This drink, which Totally the Bomb says will provide the “traditionalistic tastes” of a fruit-topped cheesecake, starts out with a white mocha Frappuccino. If you are ordering a grande (in case it has been a while since your last Starbucks visit, this is NOT the Italian word for “medium,” but it’s nevertheless Starbucks’ medium-sized drink), you’ll get one pump of raspberry and one pump of hazelnut syrup. Sounds simple enough, and delicious just as it is.
If you want to fancy it all up in best secret menu tradition, though, you’ll also need to ask for caramel crunch topping on the bottom of the cup and again on the top, plus you’ll want some strawberry puree on top of your whipped cream, which you’d think might detract from the overall raspberry-ness of the drink, but perhaps you could think of it as a mixed berry cheesecake.
One caveat to anyone thinking of ordering this, though. On the Instagram post, while everyone who’d tried it did say it was delicious, one warned: “After all the add-ons it becomes a $7 coffee drink,” So yes, it would seem that all those customizations aren’t free, at least when you go off-menu like that.
