How to Order Pumpkin Juice at Starbucks

Calling All Harry Potter Fans! You Can Get Pumpkin Juice at Starbucks Thanks to This Hack

A post shared by Jason Sasaki (@sasakitime) on

Wizard wannabes, you can finally satisfy your ever-present hankerings for pumpkin juice without having to fly your Nimbus 2000 all the way to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. All you have to do is head to your nearest Starbucks because the bright-orange beverage is actually part of the coffeehouse's secret menu — yes, really!

If you ask the barista for straight-up "pumpkin juice," they may look at you like you have three heads à la Fluffy, Hagrid's former three-headed dog from the Harry Potter series. Instead, here's how to hack the drink while keeping your true wizardry under wraps. Simply order an apple juice filled to the top line of the cup. Then ask them to add pumpkin spice sauce, depending on the size you order (1.5 pumps for a tall, two pumps for a grande, and three for a venti), and fill the rest of the cup with ice. If you really want to kick the flavor up a notch, ask for a sprinkling of the pumpkin-spice topping as well. We suggest giving the concoction a hearty stir to thoroughly mix the flavor components before taking your first nostalgia-filled sip.

Of course, the convenience of having a Starbucks barista make your drinks is always nice, but we're also in favor of making our own versions at home as well. If you're more of the DIY type, you can grab your own cauldron, roll up the sleeves of your robes, and make some pumpkin juice at home with our original recipe. Accio, bendy straws!
