You Can Order A Honey Bee Cold Brew At Starbucks, But You Better Know The Recipe

From the recently released Bubbletastic Frappuccino to the Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso, Starbucks is well known for creating delicious attention-grabbing drinks. While their main menu offerings are iconic, it's the items on the Starbucks' Secret Menu (like the Malibu-tasting creation that took TikTok by storm!) that really break the internet. Case in point: the newly widely talked about Honey Bee Cold Brew.

Our friends over at Totally The Bomb came up with the unexpected combo, and the end result will make you feel like you're frolicking through flower fields with just one sip. Made with honey syrup (which Starbucks added to its menu earlier this year), almond milk, and cold foam, this is one secret offering you'll be happy didn't stay hidden.

Though the Starbucks Secret Menu isn't really isn't that much of a secret, if you don't know exactly what's included in the hidden item you're requesting, you may not be able to score yourself one. So while you may be tempted to head up to your nearest location and ask for the "Honey Bee Cold Brew," it's better to know the ingredients when you politely (!) ask your barista to create this cup of glory for you.

According to the recipe Totally The Bomb posted on their blog, it's super easy to get yourself one of these drinks. All you'll need to do is start off by ordering a Venti Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew with light ice (plus that honey). After that, let your barista know that you'll want to add two pumps of vanilla syrup and would like it to be topped with Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Foam. Be aware that the last additive will cost you an extra dollar. Last but not least, ask for a drizzle of honey and—if available—a sprinkle of Toasted Honey Topping (because you can never have too much honey!)

If that sounds like your type of dairy-free party, you better be on your way! Before you head out though, make sure you write this one down so you can (again—nicely!) ask your barista to create this sweet summer drink on your next Starbucks trip. Also, keep in mind that secret menu items usually take a little time to create, so please exercise patience when you get there. After all, kindness goes a long way!
