The Mermaid Frappuccino Is Starbucks’ Latest Gift to Your Instagram Feed
We totally predicted this! After Starbucks announced that it would be introducing more specialty frapps in the wake of the super successful Unicorn Frappuccino, we knew that the Pink Pegasus Frappuccino and Dragon Frappuccino wouldn’t be the only mythically inspired drinks coming our way. And now it looks like we were absolutely right to assume that the next flavor would be a surely delish Mermaid Frappuccino.
Reportedly created by Starbucks’ employee The Modern Barista, the Mermaid Frappuccino looks a lot like the Dragon Frapp with a pink and green mixture, but uses a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino as the base as opposed to a Green Tea Frappuccino.
To order, find a friendly barista who’s willing to pop three scoops of blackberry into a grande Vanilla Bean Frappuccino. Now here’s where it gets a little tricky: You’ll want to add a drizzle made up of eight pumps of white mocha, three pumps of toasted coconut, and three scoops of matcha powder. If they’re not willing to make the drizzle for you, Starbucks Melody suggests topping your whipped cream with matcha for an (almost) equally awesome drink.
We have to say, we would’ve added a little more sparkle, flash, and fabulousness to our mermaid-inspired treat (just take a peek at mermaid toast for a perfect example), but we’re sure this is just as tasty.
