The Starbucks Secret Menu Frappuccino With A Harry Potter Twist

If you're a "Harry Potter" fan, there's a good chance you've always wondered what butterbeer tastes like. Is it more butterscotch than beer flavored? And is it actual beer? I mean, underage wizards and witches drink it so it can't be, right? (Although there is that time in "Goblet of Fire" when Winky the tiny house elf gets drunk off the stuff, suggesting there might be a slight alcohol content). Well, there's good news for those who can't make it down to Universal Studios and have always wanted to try a mug of butterbeer: Starbucks has a secret menu item you don't want to miss: the Butterbeer Frappuccino. 

There's no alcohol (or caffeine) included in this tasty drink, just three pumps of caramel and three pumps of toffee nut syrup in a grande Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino. You can order your custom Frappuccino in-store or via the Starbucks app. And while it may be loaded with calories (about 430) and sugar (around 66 grams), it's worth it to feel like you're enjoying a drink with Harry, Ron, and Hermoine at The Three Broomsticks. 

Other Starbucks secret drink varieties

To make your Butterbeer Frappuccino extra special, have the barista top it with whipped cream, a drizzle of cinnamon dolce syrup, and/or a sprinkle of cinnamon powder. If you can't get enough caramel, order a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino instead of the Vanilla Bean and add a few pumps of toffee nut, caramel, and/or cinnamon dolce syrup. If blended drinks aren't your style, you can try a Butterbeer Latte instead. To order this, simply request a whole milk steamer with two shots of espresso, two pumps of caramel syrup, three pumps of toffee nut syrup, and three pumps of cinnamon dolce syrup. 

There's a whole host of secret Starbucks menu drinks inspired by pop culture franchises, such as the Baby Yoda Frappuccino, a Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino with caramel syrup and topped with caramel ribbon crunchies, and the Demogorgan (from "Stranger Things") Frappuccino, which mimics the colors of the unnerving creature by adding white mocha, strawberry puree, and whipped cream topped with mocha drizzle to a Green Tea Frappuccino.
