You are going to want to stop what you’re doing and head to Starbucks. There’s a secret menu drink that’s perfect for the holiday season. It’s called the Candy Cane Cold Brew.

Starbucks’ Cold Brew coffee is great for people who are not looking for a super intense coffee taste. They do Cold Brew right with all their different options on the menu. But the Starbucks Secret Menu opens up so many more possibilities for my fellow coffee-drinkers. One of these possibilities being the Candy Cane Cold Brew.

The Candy Cane Cold Brew makes you feel like a child again, eating a candy cane, with a nice, adult kick from that caffeine in the coffee—and we all know the Holidays are a time we love to get in touch with our inner child.

Since this is a Secret Menu drink, you have to make sure you order this drink correctly. If you head to Starbucks and ask for it, the baristas will not admit to knowing what you are even talking about—after all, it is a secret.

You start your order with a Sweet Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew so you already know it is going to be a sweet drink!

How to Order

To order, repeat this to the repeat: Venti Sweet Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew, with no vanilla, add four pumps of white chocolate mocha, two pumps of peppermint, two pumps of peppermint in the foam, with holiday sprinkles on top.

Of course, the sprinkles on top are optional, but they certainly add to the overall satisfaction and feel of the drink. Don’t forget to say please and thank you to your barista as you wouldn’t be able to enjoy this drink without them!
