Starbucks Pink with a Wink & 24 other secret menu items for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is, if nothing else, an excuse to consume all things chocolately and sweet. Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to customize your Starbucks order to fit the bill — you just need to know what to ask for.

The coffee chain adds a few fun drinks to its Valentine’s Day menu each year, but there also exists an entire secret menu full of special concoctions that social media has dreamed up. These mixes are pink, they're sugary, and they’re the exact type of delicious Valentine's treat you deserve.

Because the secret menu isn’t an official Starbucks menu, though, it’s necessary to pay attention to how you order. If you ask for a “Raspberry Cheesecake Frappe” your barista will have no idea what you’re talking about until you explain the step-by-step process behind the drink. (This is also why it’s necessary to tip generously and apologize a few times if you feel inclined.)

It’s also worth noting that you’re not able to order some secret menu items on the Starbucks app — if, for instance, they require a step like blending strawberry purée into cold foam, or another equally unique step.

Now that that’s settled, here are 25 Starbucks secret Valentine's Day menu drinks you’ll want to try this holiday season. Whether you prefer your drinks with a hearty caffeine kick or just want to sip on something pink and gorgeous, you’re sure to find your perfect match on this list.


Pink With A Wink


Last year, Starbucks debuted the Pink With A Wink, and while it’s not officially available on the menu anymore, you can order it by simply asking for a Pink Drink with chocolate cream cold foam. If you’re ordering on the app, make sure to add the chocolate cream cold foam via the Toppings section underneath the Customizations tab.


Valentine’s Day Frappe

The Starbucks Secret Menu, an unofficial site that has all the best Starbucks ingredient combos, has concocted what they've dubbed the Valentine's Day Frappuccino.

To try it, order a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino, but ask for it to be made with white mocha instead of regular mocha. Ask for a couple of pumps of raspberry syrup and voila — a drink that's equal parts fruity, chocolatey, and pink.


Strawberry Cheesecake Frappuccino

There’s no need to wait until Valentine’s Day dinner to have your dessert. Kick off the day on a sweet note with this strawberry cheesecake Frappuccino.

Order a vanilla bean Frappuccino with strawberry purée, white mocha syrup, and cinnamon dolce syrup. To add a cake-like texture, ask to top the whipped cream with more strawberry purée and caramel sugar.


White Chocolate Strawberry Iced Latte

Whether you’re looking for a white chocolate take on the chocolate-covered strawberry secret menu drinks, or just want to try some new aesthetics, then this is a perfect treat for you. Order an iced latte with two shots of espresso, two pumps of white mocha, and vanilla cold foam with strawberry purée mixed in.


Mocha & Strawberry Pink Drink

There are a few chocolate-covered strawberry drinks already on the secret menu. However, if you’re a lover of the Pink Drink (or want an option that’s easier to order so that you don’t annoy your barista), this is a must-try. Order a Pink Drink with mocha cold foam, and bon appétit. No strawberry stems included.


Strawberry Shortcake Frappuccino

This drink requires a little bit of explanation but the result is, as its name suggests, a drink that tastes like strawberry shortcake.

Per the Starbucks Secret Menu recipe, ask for strawberry juice filled to the first line of the cup and your milk of choice to the next line. Then, ask them to blend a couple of scoops of vanilla bean powder, a few pumps of white mocha syrup, and a pump of toffee nut syrup with a creme base and ice.

Then, top it all off with whipped cream. Or you could use the above TikTok recipe for a similar result.


Pink Drink With Sweet Cream

This drink is perfect if you're looking for something unique but don't want to give your barista a laundry list of items and substitutions. Just ask for a grande iced Pink Drink with Vanilla Sweet Cold Foam. The result is a drink almost too pretty to drink. Almost.


Love Bug Frappuccino

A blog called Totally The Bomb is known for its brilliant Starbucks drink ideas, and their Love Bug Frappuccino is no different. To try it, order a Grande Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino, then ask for one pump of raspberry syrup, a scoop of java chips, mocha drizzle, and whipped cream with cookie crumbles on top. It's like all your favorite Valentine's Day treats wrapped up into one delicious drink.


The Dirty Valentine

Calm down — The Dirty Valentine is dubbed as such because it's got coffee in it. Start by asking for a Cafe Vanilla Frappuccino. Then ask for strawberry sauce and java chips to be added in. Have it topped with whipped cream and a mocha drizzle and enjoy!


The Love Bean

The Love Bean is the drink you'll want to get if you're craving something pretty and pink. Ask for a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with a couple of pumps of raspberry. Have it topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls and sip away.


