What are you in the mood for today? Color can influence how we feel, and there’s a Starbucks iced beverage in every flavor of the rainbow – from the soothing green of an Iced Matcha Tea Latte to the deep magenta of the Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refreshers® beverage. No matter what you’re craving, Starbucks has a refreshing iced drink to match every emotion (and every outfit!).
Joining the color spectrum this summer is the happy yellow of the new Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers® beverage and Pineapple Passionfruit Starbucks Refreshers® beverage. The golden-hued drinks are made with flavors of pineapple and passionfruit, hand-shaken with real diced pineapple pieces and ice with the addition of creamy coconutmilk in the Paradise Drink for a piña colada flavor.
Raegen Powell, a senior developer from Starbucks R&D who led the creation of the new drinks, said the sunny shade of the new beverages is part of their appeal.
“We wanted to create something to make people feel happy,” Powell said. “It’s a mood booster,” Powell said.
