Starbucks Refreshers are designed to be a fruity drink with a little bit of a coffee pick-me-up from green coffee extract. They are refreshing, both the drinks that are made in Starbucks stores and the lightly carbonated versions sold in grocery stores. I usually just pop the cans open and enjoy them as-is, but their fruity flavors make them a good candidate for mixing with other drinks – like tea, fruit juices and even spirits. Barman’s Journal created a half dozen delicious-sounding cocktails that all use one of the three Refreshers varieties as their base.
Pictured above is an Amaretto and Orange, made with a Starbucks Orange Melon Refresher, while pictured below is the Strawberry Basil Lemonade, made with a Starbucks Strawberry Lemonade Refresher. The drinks look gorgeous and sound delicious. I think I know what I’ll be serving at my next barbecue this summer!
