Every season and every holiday seems to have its own collection of secret menu items at Starbucks, and Christmas is absolutely no exception. 

Delish shared this recipe (via Totally The Bomb) for the Santa Claus Frappuccino and everything you need to know about ordering one for yourself. 

These are the steps: 

  1. Ask for a vanilla bean creme Frappuccino. 
  2. Ask for strawberry puree layered on the bottom, then vanilla bean creme frappe, then another layer of the strawberry puree in the middle, and then finish it off with the rest of the frappe. 
  3. Have your barista top it off with whipped cream and red Christmas sprinkles. 

And that's it! 

Remember, secret menu items aren't actually on the Starbucks menu. They are customizations of other Starbucks drinks, along with fun names that your barista may or may not already know. Follow those steps when ordering the Santa Claus Frappuccino, and as long as they have all the ingredients, you'll be good to go. 

What's your favorite Starbucks secret menu item? I've never actually gotten brave enough to order one before!
