On Tuesday, June 19, Starbucks released a brand-new summertime drink called the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher, and it’s even prettier than the company’s all-so-famous Pink Drink.
Starbucks’ Mango Dragonfruit Refresher is a tropical-inspired, tea-like drink made with a combination of sweet mango and real diced dragon fruit (also known as pitaya), which gives it a bright (aka Insta-worthy) magenta color. Since its release, social media users have been posting photos of the picturesque drink with the hashtag #mangodragonfruitrefresher.

Starbucks’ Summer Sunrise and Summer Sunset Cold Foam Tea Lemonades
On Friday, Starbucks surprised its customers with yet another drink drop. To celebrate the summer solstice, Starbucks released two Cold Foam Tea Lemonades (sounds kind of strange, right? I mean, cold foam. Does anyone really want cold foam?). The new summertime additions, named Summer Sunrise and Summer Sunset, are made with a pineapple blend and lemonade.

Starbucks describes the Summer Sunrise as “a cold foam tea lemonade that evokes the bright morning sun with tropical pineapple infusion and lemonade that's sweetened with classic syrup, topped with a velvety cold foam infused with sweet Teavana Passion Tango herbal tea,” whereas the Summer Sunset is described as “a cold foam tea lemonade inspired by dramatic sunsets. This beverage gets its deep pink hue thanks to the addition of Teavana Passion Tango Tea to the pineapple flavors and lemonade. It's also topped with velvety, sweet Passion Tango herbal tea cold foam.”
So, what is “cold foam,” exactly?
Apparently, “cold foam” is just like hot foam, except it’s chilled (or in Starbucks’ terms, it’s frothed cold instead of hot.) Mmm. I’m still not convinced, but OK.
