How to order a Starbucks Cinderella Latte — and other secret pumpkin drinks

The secret menu at Starbucks is filled with fall drinks of every flavor combination you could ask for. The Cinderella Latte isn’t a complicated order, and fans have fallen in love with the taste.

Disney-inspired foods and beverages are the stuff of our hearts’ most delightful wishes. Leave it to the most dedicated Disney fans to take something already magical — like a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks — and add even more sparkle.

The “Cinderella Latte” is an unofficial part of the Starbucks secret menu, also home to the Cotton Candy Frappuccino, Purple Drink, and the Hot Butterbeer Latte. It’s a PSL-White Chocolate Mocha hybrid, named after Cinderella’s white pumpkin carriage.

“Secret menus” are tricky, especially at Starbucks. The majority of these drinks are created by customers and given names so tempting you almost can’t resist giving them a try. In some cases, the bright colors alone are enough to convince you to abandon your beloved usual for something you’ve barely heard of.

At this point, your barista might know what you mean when you ask for a Cinderella Latte — its popularity has skyrocketed as Pumpkin Flavored Everything season comes into full swing. But just in case they haven’t heard of it — it’s technically not the official name of a drink — you just have to ask for a PSL with half of the usual pumps of pumpkin sauce replaced with white mocha.

Apparently, it’s the perfect combination of pumpkin and white chocolate in the form of a drink. We haven’t tried it yet, but that may have changed by the time you’re reading this.

The Cinderella Latte isn’t even the only “secret” pumpkin drink you can delightfully indulge in this fall. You can also order a Pumpkin Pie Frappuccino (a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino with cinnamon dulce and tons of whipped cream) and a Pumpkin Hot Chocolate (hot chocolate with at least one pump of pumpkin spice sauce).

In the mood for another fall-inspired drink you won’t find on the official menu? The Butterscotch Frappuccino is a mixture of cream, pumpkin spice, hazelnut, and caramel syrup.

Many people aren’t aware you can customize your Starbucks drinks as much as you want to. But if you do, have your order planned out (probably written out) in advance so you don’t give your barista (and anyone waiting in line behind you) a headache.
