Why so serious when you can now head to Starbucks and get your hands on a Joker Frappuccino or two. Seriously, there are two different recipes to choose from the create this villainous drink.
When it comes to the Starbucks secret menu, there are a lot of creations in the world. But now it looks like there are even a few Joker Frappuccinos. And when we say a few, we really mean it, as it seems that there are not one, but two variations of this Frapp on the secret menu, and some locations have even decided to put their own spin on this drink.
If you are a fan of creating or drinking unique concoctions at Starbucks, then you probably already know that you can’t just walk into your local coffee shop and ask for a Joker Frappuccino (they will look at you like you’ve gone mad). But if you know the recipe, you can totally make it happen.
Of course, you should probably decide which recipe you prefer before heading in, as there are at least two different ways you can create this particular secret menu item. (And we find this fitting as technically the Joker was like two different men.)
Up first, we have one that seems simple enough, but it does require a bit or artistry from your barista (and patience). According to Delish, the first Joker Frappuccino requires you to order a Matcha Green Tea Creme Frappuccino. However, you will want to ask your barista to add strawberry syrup to the side of the cup (ask for it to be done to resemble a smile). Once they pour the Frappuccino into the cup, they will top it with whipped cream, which you can either ask to have matcha whipped into, or simply have them sprinkle some match powder on top and then finish it off with a chocolate syrup drizzle.
Now, while that Frappuccino is not too complicated, it might still annoy your barista a bit. And for the second Frappuccino recipe, it’s a bit more freeform, but still requires a bit of patience from your barista.
The second take on the Joker Frappuccino uses a Vanilla Bean Creme Frappuccino. Once again strawberry syrup and chocolate syrup are incorporated into the mix (although this seems to be just all over the cup to add the colors to the mix without actually mixing up the Frappuccino with those two syrups). This Frappuccino is again topped with whipped cream and then matcha powder is sprinkled over the top.
Clearly the big thing about ordering a Joker Frappuccino at Starbucks is making sure your drink features green, red, and white together. And this makes perfect sense as they are the colors we associate with the Clown Prince of Crime.
What do you think of these two Joker Frappuccino recipes? Are you going to give either of these Frappuccinos a try? Tell us what you think in the comments.
