A barista teased an unofficial mermaid frappuccino earlier this year, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the day Starbucks made the mythical drink a real thing. Now, the wait is over – the Mermaid Frappuccino will be joining the likes of the Unicorn and Banana Split as one of the most Instagrammable beverages on its roster.
Apparently the drink is concocted with a green melon crème base, topped off with a huge dollop of blue vanilla whipped cream. Giving it a real magical touch is the dusting of blue and pink sugar crystals and iridescent purple pearls over the top. There’s just one teeny-tiny catch – the undersea treat will only release at Starbucks’ Mexican locations between August 24 and 31. Here’s to hoping that it gets a worldwide release – our Instagram feeds are ready and waiting.
