Ordering a drink from Starbucks can seem like a daunting task for many and these off-the-menu Starbucks drinks might make it feel even nore discouraging. Yet if people could ask the baristas to whip up their signature beverage like a bartender, perhaps the experience would be less stressful for newbies.

FoodBeast challenged a handful of baristas from local Starbucks stores in Santa Ana, California, to create off-the-menu Starbucks drinks in order to test their creativity. The results were interesting. One of the off-the-menu Starbucks drinks is called LA Smog, which is based off of a Green Tea Frappuccino with added mocha syrup and java chips. On the more experimental end is the Blueberry Breakfast Shake, which boasts a full blended blueberry muffin. Stats for Off-the-Menu Starbucks Drinks Trending: Older & Warm
