There a few things that top every Harry Potter fan’s bucket list. Sadly, attending wizarding school or flying on broomsticks isn’t possible for mere muggles (yet). But thanks to the Starbucks “secret” menu, we can all get a little taste of the Wizarding World in real life.
That’s right—if you’re in the know, you can order a Hot Butterbeer Latte at your local Starbucks! Here’s what you do: Order a whole milk steamer and then add toffee nut, caramel and cinnamon dolce syrups. The drink can be made with or without espresso. Garnish with whipped cream and salted caramel pieces or the caramel brûlée topping—and voila!—you’ll be transported to Hogwarts as you sip on your warm, sweet butterbeer.
That sounds delicious whether or not you’re a Harry Potter fanatic! Here’s a snap of the yummy-looking drink from Instagram user dianawrote:

Similarly, the Butterbeer Frappuccino is a fun frozen spin on the magical drink. Ask for a Creme Frappuccino with whole milk. Then, add in caramel and toffee nut syrups. Finally, top it off with whipped cream and a caramel drizzle.

Pumpkin Juice may not have quite the cache of butterbeer, but it’s also available on the secret menu. Order an iced apple juice with pumpkin spice sauce. Ask the barista to pour apple juice to the top line and add one-and-a-half pumps of sauce for a tall, two pumps for a grande and three pumps for a venti before filling with ice.
So there you have it—a range of Harry Potter-themed drinks for all Starbucks devotees. Sip on these sweet treats and before you know it you’ll feel like you’re a wand-carrying member of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
