"Ask for a Venti water with peach juice," a computerized voice says in Shay’s video. "So cheap and so good."
The 11-second clip was shared to TikTok on Dec. 8, 2021, and it has been viewed by more than 3.7 million people. Fox News Digital reached out to Shay for comment.
TikTok's users were divided about Shay’s drink hack in the comments section. Some praised the method while others argued that Shay’s recommendation is a "custom tea" order and should cost more.
In additional reply videos, Shay explained that she works at a Starbucks location inside a Kroger supermarket.
Although not all baristas agree with Shay’s drink recommendation, customers have gone to Starbucks locations throughout the country and have documented their experience on TikTok.
Many of these reply videos and reviews can be found under the app’s Starbucks Secret Menu hashtag. In these videos, successful water and juice purchases have varied in price depending on the Starbucks location, but for the most part, each were priced under $1.
"Customizing beverages at Starbucks and our baristas’ expertise in helping customers find and craft the right beverage has and always will be at the heart of the Starbucks Experience," a spokesperson for Starbucks told Fox. "While we do not sell splashes of juices or syrups as separate beverages, if a customer would like to customize their beverage we recommend talking with their barista, so they can perfectly craft their beverage to their liking. Customers can add items such as syrup or an additional shot of espresso to beverages on our menu for an additional charge."
