Starbucks Unveils the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher

This drink, with bits of real dragonfruit, celebrates the first day of summer!

June 20, 2018

Starbucks has unveiled a brand new beverage to mark tomorrow's summer solstice.  It's called the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher, and it's gorgeous.

Once upon a time, a mango met a dragonfruit... #MangoDragonfruitStarbucksRefreshers #AfternoonMade (US + Canada)

This refresher will have actual pieces of dragonfruit in it, a red-skinned fruit that explains the drink's vibrant color.  

Unlike other drinks the company has released on a temporary basis to build social media buzz, this refresher is here to stay!  And, given that everything at Starbucks has been, and always will be, fully customizable, there's already a variant of this drink for the epicures among us...namely, a Mango Dragonfruit refresher with coconut milk instead of water!  The result has been christened a "Dragon Drink."

Come try the NEW Mango Dragonfruit Refresher as is or with coconut milk for a creamier, sweeter taste! #dragondrink This tropical-inspired refresher is crafted with a combination of sweet mango and dragonfruit flavors, handshaken with ice and a scoop of real diced dragonfruit. (There are NO artificial colors or sweeteners, and comes in under 100 calories for a grande sized drink --)

After all, we all ALREADY spend most of our paychecks at Starbucks...why not add one more irresistable drink to the menu to really keep us coming back???  Thanks, Starbucks.

Enjoy these Instagram-worthy drinks starting on Thursday the 21st, the first day of summer!
