Independence Day is just around the corner! Even if your celebrations look a little different this year, there are still so many ways to celebrate! Such as indulging in this new secret Firecracker Starbucks drink created by the team at Totally The Bomb!

Let’s start off by saying the drink’s ombre effect makes this beverage nice to look at. However, you’ll be pleased to know it’s not only pretty but is full of delicious tropical flavor too. Better yet, it also contains caffeine! Not to mention, it is the perfect drink to accompany your patriotic decorations and outfits.

But here’s the catch, since it’s a secret Starbucks drink, it’s not a part of the official menu per se. This also means if you order a Firecracker drink the barista won’t know what you’re talking about. The solution? Show up to Starbucks with the recipe in hand and kindly ask your barista to make you a custom drink. OR, you can conveniently order your custom drink on Starbuck’s mobile app!

According to the recipe, you’ll want to start by ordering a Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade Refresher but you’ll need to ask for no inclusions which are the dragonfruit pieces. Next, you’ll want to ask for a pump of Raspberry Syrup followed by a little Passion Tea on top over ice. Asking for your drink to be poured over ice is essential to achieve the ombre effect so make sure you don’t skip this step. That said, it’ll still taste delicious if you do forget!
