You can also add sweeteners to make the drink sweeter or add any other flavor for a splash of excitement.

9. Nitro cold brew

Nitrogen-infused coffee sets this one apart from the Starbucks cold brew coffee with milk.

The coffee is injected with nitrogen gas, which does three things for the coffee’s taste:

  • It makes the drink bubble and foam, similar to how a beer might. This will help make the drinks stand out from a regular cup of coffee.
  • It makes the coffee thicker. As a result, you don’t have to mix in creamers or milk to give the beverage a bit more substance, and the coffee takes on a slightly creamy texture.
  • It Reduces bitterness and acidity in coffee. This appeals to those who generally don’t enjoy the natural flavor of coffee and need to add cream, milk, or sugar.

These are the nine cold brew beverages on the Starbucks menu. Did you know, though, that Starbucks also has a secret menu?

The Starbucks secret menu has several delicious cold brew beverages that use various combinations of different ingredients.

Let’s explore the nine best secret menu cold brew beverages on the Starbucks secret menu!

Cold brew secret menu drinks

Original Starbucks employees created the Starbucks secret menu and became a platform for wannabe baristas worldwide to share their Starbucks creations!

One thing to remember if you’re ordering off the Starbucks secret menu is not all baristas know the secret menu recipes.

However, many often make unposted beverages at a customer’s request.

So, bringing a copy of the secret menu recipe with specific instructions is a good idea because you might need to walk your barista through the process.

Otherwise, they may not know how to make your desired drink.

It also helps to ensure the barista has all the necessary ingredients before making the drink.

Bigger and more localized Starbucks restaurants should have most ingredients, but checking first’s always a good idea.

Let’s look at nine of the most delicious Starbucks secret menu beverages.

1. Chocolate mousse cold brew

If you love chocolate mousse cake, you no longer have to wait for a celebration or a party to have it for dessert! This chocolate mousse cold brew is made with the following:
