If there’s anyone feeling the love this Valentine’s Day, it’s definitely Starbucks. They couldn’t wait to hop aboard the love boat, rolling out adorable Valentine’s Day mugs and tumblers as early as the first week of January. The Starbucks secret menu has been in the spirit this year, too, with decadent creations like the chocolate-drizzled Strawberry Frappuccino that had our hearts fluttering.
The big day is almost here, and if your SO is a sucker for Starbucks, here’s what they need for Valentine’s Day: a Strawberry Cold Brew!
What’s in the Strawberry Cold Brew?
The new Strawberry Cold Brew combines the caffeine punch of iced coffee with the subtly sweet flavors of white mocha and raspberry. All you have to do is order a Cold Brew with Sweet Cream Cold Foam and mix in your favorite flavors, typically mocha, or white mocha and raspberry (two pumps each for a Venti). To get the romantic pink foam, have the barista add a splash of Strawberry Puree, and voila! It’s the creamy delight even Cupid would envy.
The recipe first hit Instagram via faithful foodie and Starbucks lover @ThatKnoxvilleGirl. Fans everywhere instantly fell in love, and we can’t blame them! We’re falling a little head over heels, ourselves.

#ThatKnoxvilleGirlDrinks @starbucks — what I like to call a — Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day Drink! 💕 IT WAS DELISH!! 💗🍓 It’s a Venti Cold Brew with White Mocha, Raspberry, + Strawberry Purée Cold Foam 😍 Here’s how I ordered: _ Venti cold brew 💕 2 pumps raspberry 2 pumps white mocha Cold foam made with strawberry purée Topped with chocolate curls (my location was out so I subbed in mocha drizzle) _ I’d add an extra pump of raspberry + white mocha if you like it extra sweet. An iced Venti drink normally has 6 pumps of something if that helps gage your sweetness level. 🍓💓❤️ _ . . . . #thatknoxvillegirl #knoxville #tennessee #starbucks #starbucksdrinks #starbuckscoldbrew #cameradrinksfirst #coffeeislife #coffeecoffeecoffee #coldfoam #foodielife #foodielife #knoxfoodie #coffeeloversclub #coffeeloversunite
Keep in mind Starbucks baristas aren’t trained on the secret menu. To request a Strawberry Cold Brew, make sure you have the recipe available at the register. Here’s what Starbucks baristas really think of your secret menu order.
Feel the Love at Starbucks…All Year Round
The best part about the Strawberry Cold Brew is that it’s not a temporary addition. The ingredients included in this secret menu sipper are available every day at Starbucks. Cold Brew is steeped daily, and white mocha and raspberry are year-round syrups that never go out of style.
What does this beverage cost? Well, a Venti Salted Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew costs around $4.75. That said, the Strawberry Cold Brew includes flavor additions, as well as Strawberry Puree in the foam, so you may be looking at a steep price for this secret menu drink. Still, we’re happy to give it a try if it means getting a taste of Valentine’s Day.
