#5. Opt for the Violet Drink

When you want something that looks and tastes like summer, the Violet Drink is definitely one that you want to ask for. It’s one of the Refreshers drinks, and is made with Very Berry Hibiscus Refreshers to create a creamy and tasty option.

Rather than normal milk, coconut milk is used. This is then mixed over ice so it’s served cold and you can enjoy it throughout the day. You’ll definitely want to share a picture of this with your friends, who will be completely jealous that you’ve found such a bright and vibrant drink. The coconut milk helps to skip over the dairy, although Starbucks does say that it can’t guarantee any cross contamination.

Freeze-dried black currents are added into the drink, giving you more of a berry flavor to your Starbucks summer drink.

There is caffeine in this drink. There’s green coffee extract used to help give it a bit of a zing.
