How To Order

Below is a detailed step-by-step guide to follow when ordering from the Starbucks secret menu for 2021.

1. The Size

This helps the barista determine which cup to use so they know what changes are needed and can write them clearly on the side of the cup.

2. Original Drink

The barista needs to know the base drink so they can make a custom version of it.

3. Substitutions

In the substitution phase of the order, you can tell the barista what substitutions you want. For example, if you want almond milk instead of regular milk or five shots of espresso instead of two shots.

4. Additions and toppings

The last step is to add extras like whipped cream or caramel tops.
