Most of us count down the minutes and moments until summer, excitedly waiting for that sunny time of the year when we can take a break, relax, and just have fun. As soon as it rolls in, we make every minute count, savoring even the small moments in between our bigger escapades. Summer is whatever you make it and for some, even the simple act of stepping into their favorite Starbucks for an indulgent break is already a mini vacation.
Starting this April 9, Starbucks is inviting customers to come in to get away with a new set of beverages that taste like a short, sweet, sip of summer. Its new core drinks—the Triple Mocha Frappuccino, the Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino, and the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino—are perfect for dessert lovers.
The Triple Mocha Frappuccino is loaded with Dark Mocha Sauce layered between cold-brew infused whipped cream, white chocolate, and dark caramel.
Take away the Dark Mocha Sauce and add some rich and buttery Dark Caramel Sauce and the drink transforms into the delicious Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino.
Another drink added to the regular menu is the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino, a confectionery-inspired blend of chocolaty chips, mocha sauce, raspberry and vanilla syrup, topped with whipped cream.
For those who want to feel the tropical vibes, Starbucks also offers a limited-time beverage just for the season of sun – the Mixed Berry Frappuccino with Pomegranate Pearls. The smooth and fruity beverage is made with mixed berry sauce blended with velvety milk, topped with cream to balance its tart berry flavor.
Apart from their handcrafted Frappuccinos, Starbucks also offers a tropical treat in the form of fresh coffee beans with the new Starbucks Kopelani Blend – a blend that brings the flavors of Hawaii into each cup. At the heart of this summer creation is the Hawaiian Ka’u coffee, combined with East African and Latin American beans which enhances the nutty notes and caramelly sweetness, for which Ka’u coffee is known for.
Carry with you the perfect complement for the balmy weather – the Botanical card, a Starbucks Card which features island scenes and tropical plants, available for an initial activation amount of Php300.
Another fun and cute design is the new Popsicle card, also available for an initial activation of Php300.
There will also be new Starbucks merchandise to help you feel summer-ready wherever you go. The ‘A Day in The Island’ collection transports customers straight to the beach with its gradient designs depicting island scenes from sunrise to sunset and tropical plants. With the sun brightly shining this time of year, the ‘Gold’ collection also perfectly captures the glow and shimmer of the season with its golden tumblers in new and classic shapes.
