Cool down the tropical heat with Starbucks’s summer-exclusive blended drink that packs a punch: Mixed Berry Frappuccino with Pomegranate Pearls. This smooth and fruity concoction, which will be available on April 9 until June 3 only, is made with mixed berry sauce blended with velvety milk, topped with cream to balance its tart berry flavor.

“One of our best-selling iced tea drinks (Iced Shaken Hibiscus Tea) has been very popular because of these pomegranate pearls, [that’s why] we decided to offer this as an add-on to your frappuccino and teas,” said Category Manager Jamie Silva during Starbucks’s Siren Island summer kick-off event.

Alongside this offering was the introduction of the coffee company’s three new core drinks—the Triple Mocha Frappuccino, the Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino, and the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino—which you can order starting April 9.

“Since the Mocha Frappuccino was introduced 24 years ago, it has actually attracted our younger customers to begin their journey with Starbucks,” added Silva. “While these frappuccinos are fun and indulgent, we also want to make it a little coffee-forward; just to add a little kick to your favorite beverages.”

The Triple Mocha Frappuccino is loaded with dark mocha sauce layered between cold-brew infused whipped cream, white chocolate, and dark caramel. The new Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino blended beverage, on the other hand, offers layers of signature whipped cream infused with cold brew, white chocolate and dark caramel.

Another drink added to the regular menu is the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino, a confectionery-inspired blend of chocolaty chips, mocha sauce, raspberry and vanilla syrup, topped with whipped cream.
