Who says summer is over?

Popular coffee chain Starbucks continues to capture the essence of vacation time with its latest drinks and snacks to reinvigorate one’s mood this season.

Patrons can expect to be rejuvenated by its new summer drinks, the sweet and colorful Green Grape Yuzu Refreshers and the tasty Burnt Caramel Oatmilk beverages.

The Green Grape Yuzu Refreshers are made with real fruit juice of exotic Yuzu and familiar green grapes with a pop of energy boost.

Yuzu is a sour citrus fruit from Asia that is highly nutritious and is said to contain powerful antioxidants.

In Starbucks’ concoction, the slight bitterness of the Yuzu fruit pieces adds complexity to the flavor profile, while the sweet aroma of Green Grape juice enhances the overall drinking experience.​

The drink is available in sizes of tall, grande and venti.

Meanwhile, the Burnt Caramel Oatmilk drinks come in frappuccino and latte versions.
