I just took down our snowmen decorations from our front porch and put out a huge basket of forsythias and violets. I am SO done with winter.
Violets always remind me of spring because of their beautiful purple color, and because of the famous Violet Lemonade served in the spring at Walt Disney World.
Because I am here in the cold, and not currently in Disney World, I did some creative thinking to figure out how to bring these magical spring flavors to me. More specifically – to my local Starbucks.
Bloom! The newest addition to the Starbucks Secret Menu – the Blooming Violet Refresher was created.
This yummy drink will give you all of the spring vibes you are searching for this time of year thanks to the unique blend of blackberry, lemon and vanilla.
Just be sure to grab the recipe below – this drink can’t be found on the regular Starbucks menu!
How to Order a Blooming Violet Refresher
Start by ordering a Venti Violet Refresher with light coconut milk and light ice. (A Violet Refresher is a blend of blackberries, Berry Hibiscus Refresher and coconut milk.)
Ask the barista to add lemonade to your drink.
Top with Vanilla Sweet Cream Foam and Blackberry Inclusions.
Don’t forget to thank and tip your Barista for helping you welcome spring with something extra special.
