Today I ordered two of the seasonal summer drinks at Starbucks. Featured on the left at the picture above is the Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresher. According to Starbucks “The tropical-inspired pick-me-up is crafted with a refreshing combination of sweet mango and dragonfruit flavors, handshakes with ice and a scoop of real diced dragon fruit.” Definitely refreshing and it’s a wonderful break from the Strawberry Açaí Refresher. The combination of mango and dragonfruit is definitely a winning one. I have to say though it’s leaning towards more of mango. Very tropical.
The second beverage I ordered was Summer Sunset which according to Starbucks “it is a cold foam tea lemonade inspired by dramatic sunsets, this beverage gets its deep pink hue thanks to the addition of Teavana Passion Tango™ Tea to the pineapple flavors and lemonade. It’s also topped with velvety, sweet Passion Tango herbal tea cold foam (contains milk).” It’s definitely a fun drink to look at. The pineapple flavors comes through making it light and very tropical despite the addition of the milk-containing cold foam. My favorite part is that I can control the amount of classic syrup that goes into this drink. I’m definitely going to get the Summer Sunrise on my next trip to Starbucks and will report back.xo, Emilie
