And while the Starbucks secret menu is packed with deliciously decadent and caffeine-dense items all year long (so long as you know how to order them, anyway), we can’t help but be craving something a little extra fresh off the not-so-official menu for spring. With that said, here are our favorite secret spring Starbucks drinks you need to order this season:
1. Cadbury Creme Egg Frappuccino
Just because Easter is over doesn’t mean you can’t still indulge in your favorite Easter basket item in drink form. That’s right, we’re talking Cadbury Creme Eggs, the unmistakable foil-wrapped chocolate delights—only in this case, make it drinkable! To try one for yourself, order a Java Chip Frappuccino blended with one pump of vanilla syrup, one pump Frappuccino Roast syrup, one pump of caramel syrup and a whopping two tablespoons of vanilla bean powder. To really add the finishing creme egg touch, ask for extra caramel drizzle and/or whipped cream.

2. The So-Called ‘Spring Blossom Refresher’
This TikTok-beloved drink is supposed to taste like cherry blossom in a cup, making it perfect for spring. Whether or not this is true in reality, you’ll have to find out for yourself. You can do just that by ordering a Pink Drink with two pumps of vanilla syrup, sweet cream, one scoop of matcha and one pump of raspberry.
3. Blended Cool Lime Raspberry Refresher
If you’re in the mood for a refresher that’s a little more refreshing, then this one might be a safer bet. Raspberry and lime are always a winning combo, so try this DIY secret menu recipe out for yourself by ordering a Cool Lime Refresher with lemonade and a few pumps of raspberry syrup, then ask for it to be blended.
4. Strawberry Passion Lemonade
This sweet creation tastes like sipping on straight summertime, making it a great way to brighten up a dreary spring day. It’s fairly simple compared to other items on this list, too, involving just a Strawberry Acai Refresher that’s shaken with lemonade and raspberry syrup, then topped with passion tea.
5. The Fuzzy Peach Refresher
If you haven’t taken note yet, Starbucks’ springtime secret menu leans pretty heavily toward Refreshers. This one especially deserves a spot on this list due to the unique addition of vanilla that balances the fruity notes, and all it takes to order is asking for a Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher with a little bit of coconut milk, half peach juice and a pump (or two if you’re going Venti) of vanilla syrup.
6. Pink Drink With Vanilla Foam
If you’re the type who’s typically afraid of ordering an ultra-complicated item from the secret menu, then consider this drink our gift to you. It’s super simple, involving just two readily available ingredients: The Starbucks Pink Drink and vanilla cold foam. It’s a more light and refreshing (aka, perfect for spring) version of the delicious but sometimes too sweet Strawberry Crème Frappuccino.
7. The ‘Easter Bunny Frappuccino’
Looking for a more tart and creamy take on the last drink? Another Eastery delight to try out for spring (even once all your colored eggs are long gone) is the so-called “Easter Bunny Frappuccino,” which is another simple yet super sweet secret menu drink that takes just two items to order. All you have to do is order a Strawberry Crème Frappuccino and add raspberry syrup.
8. Iced Cherry Blossom Latte
Don’t worry coffee lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you entirely on this list of secret spring Starbucks menu items for you to try. This yummy drink tastes a lot like a raspberry mocha chocolate truffle, making it the perfect addition to your spring drink lineup. It is a considerably longer recipe though, so you may want to order it through the app to avoid confusing (or irritating) your barista at the counter. To order it, ask for an Iced White Chocolate Mocha with raspberry syrup, topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam—but ask for strawberry puree and two scoops of vanilla bean powder to be mixed into that foam. Complicated? Maybe. Worth it? We’ll let your taste buds be the judge.
