UPDATE 29/6/16: There’s more! Remember that ‘Taste The Rainbow’ Skittles ad? Well apparently we’re all about to drink the rainbow, too.
Yep, ‘Starbucks Squad’ @hungryhugh, @foodwithmichel, @cookeatlift, @healthnutlife and @lovetram shared a snap of the coffee haunt’s new drinks, and this time it’s all about colour. Being a secret menu, though, you’ll need to head to your local Starbucks armed with the recipe you require… Notepads at the ready:
#PurpleDrink: Passion Ice Tea with soy milk, vanilla syrup, and blackberries
#OrangeDrink: Orange Mango Juice mixed with two scoops vanilla bean powder, and topped with coconut milk
#GreenDrink: Black Tea with matcha, and coconut milk (it looks like some Instagrammers are adding strawberries, too)
#BlueDrink: Passion Ice Tea with soy milk and vanilla syrup
We’ll take one of each.
27/1/16: We brought you details of the McDonald’s secret menu, but now Starbucks have upped the anti with their all-new and extremely tasty new drinks menu, yep we’re just as excited as you are.
The hot new beverages couldn’t come at a better time, with the winter chill not looking to shift anytime soon. But before you rush to your nearest Starbucks, loyalty card in hand, check out the tasty new flavours that are available…
The Pistachio and Rose Mocha
A heavenly combination if ever there was one…
With a tasty decadent mocha sauce and a new rose and pistachio syrup, this tasty latte treat is topped with, wait for it…rose whipped cream and even more pistachio, heavenly.
The Burnt Caramel Latte
All the caramel goodness in a cup!
We all love a bit of caramel, this new espresso flavour is topped with tasty whipped cream and a drizzle of burnt caramel, yum!
Starbucks haven’t stopped there either. Just to tantalize our taste buds even more, they have resurrected a classic. It’s the return of the Starbucks Triple Hot Chocolate. So for all the non-coffee drinkers this ones right up your street, with the signature hot chocolate base and classic whipped cream, topped with a choice of dark or white mocha sauce. The perfect Valentines day drink will be available from 12-14th of February, with an amazing buy one get one free offer too, we know where we’ll be rushing to in the morning’s!
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching and if you have a penchant for a cool Frap, and whether you’re a single pringle or basking if your in a loving relationship, you can certainly still appreciate the beauty of a Starbuck’s Frappuccino.
And thanks to one Barista in the United States, these babies have some added V-Day treats.
Tony Aguilar works at a Starbucks in Arizona, and he’s the mastermind behind the Valentine’s Day Frappuccinos. Sharing his creamy creations on a Reddit thread, he told the world wide web: ‘My coworkers and I came up with some Valentine’s Day drinks to go with our Valentine’s Day merchandise.’
They were an instant hit.
Now, you probably can’t stroll on in to your local Starbucks and order one of these by name, as they’re not official drinks. But if you want to mix them up yourself, Tony has shared the secret.
1. Valentine Frappuccino
Starbucks’ classic Strawberries and Cream, but with raspberry pumps to make it extra pink, a vanilla bean in the middle and a blackberry on top. And don’t forget to top it all off with some whipped cream.
2. Love Bean Frappuccino (Aw)
Vanilla bean with raspberry pumps, topped with raspberry infused whipped cream and chocolate curls.
Hands up who’s about to make a coffee run?
