Valentine's Day is, if nothing else, an excuse to consume all things pink, sugary, and sweet. While Starbucks hasn't announced any of their 2021 Valentine's Day line-up, there are plenty of Starbucks secret Valentine's Day menu drinks you'll want to try in the meantime. They're pink! They're sweet! They will be the delicious Valentine you deserve.

Last year, Starbucks' Valentine's Day menu was full of sweets, treats, and yummy deals. They ran a happy hour the day before Valentine's Day, offering buy one, get one drinks from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. Fingers crossed the same will be true this year.

Fortunately, you won’t need to wait around to give the secret menu a try as it utilizes menu items available all year. Just a reminder: the secret menu is not an official Starbucks menu. So, if you order a “Raspberry Cheesecake Frapp,” your barista will have no idea what you’re talking about. Also, be nice to your barista. Tip generously. Apologize a few times if you feel inclined.

Now that that’s settled, here are 15 Starbucks secret Valentine's Day menu drinks you’ll want to try. Whether you prefer your drinks with a hearty caffeine kick or just want something pink and gorgeous, there’s something on this list for you.

1

Valentine’s Day Frapp

The Starbucks Secret Menu, an unofficial site that has all things secret menu, has concocted what they've dubbed the Valentine's Day Frappuccino. Order a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino, but ask for it to be made with white mocha instead of regular mocha. Ask for a couple pumps of raspberry syrup and voila! A drink that's equal parts fruity, chocolatey, and pink.

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 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

Blog Totally The Bomb is known for its brilliant Starbucks drink ideas. The Love Bug Frappuccino is no different. First, order a Grande Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino.

Rose Gold Drink

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). Have them add a pump of raspberry and a few pumps of vanilla. If you've ever wanted to drink a pink Starburst, this is the Frapp for you.

Or you could just order what you want and have your barista write "I Love You" on your cup. Thus, making every drink a Valentine's Day drink.
