April was the month of many different mystical creature drinks at Starbucks, from the Unicorn Frappuccino to Unicorn Lemonade to the Dragon Frappuccino to the Pink Pegasus and every other secret drink in between.
Well it's a new month so that calls for new magical beverages!
Now, it's the Mermaid Frappuccino's time to shine!!
The purple and green Mermaid Frapp was created by Starbucks barista and blogger The Modern Barista and it's mostly made with vanilla bean, blended blackberries, and matcha powder.
To order it, ask for a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino with three scoops of blackberry inclusions (for a grande).
Then, ask for a drizzle made with eight pumps of white mocha, three pumps of toasted coconut, and three scoops of matcha powder.
Starbucks Melody, a website dedicated to Starbucks news, suggests asking for whipped cream topped with matcha powder, if your barista doesn't want to make the drizzle.
Another barista suggests asking your barista for the Pokemon Go Frappuccino, which is the base of the Mermaid Frapp and then just explain the green drizzle recipe.
Another tip is to ask your barista to pour the drizzle around the cup like how the Unicorn Frappuccino's blue drizzle was before adding the rest of the Frappuccino mixture.
By doing this, it will create that pretty green and purple look, which is perfect for Instagram!
