How to order TikTok drinks from Starbucks
Watching influencers slurp up a creative Starbucks TikTok drink concoction can make your mouth water. But, when you show up to a Starbucks to recreate the drink, how do you make sure you get the exact flavors you want?
Here are a few of our best tips for ordering TikTok drink recipes at Starbucks.
Bring the recipe with you when you order
Ordering a TikTok drink at Starbucks is just like ordering from the Starbucks Secret Menu–you have to give the barista the recipe for your drink with all the add-ins, substitutions, and toppings.
The barista on duty won’t know if a “TikTok Strawberry drink” means the one with a Pink Drink base or a Matcha powder add-on. To make a successful order, write the recipe down (or screenshot it on your phone) before you get in line. (We’ve given helpful TikTok recipes above that are ready to read off to your local barista.)
Be aware that some add-ins are not possible to order through the Starbucks app (We’re looking at you, Vanilla Bean Powder.) To save on confusion, you may want to skip the drive-thru and order complicated drinks at the counter. Also, some flavors like Pumpkin Spice are only available in certain seasons.
List off your drink order in the appropriate sequence:
- First, mention if your drink is hot or iced. (This lets the barista knows whether to write on a paper cup or plastic.)
- Next, choose the size of your drink: Tall (12 oz.), Grande (16 oz.), Venti (20 oz), Iced Venti (24 oz.), or Trenta (31 oz.).
- If your drink is decaf mention it.
- Choose your milk type and if you want your drink sugar-free or “skinny.”
- Say the name of your base drink: Macchiato, latte, Frappuccino, or other.
- Request add-ons and customizations that aren’t a part of the regular drink order. This can include shots of espresso, extra syrups, light ice, etc.
For example, an appropriate sequence would be:
“I’d like an Iced Venti Decaf Skinny Soy Caramel Macchiato with an extra shot of espresso and light ice.”
Be prepared to pay extra
At Starbucks, some add-ons (such as whipped cream) are free. However, vegan milk, extra shots, and some syrups and sauces may cost extra if they are not part of the basic Starbucks drink. Many TikTok Starbucks drinks cost seven dollars or more in the medium Grande size.
However, if you are a part of the Starbucks Rewards program, you can get at least one handcrafted beverage free on your birthday each year.
Counting calories goes out the window
Most TikTok drinks are not designed for dieting. These specialty drinks often include extra syrups and toppings that up the calorie count.
Starbucks offers nutrition information for its standard menu drinks, but once you customize your order, the calorie count is left to your best guess. If you’re watching your waistline, you may not want to drink a TikTok drink every day. However, an over-the-top drink can be a fun treat on the occasion.
Ask nicely (like your mama taught you)
While TikTok Starbucks drinks are fun and tasty for customers, they can create extra work for the baristas. Be patient and prepared to clarify your order as necessary.
A tasty new beverage can be a bright spot in your day. You can shine a light on your barista as well by leaving them with a kind word, a tip in the jar–or both!
You may be a frequent Starbucks customer or rarely darken their door. However, if you scroll through TikTok you are sure to find some delicious Starbucks concoctions that you can’t wait to try.
If you are more into chocolate drinks, there are a lot of entries from this list that you would find in our best Starbucks Chocolate drinks post.

Now it’s your turn to try new TikTok coffee tastes at your neighborhood Starbucks and spice up your life! Let us know your favorite Starbucks drink recipe!
What is the most popular TikTok drink at Starbucks?
The Iced White Mocha TikTok drink with its sweet cream cold foam topping is probably the most famous Starbucks TikTok drink. Starbucks White Mocha and Caramel Macchiato have always been fan favorites. This new TikTok drink combines the best of both of these drinks.
What is the TikTok Starbucks drink with sweet cream?
Many of the TikTok Starbucks drinks have sweet cream cold foam toppings, including the Tres Leches Chai Latte and internet sensation Iced White Mocha TikTok Drink. The cold foam topping is whipped to rest on top of iced drinks.
However, sweet cream is also an add-in that mixes into your drink like a splash of milk. It’s made from 2% milk, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla syrup and is not whipped. Sweet cream can be found in drinks such as the Vietnamese Iced Coffee TikTok Drink.
Does the Starbucks Pink Drink give you energy?
The Starbucks Pink Drink is one of Starbucks’ Refresher drinks. These drinks are mostly fruit based. However, they do include a few drops of green coffee extract which gives them a small amount of caffeine. The caffeine content is much less than regular coffee, black tea, or green tea. The green coffee extract is also relatively tasteless.
What are fruit inclusions at Starbucks?
Fruit inclusions at Starbucks are simply freeze-dried fruit slices. Once these fruit pieces are added to your drink, they have a texture similar to fresh fruit. Most Starbucks Refresher Drinks have fruit inclusions as part of their recipe.
If you don’t want fruit chunks in your drink, you can ask the barista to blend them into your beverage. The most common types of fruit inclusions at Starbucks are blackberries, limes, dragon berries, and freeze-dried strawberries.
