Here’s How to Order a Pokémon Frappuccino from Starbucks

Starbucks has garnered a lot of attention this summer for its rainbow-colored “secret” drinks, but there’s a new one that’s ready to take over Instagram. By using this drink-ordering hack, Pokémon Go fanatics can create Starbucks Frappuccinos that look like Pokéballs.

According to Instagram photos, some select Starbucks (in Korea and New Zealand, specifically) are advertising this drink hack in their stores. The drink looks to be on the expensive side of things, because at its most basic level it uses two different Frappuccinos and a special strawberry whipped cream.

If your local Starbucks isn’t overtly advertising a Pokémon Frappuccino, you can still attempt to hack the system by ordering the following:

  • A Vanilla Bean Frappuccino at the bottom of the cup.
  • A Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino in the top part of the cup.
  • Top the drink with strawberry whipped cream (if available).

If you want to get extra serious about your drink, you could ask for a mocha drizzle in between the two layers of Frappuccino, and add a detached cake pop to the center of the drink.

Does this drink really look like a Pokéball? If you hadn’t told me that was the whole point behind this drink, I wouldn’t have known. But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun and that it won’t fuel your long Pokéwalks to catch ’em all.
