Lo and behold: the holiday season has arrived on campus – or at least in Starbucks. Go in for your morning coffee and you might as well have walked into a holiday vortex.

Now what if I told you that in addition to your standbys, there is a whole new menu of seasonal delight waiting to be explored? To throw a little variety into this holiday season, indulge in some of these holiday treats (both hot and cold) that aren’t on the menu, consolidated into one handy list for you.

Note: not all baristas know everything on the secret menu, so bring the recipe just in case. Then enjoy the holiday merriment that ensues!

Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino
Not just for after Thanksgiving dinner! Start with a crème-base pumpkin spice Frappuccino, then add:

-Cinnamon dolce syrup (1 pump for tall, 2 for grande, 3 for venti)

-Cinnamon dolce sprinkles

-Whipped cream, blended in

-Top with more whipped cream and cinnamon dolce sprinkles. No Cool Whip necessary.

Candy Cane Lane Frappuccino

Who says candy canes are just for hanging on Christmas trees? Enjoy this easy-to-order peppermint treat anytime.

Start with a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, then add:
