If you frequent Starbucks often then you probably have a go-to drink. It is most likely a tried-and-true classic from the coffee chain's regular menu.
What most people don't know is that you can actually order special customized drinks from a "secret" menu created by baristas and dedicated customers. The menu isn't official so it isn't listed anywhere in its entirety but every so often some of the drink recipes will circulate online.
Some of the drinks on the secret menu have gained so much popularity that baristas around the world know them by name but there some that are too specific to be memorized. So if you ever get around to ordering off this menu, you should do it by recipe not name. Your barista will appreciate it.
If you'd like to switch things up and try a new treat, here are 10 delicious drinks from the secret menu you can get on your next trip to Starbucks.
