Starbucks Is Adding 3 Frozen Lemonades To Its Permanent Menu

Starbucks, known for its flavored lattes and delicious teas (like the soothing medicine ball tea, now called Honey Citrus Mint Tea), has released three new frozen beverages — Frozen Pineapple Passionfruit Lemonade, Frozen Strawberry Açaí Lemonade, and Frozen Mango Dragonfruit Lemonade — just in time for the summer solstice and hot temps sure to follow. The three new flavors are permanent additions to the cold drink menu blending real fruit, lemonade, and strawberry purée with its popular Refreshers beverages. 

Like its current Refreshers options— Dragon Drink, Mango Dragonfruit, Paradise Drink, Pineapple Passion, Pink Drink, and Strawberry Açaí — customers can purchase the new flavors now frozen in four sizes: tall (12 fluid ounces), grande (16 fluid ounces), venti (24 fluid ounces), and trenta (30 fluid ounces). These frozen lemonades come on the heels of Starbucks launching ready-to-drink Pink Drink and Paradise Drink, which also had a unique pairing thanks to designer Brandon Blackwood. Stating that the drinks needed "bright and bold" accessories, Starbucks had a limited run of some matching sling bottle bags. Similarly, Starbucks has paired with an artist for the frozen lemonade release to create some inclusive designs.

New merch released with the frozen lemonade

Starbucks hopes customers will enjoy the frozen lemonades in its two new lines of reusable drinkware. Five new plastic cold cups are now available in neon colors and tropical designs for summer. And as part of its Artist Collaboration Series, Washington DC-based artist and illustrator Yiqiao Wang designed cups depicting the word "connect" in American Sign Language (ASL) in honor of the Deaf community. Wang's design is available on several different styles of drinkware.

This is the company's second collection in the Artist Collaboration Series, following the drinkware designed by Toronto-based artist Tim Singleton, which debuted in the United States and Canada on May 30, 2023. Singleton's vibrant artwork features retro rainbows, peace signs, and fans to reflect how he relates to the world as a "queer person and a gay man." The limited-time merch includes two 24-ounce glittery plastic cold cups and a 16-ounce stainless steel tumbler. As an extra incentive to invest in these colorful and inclusive creations, anyone who brings in their own mug or tumbler gets a $0.10 discount (and an extra 25 stars if they happen to be Rewards members).
