On Tuesday, June 21, Starbucks added a radiant pop of color to the summer season. The newest refreshing beverages to join the chain’s seasonal menu include the bright and bold Pineapple Passionfruit and Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverages, alongside new food items.
“The Paradise Drink Starbucks Refreshers beverage is like sunshine in a cup – the bright tropical flavors are radiant, happy and joyful. It’s the perfect summer sip for a little moment of escape wherever you are,” says Raegan Powell, a senior product developer from Starbucks R&D who led the creation of the new drink.
The Starbucks summer menu includes:

Customers can also order the beverage with lemonade for an extra burst of flavor
