Two years ago Starbucks unveiled the coveted limited-time Unicorn Frappuccino, and everyone (at least everyone on Instagram) took notice. This year the coffee giant is making a summer splash again—but this time with a rainbow-hued Tie-Dye Frappuccino.
So what exactly is a Tie-Dye Frappuccino? According to Starbucks’ website, the drink starts with a tropical Crème Frappuccino base. The barista then adds dashes of yellow, red and blue powders made from red beet, tumeric and spirulina. Now that your Frap is rainbowed out, it’s topped with whipped cream and a dusting of colorful powder.
Designer of the drink, Paloma Carrington-Bataller, said in a press release, “We wanted to create something that celebrates summer and really conveys it both visually and through flavor within the beverage.” Carrington-Bataller also added, “We knew it had to make you smile at first sight and our Tie-Dye Frappuccino does all this! It’s summer in a cup and something everyone can relate to; it takes you back to sunny warm days of summer spent at camp or with friends and family.”
If you’re an all out adventurous Frap enthusiast, run to Starbucks right now. This colorful concoction isn’t part of the regular menu and is only available while supplies last.
