Two thumbs up for Starbucks. I don’t say that lightly. The latest on their menu is a new line of energy drinks minus the sugar and crazy adrenaline rush. The new line of energy drinks called “Refreshers” are perfect for Summer and this crazy humidity we’ve been facing lately here in Orange County.
On Friday, July 13th Starbucks held an open house at their many locations giving customers a chance to try the drinks in two flavors – cool lime and very berry hibiscus. The drinks are made with real fruit, juice, and a green coffee extract. The green coffee extract is the cool part here. It is slow roasted and pulls the naturally occurring caffeine from coffee minus the coffee flavor. The result isn’t immediate but felt slowly as you get through your drink. The two flavors are unique and you’re left feeling “refreshed” and naturally energized.
In this episode, Gloria Vega joins me at the Starbucks located at The Village apartments in Irvine adjacent to the Irvine Spectrum. We make it just in time for the open house cutoff and talk about our experience in the podcast.
