Starbucks Christmas Cookie Frappuccino

It’s that time of year – Starbucks has released their holiday menu and people are swapping their Pumpkin Spice Lattes for Peppermint Mochas and Caramel Brulee beverages. And while I love a classic Christmas drink as much as the next person, sometimes I just want something new – something that hasn’t been recycled on the menu each year. Fortunately, other Starbucks fans feel the same way and have come up with a fancy new frappuccino that’ll make you forget all about eggnog and hot cocoa. The Christmas Cookie Frappuccino is a part of Starbucks secret menu, and it’s been in existence for years. But don’t worry if you’ve never heard of it – it’s making its rounds again this year, so you can test it out for yourself.

But what exactly goes into this yummy treat? You’re about to find out.

How to order the Christmas Cookie Frappuccino?

You can customize any drink at Starbucks with virtually any flavor of syrup, sauce, milk, sweetener, and toppings, so ordering the Christmas Cookie Frappuccino should be a breeze. You can try to ask for it by name, but since it’s not on the official menu, I’d recommend just listing out the ingredients for the barista. Better yet, use the app for a mobile order so you don’t have to stumble over this long-ish order. To start off, order a Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino as your base, and then add the following ingredients:

  • Peppermint Syrup
    • 1 pump tall
    • 1.5 pumps grande
    • 2 pumps venti
  • Toffee Nut Syrup
    • 1 pump tall
    • 1.5 pumps grande
    • 2 pumps venti
  • Toppings (optional)
    • Whipped Cream
    • Caramel drizzle
    • Holiday Sugar Sprinkles

How much does it cost?

Frappuccinos are one of the pricier beverages at Starbucks, depending on what you order. But even though the Christmas Cookie Frapp is a specialty secret menu item, it won’t cost must more than a regular one. The price is determined by the add-ons, so if you order the drink how we have it listed above, it’ll look something like this:

  • Tall – $5.99
  • Grande – $6.53
  • Venti – $6.86
