Remember The Starbucks Sunrise And Sunset Drinks? Here’s How To Make Them At Home

I LOVE Starbucks innovative drinks! The only problem? Some of them don’t last long! So we have started going through the list of drinks of Starbucks past and bringing them back to life!!!


Today we are going to cover the Sunrise and Sunset drinks from Starbucks! These two amazing drinks were featured in the summer of 2018 and were gone before many even got the chance to try them!

Not only were they pretty, but they were innovative and refreshing too! And now you can get your hands on them!


So let’s start with the Sunrise Drink. It’s so stinking pretty! If you’re into those trendy looking Instagram pics, this is the one for you!

How To Make The Starbucks Summer Sunrise Drink

You will need to grab these items:

You’ll have to start by brewing your passion tea and letting it cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour. You won’t need much for the actual drink but I personally make a pitcher just to have on hand to enjoy by itself!

You will need to mix half lemonade with half pineapple juice and a little bit of sugar. Then pour it over ice, leaving a few inches at the top.

The top of this drink is made with a passion tea cold foam. The easiest way to do this is mix a little passion tea with some coconut milk and use either a whisk, milk frother, or blender to create some foamy goodness!

How To Make The Starbucks Summer Sunset Drink

This is super complicated…are you sure you’re ready for this?

…add a little bit of passion tea to the bottom of your cup and follow the EXACT recipe for the Summer Sunrise Drink the rest of the way.

Yeeeeeeah…it’s kind of cheating. But the only difference between the two drinks is that the Sunset drink has a little passion tea in the bottom of the cup to give it a darker hue. Makes it easier for us!
