Starbucks’ Dragon Drink – Worth it?

SO, I obviously lied when I said I would not try anymore of Starbucks’ fancy drinks. In a moment of weakness, I could not resist their new pink (my favorite color) drink.

Starbucks so kindly (or maybe not so kindly considering $$$) rolled out a new summer menu featuring the hot pink Dragon Drink. It is VERY convenient since Game of Throne’s final season is in full force (it has nothing to do with GoT but fans will still be attracted to it like I was).

While I shopped on Tuesday afternoon, I sipped (more like gulped) the Dragon Drink and I must admit, I loved it. I am a bit obsessed with dragon fruit especially since it is not always easy to find. The only negative thing I have to say is that I finished it way too fast.

Dragon Drink

The Dragon Drink is a tropical-inspired pick-me-up that is crafted with a refreshing combination of sweet mango and dragon fruit flavors, hand shaken with creamy coconut milk, ice and a scoop of real diced dragon fruit. It contains caffeine and coconut.

Not sure if I would order it again – maybe one more time before GoT ends – I am still partial to my basic iced coffee with almond milk.
