Super Duper Awesome Secret Starbucks Drinks!

Stumbled across the best kept secret the other day. Starbucks has Secret drinks! Like secret-not-on-the-menu-feel-cooler-for-asking-for-it drinks! I had no freaking clue you could get all this amazingness at Starbucks. I feel lied to. Or left out. Or dumb for not looking this up before.

Prepare to have a major Starbucks craving after this. xo

A Red Eye or Black Eye, sure -- that's one and two extra shots of espresso in a regular drip, respectively. But those that go for green get a sure-to-jack-you-up three shots of espresso boost to their cup of coffee.

A Chai latte (hot or iced) with a shot of espresso added in. And if you want two shots? That's called a "Double Dirty" or "Extra Dirty" Chai.

Sometimes also called a "Penguin Mocha," this drink combines the white chocolate mocha with the regular mocha for those who can't pick a favorite. Or, if you really want to take it to the next level, ask to have raspberry flavoring added for something called the "Red Tux" Mocha.

helllllooo amazing-ness!
Perhaps a little deceptively named, as there are no actual piece of cake or cake batter in it, this beverage has vanilla and almond syrup added to a Vanilla Frappuccino.
Like to go heavy on the whipped cream? Ask for a "Super Cream" version of your Frappe and you'll get half a cup of whipped cream blended in.

This one probably classifies more as an in-the-know than a "secret" one. Order any Frappe "affogato-style" and you'll get a shot of hot espresso added on top of your drink as opposed to having it blended in.

And the award for best alliteration in a Starbucks drink name goes to the Three C's: Cinnamon Dolce Latte with caramel syrup and chocolate mocha syrup.

Who knew?! I didn't! Sooo the Super Cream and the Cake Batter Frapp are on my to-do list!

Hope everyone is doing well. I've been MIA for a while now. Been so busy with travel, school, work, name it, it's on my list. Wishing I could be a stay at home blogger, writer, artist, Starbucks drinking cool girl. Sigh. One day!

But for now I am a working fool. Oy.
