Starbucks' Secret Menu... What's a "Black Eye"?

From The Raw Feed

Starbucks has a menu, which we're all familiar with. But it also has a "secret menu" -- drinks you can order that have never been on the menu. Here are the drinks I'm aware of from Starbucks' secret menu:

Short anything. (The advertised sizes are "Tall," "Grande" and "Venti." But anything can be ordered in a less expensive and smaller "Short" size as well. They have official-but-secret prices for all short drinks and everything.)

Short cappuccino. (A "Short" cappuccino is closer to the traditional cappuccino drink as it existed before Starbucks invented the practice of adding massive quantities of milk.)

Red Eye. (Drip coffee with a shot of espresso.)

Black Eye. (Drip coffee with two shots of espresso.)

Ghetto Latte. (Don't say "Ghetto Latte" when you order. Just order an Iced Americano, with no water and half ice, then go to the condiments bar and add a lot of half-and-half. This exact same drink is sold by Starbucks as a Breve Latte, which costs much more.)

Ghetto Chai Latte. (Don't say "Getto Chai Latte." Order a Chai Tea Misto with two tea bags, half cinnamon and half vanilla syrup and extra foam. Cheaper than a real Chai Latte.)

Cafe au Lait. (Order the Misto without foam for an old French favorite.)

French pressed coffee. (You can choose any coffee they sell by the bag served in a French press!)

Anything. It's Starbucks' official policy to make you anything you want from ingredients they have. So if you want them to put a shot of espresso, a large tea and White Chocolate Mocha into a blender, served with whipped cream and cherry syrup on top, then have to do it. They'll charge you for everything, though.
