Since 1992, Dutch Bros has been serving up delicious coffee and now has over 300 locations across the West Coast and Central United States. Since they first opened their doors in 1992, they’ve developed a loyal, cult-like following.
The great thing about the Dutch Bros coffee franchise is that the customer service isn’t straight-laced and boring; instead, it’s wacky and fun. On top of that, the coffee they serve is absolutely delicious.
Whether you love a good old-fashioned cup of joe, or you are more adventurous and like your lattes and cappuccinos, Dutch Bros has a cup of coffee for you. However, those are just the drinks on their regular menu, the stuff they serve to everyone daily. There’s also a hidden Dutch Bros secret menu that you can order from whenever the mood strikes you.
The employees at the different locations know how to make these secret drinks, so you won’t feel foolish ordering something that isn’t on the regular menu. If you’ve never heard of the Dutch Bros secret menu, then we’ll list a few of their latest delicious concoctions, some hot and some cold, in this article. Once you reach the end, all you’ll have to do is head to your nearest Dutch Bros and order the one that suits your fancy the most.
Top 19 Dutch Bros Secret Menu Drinks
1. Cotton Candy Frost
Who doesn’t love the taste of cotton candy? For most of us, it brings us back to childhood and chilly nights at the local fair with a cone of cotton candy in our hands as we joyfully ran from one attraction to another.
Whether you loved cotton candy as a child or not, if you have a sweet tooth, then the Cotton Candy Frost is the drink for you. This drink goes above and beyond by combining blue raspberry flavors with white chocolate to make the perfect shake.
2. Dirty Caterpillar
For this yummy drink, think caramel apples at Halloween combined with the delicious smoothies of a scorching hot summer at the beach. What you’ll end up with is a Dirty Caterpillar. This smoothie is a mix of green apple and caramel, with the result being a thick smoothie you’ll love. Don’t forget to ask the barista to squirt a little caramel over the top to heighten that caramel flavor.
3. Snickerdoodle Breve
Who doesn’t remember the smell of snickerdoodle cookies coming out of their grandmother’s kitchen on a cold winter morning? If you do and loved it, then you have to try the Snickerdoodle Breve. It’s a cappuccino made with half and half, instead of whole milk, and then blended with chocolate macadamia nut syrup, cinnamon syrup, and a white chocolate sauce. The result is a drink that you’re going to order off the secret menu again and again.
4. Golden Eagle Breve
If you love Dutch Bros’ caramel macchiato, you’ll adore the Golden Eagle Breve for its creamy texture with added vanilla and caramel. Not only does it taste divine, but the caramel-drizzled cup walls made by your favorite Dutch Bros barista also add a look of decadence that can’t be defined. This drink is meant to be hot, but it’s also great on ice or blended, so try it in different ways to see which you love most.
5. The Grasshopper Mocha
Remember the thin mints that the Girl Scouts sell? Well, that’s what the Grasshopper Mocha reminds us of. It’s a blend of mint and chocolate that many people will love and ask for again.
6. White Coffee Smores Breve
Brown sugar cinnamon with white and dark chocolate are the stars of the White Coffee Smores Breve. Add in a bit of chocolate macadamia, and this coffee drink is one for the ages.
7. Bob Marley (Bob)
As you’ve probably guessed, Bob Marley, also known as the Bob, is a Jamaican-inspired drink. The baristas achieve this delicious drink by mixing coconut with mocha to make a Cocomo. Once they make your drink have them blend in a little or even a lot of bananas, and you have the perfect smoothie to take to the beach with you on a hot day.
8. Molten Lava Mocha
When we think of molten lava, the picture that comes to mind is those fabulous little cakes and the warm, oozing chocolate that comes out of them when they are cut. Who wouldn’t love that? The Molten Lava Mocha is a sweet mix of cinnamon and mocha blended perfectly by a Dutch Bros barista.
9. Killer Cold Brew
This concoction is one of the most popular at Dutch Bros and can be found on the regular menu; however, it’s so popular that it’s worth mentioning here. It’s a drink worthy of a super-hot summer day and is made with Irish cream. Have the barista add an extra shot of Irish cream for a super yummy treat.
10. French Toast Breve
This drink conjures up images of cozy mornings, sitting around the kitchen table with family while you eat French toast dripping with syrup and topped with whipped cream. The French Toast Breve is full of cinnamon, white chocolate, and brown sugar. What more could you want in a coffee drink?
11. Toasted Mellow Mocha
Next on our list is the Toasted Mellow Mocha. Start your morning off in a great way with a drink that’s brimming with maximum marshmallow sweetness, chocolate milk, chocolate macadamia nut syrup, and just a hint of vanilla. You’ll be ready to take on the world after a sip of this delightful concoction.
