I love to go "off the menu" at Starbucks and try the latest Secret Menu drinks. And the Secret Menu is here with a (basically) patriotic drink, in the nick of time, to celebrate the Fourth of July. Mashed has the recipe for the new Secret Menu Starbucks refresher called "Firecracker."

The recipe for this Secret Menu drink is simple, and fruity, too! The Mashed website recommends ordering a venti Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher (drink only, no fruit added), raspberry syrup, passion tea, and ice.

Starbucks' Secret Menu "Firecracker" Drink


  • Venti Mango Dragon Fruit Refresher (drink only, no fruit added)
  • Raspberry Syrup
  • Passion Tea
  • Ice


  • The ingredients are simple, but the execution of making the perfect "Firecracker" is a little involved. That's because, when prepared properly, the drink will have a pink-to-white ombre effect. Get the preparation directions and other details from Mashed.com.


Now, since the drink is on the Secret Menu, Mashed's website does say baristas do not actually know most of these orders by name. So, it's important to give the directions, as listed, for the drink to look and taste as described. I was today years old when I found this out. I usually just read my order to the barista, but I didn't realize they don't know the drinks by name. So, make sure you either order on the app, or have the recipe ready-to-read when you order in-person.

Do you have a favorite summer drink available only on the Starbucks' Secret Menu?