Love On The Rocks

Like a delicious mocktail, Love On The Rocks is fruity, sweet, and served on ice. Ask for a Berry Hibiscus Refresher without the blackberries. Have your barista replace the water with apple juice and add a pump or two of raspberry syrup. Top it off with a splash of Passion Iced Tea and enjoy.


Lovestruck Refresher

If the Secret Menu Love on the Rocks refresher doesn’t fit the vibe of your V-Day, a lovestruck refresher should be the perfect match for some smitten sippin’. Order a strawberry açaí refresher with raspberry syrup, top with cold foam, and add strawberry purée.


Raspberry Cheesecake Frappuccino

A cheesecake you can drink! To order the Raspberry Cheesecake Frappuccino just ask for a White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino with a pump or two of Raspberry Syrup added in. That's it!


White Chocolate Strawberry Frapp

More of a white chocolate-covered strawberry person? The White Chocolate Strawberry Frapp is what you seek. Ask for a Venti Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino, two pumps of White Mocha, and no purée. Top with whipped cream and holiday toppings (if they're still available). The result is as sweet as it sounds.


Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Creme Frappe

If you're a fan of chocolate-covered strawberries, this is the drink for you. To order a chocolate-covered strawberry Frappuccino, ask for a Strawberries and Creme Frapp with java chips added in.

Have your barista top it off with a mocha drizzle for an extra chocolatey drink. TikTok has a few other ways to order a chocolate-covered strawberry drink, too, if you're looking for a different variation.


Java Berry

Originally, the Java Berry drink was a combination of a Java Chip Frappuccino topped with pink raspberry-infused whipped cream. Unfortunately, Starbucks no longer carries their raspberry-infused whipped cream. Instead, ask for a few pumps of raspberry syrup for a fun berry flavor.


Rose Gold Drink

The rose gold trend is over when the Starbucks secret menu says it's over. To try out the Rose Gold Drink for yourself, you'll need to ask for a Venti Mango Dragonfruit Refresher with no water, peach juice, four pumps of pineapple ginger, and three pumps of raspberry.


Strawberry Peach Drink

The Strawberry Peach Drink starts with a Strawberry Açaí Lemonade, adds in peach juice, gets double blended, and is topped with whipped cream. It will be like the most delicious smoothie you've ever tasted.


Pink Starburst Frapp

You've likely already heard of the Pink Starburst Frappuccino, and Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to give it a try. Start by ordering a blended strawberry lemonade (ask for less purée). Then ask your barista to add a pump of raspberry and a few pumps of vanilla. If you've ever wanted to drink a pink Starburst before, this is the Frapp for you.


Blended Pink Drink

This one is as simple as it sounds, but the results are no less delicious. To get a blended Pink Drink, order a Pink Drink with extra ice and strawberry purée. Then, asked for it to be double-blended, and ta-da! A smoothie-esque version of the iconic Pink Drink.


Valentine’s Day Cold Brew

If you’re a proud member of the “cold brew even when it’s cold” camp, this Valentine’s Day Cold Brew needs to be on your radar.

Start with a grande cup, lightly iced, with five pumps of white mocha. Here’s where it gets tricky — you’ll need to blend 100 milliliters of vanilla sweet cream and 50 milliliters of strawberry purée and pour it on top of the cold brew when it’s done.

You can also ask to add cocoa powder or chocolate curls on top if they have it.


Chocolate-Covered Strawberry

Nothing says “Valentine’s Day” quite like chocolate and strawberries, and this chocolate-covered strawberry bev is no exception.

To order it, just ask for a venti cold brew with two pumps of raspberry syrup, two pumps of mocha, two pumps of white chocolate mocha, and cold foam that’s been blended with strawberry purée.

The end result is a chocolate drink with a pink topping, which is basically the inverse of the Pink Drink with chocolate cream cold foam.


Valentine’s Day Pink Drink

Similar to the Pink Drink with sweet cream, the Valentine’s Day Pink Drink can be ordered by asking for a venti Pink Drink with light ice and vanilla sweet cream cold foam — but this time with strawberry purée added to it. You can also ask for extra strawberry pieces on top for even more fruity goodness.


Cupid Frappuccino

Be prepared to be struck by Cupid’s arrow after you try the Cupid Frappuccino. To taste the magical sip for yourself, you’ll just have to ask for a White Mocha Cream Frapp with raspberry and strawberry inclusions. Yup, that’s it.


Iced Raspberry White Chocolate Mocha Macchiato

Raspberry. White chocolate. Mocha. What else could you need on V-Day? If you want to treat your valentine (or yourself) to the unique sip, make sure to ask for an iced macchiato with three pumps of white mocha, three pumps of raspberry, strawberry purée around the cup, your desired number of espresso shots, and a dash of even more strawberry purée on top.
