What Happens When You Order A Drink Upside Down At Starbucks

Starbucks offers a plethora of options on its menu. However, one legitimate option you won't see on the menu is the choice to order your drink upside-down.

Upside-down means that the layers of ingredients in your drink will be inverted, as your barista will follow the steps used to make it in reverse.

For example, an upside-down caramel macchiato puts the milk at the top for a sweeter, mild start before you uncover the espresso at the bottom.

Customers order drinks upside-down to switch up the flavor profile. When baristas change the layers of ingredients, the result is a familiar but exciting version of the original.

In the case of a Caramel Macchiato, having the caramel sauce at the bottom of the cup means you can sip it right up instead of having it float on top.
