The rainy days is upon us. You can tell by the drizzle in our afternoons and rain in our evenings. But you know what, it’s still Summer at Starbucks. Oh, let me correct myself, it’s always Summer at Starbucks especially when I think about how refreshing their Frappuccinos are!
The other day was a pool party at Le Rêve Events Venue to celebrate #SummerAtStarbucksPH. The set-up was boho chic, bright, and Summery.
There was acoustic music serenading us and making the mood more romantic. It reminds me of Summer at the beach with loved ones where in I feel so relaxed and carefree, not thinking about anything but enjoying the moment.
One of the highlights of my day at the event was getting to design this recyclable Starbucks cup. For me, #SummerAtStarbucksPH reminds me of the sunshine, clouds, birds, coconut trees, and the beach. And that’s what I tried to draw on there… heehee. well, the keyword there is tried.
The best part of my day is finding out two new Frappuccino® Blended Beverages that would continue to inspire our sense of summertime adventures.
Ladies and gents, meet the Double Chocolate Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Beverage (Tall–₱175 Grande-₱185 Venti–₱195), is a Green Tea Frappuccino infused with crunchy Java Chips layered with a smooth chocolate sauce at the top and bottom of the cup. It is then topped with whipped cream and a light dusting of Green Tea powder. Expect the chocolate sauce to be deliciously sticky because it’s the same chocolate sauce in the Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino.
Also let me introduce to you the Chocolate Black Tea With Earl Grey Jelly Frappuccino Blended Beverage (Tall–₱180 Grande-₱190 Venti–₱200), a blend of Kenyan Tea leaves and chocolate infused into a smooth and delicious Black Tea Frappuccino. This beverage starts with a layer of refreshing and aromatic Earl Grey Tea Jelly then topped with a smooth Black Tea Frappuccino with chocolate Java Chips and finished with whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate Black Tea powder.
