Thanks to our source and the original makers of this secret menu drink, we knew just what to order… and yes, it’s as good as it sounds!

Here’s what’s in the Starbucks secret menu drink:

  • Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher
  • Raspberry Syrup
  • Passion Tea
  • Ice

Ready to order? Here’s what you need to say to your Starbucks barista:

“Can I get a Venti Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher with no inclusions but with 1 pump of raspberry syrup? I would like the lemonade + syrup shaken together first, then poured into the cup with ice, and then topped with Passion tea. Thank you!”

Keep in mind that this Firecracker drink isn’t entirely mobile order friendly since you can’t ask for the lemonade to be mixed separately.

However, if you still want to order it via mobile, you can still add the raspberry syrup, the passion tea, and decline the inclusions. *Note that your drink likely won’t be ombré if ordered this way.  

On another note, did you know that you can score this Starbucks Firecracker drink for FREE if you’re new to the Starbucks Rewards Program?!

“It’s a nice summer drink, and if you like fruity and refreshing flavors, you’ll especially love this drink hack. It’s packed with fresh-tasting ingredients that make this drink a little tangy and sweet all at the same time. Not to mention that it also gave me a little pep in my step! 🙌 I really enjoyed this beverage, and will definitely be ordering it again.”

    Looks good! How much is it? I’m not a coffee drinker so I never go to Starbucks. I may have to now.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! The big one Stetson purchased was around $6.59.

  2. Kay

    My favorite drink is similar. I do the strawberry acai lemonade, no inclusions, one pump of classic, light ice, topped with passion tea.

    • Susan

      What are inclusions?

      • Dkp91576

        If you go to the app and try to order the first Refresher, it offers a scoop of Dragonfruit as an inclusion. You have to skip that to make this.

    Thanks for the script I saw this drink on Facebook and was like there is no way I’m going to be one of those customers and order such a complicated drink your script narrows it down and makes sound less “extra”

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Monique! Glad it is helpful!

  4. A C

    Does anybody know how much sugar is in this? It looks delicious!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’m not sure how much is in the raspberry syrup adds, but the drink in a Venti has 44 grams of sugar alone.

    Fun! Great way to use star rewards!

    Unfortunately with all the supply shortages Starbucks is facing, Raspberry will be temporarily discontinued. Some stores might still have some but once their supply is gone it won’t be back for a couple months.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Thanks so much for the warning!

    • Lisa P.

      Yep. Every store I’ve tried in Las Vegas has been out of Raspberry for at least a month now.

  7. heather_03

    One of the stores around us have a any refreshers.. it’s been a lonely summer 😭

    • Amanda7141

      Yup, our Starbucks is out of everything. They cant get lemonade in or peach. They said a lot of things are just out of stock. ☹️

  8. Laurie M Villotta

    My daughter just started working at Starbucks. Every day she works she can bring home unlimited drinks any size and 1 pastry. U add that up and if she is working 4 days a weeks that would be 3 large drinks and a pastry $25/day. That is almost $400 dollars a month in perks.

      How cool!!!

  9. Kathleen Barker

    I don’t mean to be a Debbie Downer, but I could never ask a Starbucks worker for all these complicated concoctions! Just my 2 cents.

    • Dani

      That’s their job lol. It’s not complicated at all

    • Frugal Momma

      My son works at Starbucks and they hate getting these tik tok drinks, especially because they are typically out of stuff due to shortages and understaffed as well. Then people pitch fits if the drink isn’t what the expected. So thank you for being considerate.

  10. Suzanne

    This looks like the one you talked about last summer, I think its exactly the same recipe, but I can’t remember the name. But I remember ordering it all the time.

  11. Amy

    I need a recipe for a fun ombré drink that is also easy 😂

  12. Kim

    Can this drink be ordered sugar free?? Some syrups are sugar free.
