The Starbucks secret menu is a cult favorite of many consumers loyal to the brand, that offers exclusive drink recipes that aren't on the normal menu -- if eaters know what to ask for. The retailer recently added an all-new beverage to the exclusive menu, entitled the Undertow that features a mix of cool and hot textures.

The Undertow is a blend of both warm and cold textures with a shot of pipping hot espresso that is suspended over a cold glass of milk. The shot can be mixed into the milk to create a mild mixed beverage or consumed one after the other for contrasting taste and flavor. The drink is small in size and meant to be taken more as a shot, than a slow sipped hot beverage.
