The summer season is coming up – the season we all like to go to music festivals, carnivals and eat cotton candy. But what if you could eat cotton candy on the go, in drinkable form? Thanks to the Starbucks secret menu, this is now possible. The Cotton Candy Frap is a custom drink made with delightfully sweet ingredients and pumps of pure sugar.

  • Vanilla bean Frappuccino
  • Raspberry syrup (1 pump tall, 1.5 pumps grande, 2 pumps venti)

That’s it! This is as simple as sugar, a hot drum and some food coloring. Of course, you can experiment with other things inside, but this cotton candy drink is extremely simple and perfect the way it is.

How to order:

If you’re a new customer at Starbucks and you’re ready to try out your first drink as the cotton candy Frappuccino, you may not want to barge in there asking directly for the name. There is a secret menu for a reason: it’s to experiment with pumps and ingredients from their main menu. With this drink, you want to order a custom drink with the vanilla bean frappe as your base. Then you want to ask for the according pumps of raspberry syrup (depending on the size). There you have it!

You can also ask for certain things to be blended in with it to give it more texture. Items that can be blended in: cake pops, small bits of pastry, etc.
