You Can Now Order a Samoa Frappuccino at Starbucks

The chain's new spring drink gave us a great idea for a menu hack.

Spring is here! The weather is (finally) warming up, and Starbucks has introduced a brand new cold brew drink to their menu, which means that winter is officially over. Inspired by a coconut candy from the Dominican Republic called jalao, the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew will give you serious spring break vibes, even if you can't jet off to the Caribbean anytime soon.

Made with Nariño 70 Cold Brew and a new toasted coconut syrup, the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew is finished with a float of coconut milk for a pretty marbling effect and a hint of creaminess.

While the new Toasted Coconut Cold Brew sounds delicious, that's not even the best part of this news: The introduction of toasted coconut syrup means you can now hack the menu to create all-new secret menu drinks, like a Samoa Frappuccino or a magic seven-layer bar Frapp.

Yes, you read that right. We think we figured out how to hack two of the best cookies of all time into Frappuccino form. Of course, these won't appear on the menu (though we can make an impassioned plea for their arrival, someday), so try asking your barista for the following:

Seven-Layer Bar: One Java Chip Frappuccino with two pumps toasted coconut syrup, one pump vanilla, one pump hazelnut, and a caramel drizzle

Samoa Frappuccino: One mocha Frappuccino with a pump of caramel and a pump of toasted coconut (or two of each, if you're going for a venti), drizzled with mocha and caramel sauce
