I love coffee. Who doesn’t? It’s a drink that helps us get through our day/morning routine, or just feel more awake. But when it comes to my caffeine intake, I can get bored of the same routine. Either I’m making coffee at home with my Nespresso machine or ordering the same Starbucks drink every time (iced caramel macchiato with almond milk). So I decided to put together a list of cold brew orders to switch things up.
These are all great options for anyone who wants something different than what they usually order at Starbucks. For me, this type of drink hits the spot if you want something sweet but not too sweet–it has just enough sweetness that goes well with any kind of breakfast food you might have!
It’s also perfect as the weather gets warmer. Who doesn’t love a refreshing cold brew on a hot spring/summer day? It’s the perfect way to beat the heat with flavor!
Here are some of my favorite Starbucks cold brew orders that will satisfy your taste buds and cool you down in this heat:
Cookies and Cream Cold Brew
This drink may be too sweet for some, but that’s the beauty of the cold brew. It has a smoother taste than traditional coffee and can be customized to your sweetness level. If you are a big fan of Oreos and the cookies and cream flavor, this is the drink for you.
You can adjust the pumps of the syrups if you want the drink to be less sweet, but the general recipe for a venti is:
- Cold brew with vanilla sweet cream cold foam
- 2 pumps vanilla syrup
- 4 pumps of white mocha syrup
- 2 pumps of mocha syrup
- cookie crumbles on top of the sweet cream foam
So if you’re looking for something sweet and different at Starbucks, give this new drink a try today!

Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew Copycat Recipe
Unfortunately, the pumpkin cream cold brew at Starbucks is a seasonal drink. So you can’t just order it whenever you want. BUT you can order something similar to give you that fall/autumn flavor.
For a grande drink the ingredients are:
- Cold brew with vanilla sweet cream cold foam
- 2 pumps vanilla syrup
- 2 pumps of toffee nut syrup
- cinnamon powder blended in the cold foam
This can be a bit bitter, so feel free to add more pumps of syrup to adjust to your preferred sweetness level.

Irish Cream Cold Brew
This is my absolute favorite cold brew drink that I’ve tried at Starbucks. It’s a seasonal drink that usually becomes available around the wintertime (it became available in December 2020). Depending on your Starbucks they may still have the syrup available to make this during other seasons. If you really want to try it, I would ask the baristas if they can make it.
This drink isn’t a secret menu or custom cold brew, so you don’t need to know exactly what’s in it. However, if you must know, the grande drink comes with 4 pumps of Irish syrup and sweet cream foam.
The Irish Cream flavor provides that much-needed caffeinated boost to get you going through your day!

Snickerdoodle Cold Brew
Who isn’t a fan of snickerdoodle cookies? Why not combine your love of coffee and cookies into one drink with this snickerdoodle cold brew? This one doesn’t have any cold foam, but you can always ask for it if needed. This drink includes:
- Grande cold brew
- 1 pump white mocha syrup
- 2 pumps cinnamon dolce syrup
- Light cream
This drink can even be super low in calories if you opt for sugar-free syrup! You don’t have to break your diet or compromise your calorie count for the day by having this drink.

Salted Caramel White Mocha Cold Brew
I absolutely love caramel, which is why my go-to drink is an iced caramel macchiato. But, on days where I want the caramel flavor but something different this is always a good choice. It’s another example of the perfect balance between the sweet and buttery taste of caramel with bitter coffee. One sip and you’ll be hooked!
This drink will give you a boost without making you crash later or feel too full for hours – which makes this perfect to take along with you while running errands or going about your day-to-day life!
- Venti cold brew
- 4 pumps of white chocolate mocha syrup
- Salted sweet cream foam
- Drizzle of caramel sauce

What can you add to a Starbucks cold brew?
You can always add a few pumps of syrup to a cold brew order! You can choose from:
- Brown Sugar Syrup
- Caramel Syrup
- Cinnamon Dolce Syrup
- Funnel Cake Syrup
- Hazelnut Syrup
- Peppermint Syrup
- Pineapple Ginger Syrup
- Raspberry Syrup
- Toffee Nut Syrup
- Vanilla Syrup
- Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup
Not every Starbucks store will have all of these syrups at once, so it’s best to ask if it’s available before trying to place an order.
You can also ask for a little sprinkle of cinnamon on top of your cold brew. I highly recommend asking for this on top of an iced chai tea latte with cold foam!
