Thanks to the creative folks over at Starbucks, sweet, colorful, mythical beverages are having a moment right now — and we’re so here for it. We’ve had the internet-breaking Unicorn Frappuccino, then came the Dragon Frappuccino, followed by the Mermaid Frappuccino. And now, you can get your very own Narwhal Frappuccino from Starbucks (and yes, we know narwhals are real…but don’t they kind of seem made up?).
The Narwhal Frappuccino is supposed to taste like a pink Starburst and sounds positively delicious. After all, pink Starbursts are the best.
According to Refinery29, this brand new Frappuccino was created by Jócelyn Freeman, a Michigan-based barista and blogger, who also created the mermaid version.
Before we walk you through the ordering process, take a look at all the sugary, pink Narwhal Frappuccino goodness.
While the Narwhal Frappuccino isn’t an official menu item right now, Starbucks spokesman, Jarryd Boyd said, “If a customer would like to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu boards, we recommend they know the recipe, so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them.”
And how do you order one, you ask?
Creating a Narwhal Frapp is a three step process. Here’s how it’s done:
1. Order a blended strawberry lemonade with vanilla bean powder.
2. Ask for whipped cream on top, and ask if your barista can add green tea powder for extra color on top.
3. Then, finally and most importantly, take the perfect snap for Instagram.
There you have it — the Narwhal Frappuccino. Be sure to grab one while you can because something tells us a new mythical monster beverage might be on the rise soon.
And keep in mind that Starbucks Frapp Happy Hour starts on May 5th — half off Frappuccinos from 3-6 p.m. until May 14th.
