Sonic Secret Drinks Menu

Here are the hidden gems in Sonic’s drink collection that usually people don’t know:

1. Sonic Sunrise

It is one of the most popular hidden items and is named for its vibrant hue that mirrors a beautiful sunrise.

This drink is a mixture of equal parts of Sonic Cherry Limeade and Sonic Orange Juice. Since both components have a tangy flavor, the drink may taste bold and zesty in the beginning.

2. Sonic Sunshine Smoothie

If you are tired of having plain ice cream, try this smoothie made from vanilla ice cream, refreshing orange juice, strawberry, and banana.

It contains real fruits, which makes it healthier than other drink options on the Sonic Secret menu. However, you should know that it is still high in sugar. Therefore, make sure you check its calorie count to know how many calories you consume in each delicious sip.

3. Pepper Orgasm

Mix your favorite Dr. Pepper with lemonade and blue Powerade for a sweet yet tangy carbonated drink. It may not have a pretty color, but it tastes amazing. The color is basically dark brown, like Dr. Pepper or Coca-Cola.

If you are with family and do not feel comfortable saying this name loudly, simply state its ingredients. The employee will likely get what you are looking for.

4. Purple Sprite

It is a one-of-a-kind Sprite drink containing cranberry juice, Powerade, and lemonade. Its peculiar purple color makes it an Insta-worthy item, perfect for those who like sharing beautiful things online.

Though this revitalizing drink is commonly called Purple Sprite, Sonic employees may call it Purple Passion and Purple O at some branches.

5. Slap Yo Mama

Sonic Secret Menu items often have quirky names that are catchy and easy to remember. Take “Slap Yo Mama,” for instance, a favorite that is sure to grab your attention.

But what is in this refreshing drink that everyone loves? It is a Powerade slush with lemonade and raspberry flavorings. Powerade is a bit salty, which perfectly complements the sweet lemonade taste. Raspberry is the icing on the top, adding a fruity twist to the slush.

6. Pink Flamingo

Pink drinks are quite popular among Sonic fans, and that is for a good reason. Their vibrant color and refreshing taste offer a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. Among these, the Pink Flamingo stands out.

It is a Sprite-infused drink. Its key ingredient is Sprite, which contains three tropical flavors: pineapple, orange, and cherry juice. It will certainly transport you to tropical destinations with every sip.

7. Pink Lady

@_audreymartin Have you tried the Pink Lady drink from Sonic yet? #sonic #sonicdrivein #sonicdrinks #pinklady #fyp #foryou ♬ FEEL THE GROOVE – Queens Road, Fabian Graetz

Sonic Pink Lady is another fruity and creamy delight you can enjoy on hot summer days to feel refreshed and energized. Its three main ingredients include Sprite, cherry flavoring, and vanilla cream.

Pink Lady was once a part of Sonic’s menu but was later discontinued. Hence, many Sonic employees can still recognize this name. But if they find it unfamiliar, you can tell them to mix the above-mentioned ingredients to create a perfectly balanced creamy beverage.

8. Pepper Float

Level up your Dr. Pepper game by adding real ice cream above it to create an ice cream delight.

You can sip Dr. Pepper with a straw and enjoy the ice cream with a spoon. Or, if you prefer a more unified taste, stir them together for a blended concoction that combines the best of both worlds.

9. Java Chiller

Finally, here is something for chocolate lovers! Sonic Java Chillers are actually chocolate shakes containing coffee and ice cream. They are topped with whipped cream and your choice of chocolate or caramel syrup.

Enjoy this mouth-watering delight when you crave something creamy and chocolaty with an added energy boost.