12. Sunset Burst Italian Soda
This Dutch Bros secret menu selection is excellent for hot, sunny days (or when you wish the weather were hot and sunny). It’s a combo of passionfruit juice and coconut topped with a tasty drizzle of raspberry that reminds you of a trip to a tropical paradise. The Sunset Burst Italian Soda is perfect for a day at the beach.
13. Caramel Cinnamon Roll
Few treats are more delightful and decadent than a caramel cinnamon roll for breakfast. If there aren’t any cinnamon rolls available, a Caramel Cinnamon Roll off the Dutch Bros’ secret menu will do the trick nicely. With a blend of cinnamon, caramel, and white chocolate, your tastebuds might not know the difference! Even better, you can turn almost any drink into a Caramel Cinnamon Roll, including a latte, mocha, breve, chai, or even a freeze.
Although the name might confuse some customers, the Pocahontas is a popular secret beverage. Some fans say the caramel in the drink represents Pocahontas, while the white chocolate represents John Smith. There’s dark chocolate, too, which is why this secret drink is also referred to as the “Trifecta.” Whatever you choose to call it, this is one Dutch Bros libation that’s sure to please your palate.
15. Pumpkin Pie Breve
Yes, this secret menu concoction from Dutch Bros is one you’ll see mostly in fall, thanks to the pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. The whipped cream (a pumpkin pie staple during the holiday) is the perfect touch on top, turning this secret drink into something that closely resembles a warm slice of everyone’s favorite holiday dessert. Whether it’s fall or not, the Pumpkin Pie Breve from Dutch Bros is a delight.
16. Unicorn Blood
Take a Rebel energy drink and add white chocolate sauce, almond syrup, and strawberry syrup; what do you get? You get the Unicorn Blood, of course! Just saying the word “unicorn” is enough to make many folks happy, but when the taste of this secret Dutch Bros drink hits your lips, you’ll be ready to fly (figuratively speaking, of course)! This is an excellent drink for a hot, sunny day when you have nothing to do but daydream. Of course, as an energy drink, it’s also a great way to start your busy day.
17. The Cure
This unusually named Dutch Bros drink combines chocolate milk, cinnamon, and a single espresso shot for a brain and energy boost. What does it cure? We have no idea, but it sure is tasty! The combination of creaminess and chocolate gets you off to a comforting start, and after a few minutes, the caffeine steps in to get you going and focused. Whatever ails your morning, the Cure from the secret menu will heal it deliciously.
18. Kings of Leon
If you’re looking for a drink with an iconic name and superb taste, the Kings of Leon on Dutch Bros’ secret menu is a game-changer! With a combo of kiwi, lime, and orange, it gives you a refreshing kick of fruity, slightly acidic fun and is one of the most well-liked Refresher secret recipes. Get a drizzle of Wild Berry on top for an extra splash of fruit flavor!
19. Kicker Cold Brew
If you’re a Dutch Bros fanatic, you’ve probably had their infamous nitro cold brew. This twist on that classic, the Kicker Cold Brew, adds a shot of Irish cream to the mix and a shot of regular cream. It’s yummy, creamy, and looks impressive when served. Plus, the Kicker Cold Brew gives you energy and a focus boost to start your day. How can you go wrong?
Tips for Ordering From the Dutch Bros Secret Menu
Ordering from the “secret menu” at Dutch Bros is a breeze as long as you know what to ask for.
The Americano is one of the plainest drinks on the menu, making it great as a base for secret drinks. An Americano contains two ingredients: espresso shots and water. In the small, there’s one shot, the medium has two shots, and the large gets the most with three or four espresso shots.
A Breve is very similar to a latte, but instead of steamed milk, it uses half & half that’s been steamed. If you want a secret drink with a creamy texture and caffeine kick, order a Breve.
The most significant difference between a Freeze and another coffee drink is that the Freeze is served ice cold. It’s the best way to cool off but still get your much-needed caffeine kick. The Freeze is also a base for many iced secret menu drinks.
If you like milkshakes, you’ll love the Frost, which is creamy, thick, and one of the most satisfying comfort foods. The Frost doesn’t have caffeine but comes in many decadent flavors, all of which can be blended to make several delicious secret menu drinks (some of which can also be made vegan).
The Rebel is Dutch Bros’ equivalent of an energy drink and, as such, is made with several fruit flavors. You can get a Rebel cold or blended, and it makes a fantastic base for many of the best secret menu Dutch Bros drinks.
