syrup is one of the best festive flavors to look out for in the fall. It gets even better when you combine it with white mocha.
To order an iced snickerdoodle latte, ask for an iced cinnamon dolce latte with half pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup and white mocha sauce. If you get the full pumps, the drink will be too sweet and overly calorific.
The half pumps mean that if a venti cup is supposed to get four pumps of cinnamon dolce, it gets two pumps of cinnamon and two pumps of white mocha sauce.
Here are other delectable lattes from Starbucks.
10. Valentine’s Cold Brew
The Valentine’s cold brew or chocolate-covered strawberry cold brew is a great way to show love to someone who appreciates having a decadent cold coffee on a hot day.
Right from its topping that consists of chocolate curls and strawberry cold foam to the raspberry and mocha sauce in the cold brew, this drink helps show your love and care for your significant other or yourself.
Since most baristas will not understand you if you just ask for Valentine’s cold brew, here is the right way to order it.
11. Junior Mints Cold Brew
Junior mint is a chocolate-covered, peppermint cream candy. It has a rich chocolate and minty flavor. You can get this flavor in cold coffee by ordering a junior mint cold brew secret drink.
Rest assured that most baristas will not understand you if you just ask for a junior mint cold brew. Instead, ask for cold brew coffee with equal pumps of dark and white mocha. Then ask for a peppermint cold foam which is infused with one scoop of matcha to top the drink.
12. Iced Cookie Butter Latte
You can imitate the creamy, buttery cookie flavor of cookie butter by ordering Starbucks’ secret menu iced cookie butter latte.
Simply ask for an iced dirty chai latte with brown sugar and oat milk. Oat milk adds a smooth butteriness that combines superbly with brown sugar, espresso, and chai.
If espresso is not to your fancy, ask for an iced chai latte with brown sugar and oat milk.
13. Chocolate Mousse Cold Brew
Chocolate mousse is generally made of cream, chocolate, eggs, and sugar. It has a distinct chocolate taste that is neither overpowering nor bitter. Although it has sugar, it is not too sweet. The secret menu chocolate mousse cold brew mimic this taste perfectly.
To order the chocolate mousse cold brew at Starbucks, ask for a cold brew with mocha and vanilla, and topped with mocha cold foam.
Since you do not want the drink to be too sweet, the pumps of vanilla should be half the pumps of mocha. For example, for a venti chocolate mousse cold brew, ask for two pumps of vanilla and four pumps of mocha in the cold brew, and a mocha cold foam topping.
14. Iced White Mocha with Strawberry Cold Foam
We already talked about the delicious Valentine’s cold brew but if you are not in the mood for cold brew, you can order Valentine’s flavors with iced white mocha.
Simply ask for an iced white mocha with strawberry puree cold foam and chocolate curls or mocha drizzle at the top.

15. Tiktok Iced White Mocha
The popular Starbucks Tiktok iced white mocha has white mocha sauce, milk, and ice, and is topped with vanilla cold foam and drizzled caramel.
Simply order an iced white mocha with cold foam and drizzled caramel.
16. Cinnamon Roll Cold Brew
Cinnamon rolls are tasty pastries with a lightly sweetened, buttery flavor with tangy and spicy undertones. You can mimic this flavor by ordering a cold brew with both white mocha and cinnamon dolce, and a cinnamon dolce topping.
The sweet spot for the combination of cinnamon dolce and white mocha in the cold brew is adding them at a ratio of 1:2.
17. Iced Cinnamon Roll Mocha
The Iced cinnamon roll mocha is a white mocha with cinnamon dolce syrup and cinnamon cold foam topping.
The ratio of cinnamon dolce syrup and white mocha sauce should be 1:2 so that you add two pumps of white mocha sauce for every pump of cinnamon dolce.
18. Starbucks Liquid Cocaine
Do not be spooked by the name as Starbucks does not sell cocaine. Liquid cocaine at Starbucks refers to a strong and sweet, iced espresso drink.
It usually comes in a grande cup with ice, four espresso shots, and four pumps of white chocolate sauce. There is no milk or water to cut the espresso. Liquid cocaine is highly caffeinated for its size with about 280-300mg of caffeine.
To order liquid cocaine, ask for four shots of espresso over ice in a grande cup with four pumps of white mocha.
A secret menu iced coffee from Starbucks is not necessarily a new drink invention. Oftentimes a new twist is added to an already existing drink to come up with the secret menu flavor. For example, the secret iced dirty chai latte is an iced chai latte from the core menu with espresso shots.
When ordering Starbucks iced coffee from the secret menu, be sure to state the ingredients that go into the drink as some baristas may not be familiar with the drink.
