Don’t have a date this Valentine’s Day? Starbucks has got you covered.
Tony Aguilar, an employee at a licensed Starbucks in a Tuscon, Arizona, made three different Valentine’s Day frappes in time for Feb. 14. Aguilar posted his store’s recipes on Reddit and they quickly became a hit.
“I was actually surprised with how popular they became,” Aguilar told Cosmopolitan.
The three secret Valentine’s Day frappes are called Valentine Frappuccino, Love Bean Frappuccino, and Java Berry Frappuccino.
The Valentine Frappuccino is a Strawberries and Cream frappe with raspberry pumps to make it extra pink. Vanilla bean and blackberry are respectively added in the middle and on top. The drink is topped with whipped cream.
The Love Been Frappuccino is simpler. It is a Vanilla Bean frappe with raspberry pumps, all topped with raspberry-infused whipped cream and chocolate curls.
Finally, there’s the Java Berry Frappuccino. It is a Java Chip frappe topped with raspberry infused whipped cream.
They aren’t official drinks, but they all sound tempting. They certainly go well with the store’s themed merchandise.
These specialty drinks are available at all Starbucks locations. Provided that these locations have all the necessary ingredients, that is. Some branches don’t have blackberry syrup or raspberry-infused whipped cream, as Popsugar.com found out.
Singletons aren’t the only customers who can enjoy these awesome frappes, though. Caffeine-crazy couples can try them too. They just have to be able to tell the barista the ingredients involved in making each drink.
This is not the first time Starbucks whipped up fun, holiday-themed drinks.
The coffee giant previously released special Halloween-themed drinks. They offered “Frappula Frappuccino” last year and “Franken Frappuccino” two years ago.
A Starbucks spokesperson earlier told Cosmopolitan that there are more than 36,000 ways you can customize a Frappuccino.
“If customers would like to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu, we recommend they know the recipe so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them,” he said.
