Starbucks (obviously) gets a lot of things right when it comes to rich, flavorful, and sometimes exotic coffee options – but if there’s one thing that they really hit right out of the park, better than any other “quick stop” coffee place, it has to be there hazelnut coffee drinks.


Almost criminally indulgent, luxurious, and always brimming with legitimate hazelnut flavors (not some cheap chemical knockoff) Starbucks hazelnut drinks are always level.


At the same time, though, a lot of the very best Starbucks hazelnut coffee drinks (drinks available at pre-much every Starbucks under the sun) are hidden away on the legendary Starbucks secret menu.


Below we breakdown the 10 best Starbucks hazelnut coffee drinks you can request by name, some of them available on the menu all the time – but others part of the secret menu we just mentioned a moment ago.


Let’s dig right in, Shelley question mark


The 10 Best Starbucks Hazelnut Coffee Drinks


Betty White Frappucino


Named after the beloved Hollywood superstar and a real icon of the entertainment world, a Betty White Frappucino is something you have to try for yourself – maybe the most perfect example of just how well Starbucks does hazelnut coffee drinks.


The Betty White is part of the “secret menu” and uses the white mocha frappucino as the base and foundation. A single pump of hazelnut coffee flavor and another pump of vanilla syrup takes this already pretty luxurious drink to a new level of decadence.


This fan favorite gets rounded off with caramel crunch topping added into the mix.


You are going to love it!


Blonde Hazelnut Latte


Perhaps the most popular of all the hazelnut coffee drinks from Starbucks, this is a Starbucks menu staple as soon as the leaves begin to change in the weather gets a little cooler (though it is available all year round).


This coffee drink starts off with perfectly (but likely) roasted soft and mild blonde espresso coffee from Starbucks. It’s not going to be quite as bold or have as much “bite” as some of the more intensely roasted coffee from Starbucks, but it’s not going to disappear into the drink at the same time.


A little bit of milk, little bit of hazelnut syrup (just add that punch of flavor but also to add some sweetness) finishes things off nicely.


Best of all, the blonde hazelnut latte from Starbucks works just as well as a hot beverage as it does as a cold beverage.


Blueberry Muffin Frappuccino


If your idea of a perfect fall morning starts off with a hazelnut coffee and a blueberry muffin why not take things to the next level and combine the two together?


The blueberry muffin frappucino from Starbucks begins its life as a large vanilla bean frappucino. To that Starbucks baristas add in either a single pump of hazelnut or a double if you’re looking to really spice things up a bit.


A handful or two of fresh blueberries are added and then the drink is blended together. It’s finished off after being topped with just a bit of fresh whipped cream, some caramel crunch topping, and a splash of whole fresh blueberries, too.


French Toast Frappuccino


Another fan favorite from the “secret Starbucks menu”, you’re going to fall head over heels in love with a French toast frappucino the very first time you give it a try.


This beverage begins with a café vanilla frappucino that has been spiced up with a bit of fresh sweet cream.


A single (or double) pump of cinnamon dolce syrup makes this a little more decadent, but that’s followed up with another pump of hazelnut syrup to really push this into French toast territory.


You always have the option of adding some cinnamon dolce powder or caramel crunch topping as well!


Golden Girls Frappuccino


While not quite as rich in hazelnut flavor as the Betty White frappucino, the Golden Girls frappucino is nothing to turn your nose up at if you are a hazelnut coffee fan.


This secret menu request begins as a white mocha frappucino, something that Starbucks does better than absolutely anyone else.


A double pump of hazelnut syrup gets mixed in, followed by a single pump of vanilla syrup, and then a little bit of caramel crunch topping is added to the coffee drink – with maybe a bit of whip cream if you’d like – rounding out this Golden Girls special.


Hazelnut Bianco Latte


Lattes really helped to put Starbucks on the map and the baristas that work here are well-trained to produce smooth, flavorful, and undeniably rich lattes better – and faster – than almost anybody else in the coffee business today.


A hazelnut bianco latte starts off as a traditional Starbucks latte (with hazelnut coffee as the base, of course) with a little bit of milk and espresso thrown into the mixture.


Lots of folks like to use cinnamon dolce syrups, vanilla syrups, caramel crunch toppings, and with cream to finish this drink off. But that’s up to you and you can go wild customizing this with your order.


Hazelnut Blanco Latte


A hazelnut blanco latte is a bit different than the one we just mentioned a moment ago, this time using hazelnut praline infused milk as a centerpiece ingredient compared to the traditional milk and espresso used in Starbucks lattes.


If you are on the hunt for a really decadent, really luxurious, and really indulgent hazelnut coffee drink from Starbucks this is the one to order.


A big part of the appeal of this beverage is the use of Reserve Espresso Starbucks coffee. This isn’t something that’s going to use “everyday” Starbucks espresso, but instead a select reserve espresso for these kind of high-end beverages.


Just be warned, though, that this latte is going to pack a caffeine punch.


We are talking about a beverage that’s going to deliver at least 135 mg of caffeine per cup – enough to wake you up in the morning, but you might not want to have a second.


Hazelnut Malt Frappuccino


This is easily one of the 10 best Starbucks hazelnut coffee drinks on the list, and one that folks that are a big fan of hazelnut and vanilla combos are going to fall head over heels in love with the very first time they give it a try.


A vanilla bean frappucino acts as the base for this drink, with two hazelnut syrup pumps added into the mix. Ask for a bit of nutmeg powder as well to elevate the flavor combination.


If you want to bring a little more vanilla flavor to the mix don’t be shy about asking for vanilla bean powder to be added as well. Another scoop (or two) balances out the flavors a bit if you’re looking for something that isn’t quite as hazelnut forward.


Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato


Nutella fans practically swarm Starbucks for this menu option, a coffee that seems like it was engineered in the lap to go with Nutella.


The drink is also a huge hit with vegans, one of their best-selling 100% vegan options in fact – and a cornerstone of the fall time menu.


Two shots of espresso, hazelnut syrup, mixed in with a bit of milk or cream make this a foolishly simple and straightforward beverage to make as well.


Best of all, you can order this coffee hot or iced – it’s totally up to you, too.


Shortbread Cookie Frappuccino


Obviously heavily inspired by the best-selling Girl Scout cookies, this shortbread cookie frappucino is not your every day “cup of joe”.


No, this is a rich and luxurious coffee that fans of shortbread cookies, vanilla, and hazelnut go absolutely wild for.


A vanilla frappucino is the backbone ingredient for this drink, with two pumps of hazelnut syrup stirred in. From there, top with a bit of whipped cream and some caramel crunch topping (maybe with a bit of caramel crunch added to the bottom of the cup before the beverages made) and you’ve got something really special on your hands.


Ordering Hazelnut Drinks from the Starbucks Secret Menu


At the end of the day, ordering the 10 best Starbucks hazelnut coffee drinks really is a lot simpler and more straightforward than most people realize – even if a number of these best sellers come directly from the “secret menu”.


If you are going to be ordering from the Starbucks secret menu, though, you’ll want to be sure that you know exactly how to pull it off.


Walking up to a new barista without a ton of experience under their belt and asking for the “Betty White Frappucino” for example probably isn’t going to get you the drink you’re looking for. You’re much more likely to get a blank stare and an ask for more clarification.


It’s a good idea to look up the ingredients for the secret menu drink you want to order ahead of time, keeping them active on your phone (or scribbling yourself a note) so that you can pop into any Starbucks you’d like and ask for the drink that way.
