So it's no secret that there are all sorts of crazy personalized concoctions people foist upon their local Starbucks baristas, but this is the first time we've heard of this one.

OC Weekly Twitter follower @RikiYamada (follow us on Twitter at @OCWeekly and @OCWeeklyFood) was kind enough to share with us his recipe for the Key Lime Pie Frappuccino.

Find out the recipe and our verdict after the jump!

In a grande cup:
  • Lemonade filled up to the first line
  • Milk to the second line
  • 3 pumps of Frappuccino cream base
  • 3 pumps of white mocha
  • 2 scoops of protein
  • Ice

My barista--who also complimented me on my hair, you awesome, awesome man, you--crinkled his nose at the drink, then added a sprinkling of toasted coconut and chocolate syrup to top it off, saying he thought it'd make it taste better.

Our verdict? Our resident caffeine addict/Associate Editor Patty Marsters reports that the drink tastes more like a coconut-cream pie than key lime--with only a slight acidic aftertaste. And, actually, a coconut-cream pie is a tastier option anyway.

A Marble Mocha Machiato - It's like a Caramel Machiato except the Vanilla is replaced with White Mocha and the Caramel Drizzle is replaced with Mocha Drizzle.

There is a zebra mocha, which is 2 pumps of white chocolate and 2 pumps of mocha, and then the espresso and then milk...... dirty chai tea is chai tea drink with 2 shots of expresso, thus making it dirty looking....

My comment after the jump.I always ask them for a Hobo Float (ice-water w/toothpick) plus directions to the nearest Peet's. No one has ever complimented my hair.
