    Here’s What Happened When I Tried The New Starbucks Mango Dragonfruit Drink

    Is this the new drink of the summer?

    Starting today, June 19th, Starbucks is adding an Instagram-worthy new Refresher drink to its permanent menu nationwide.

    It's called the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher and it's made with ice + mango dragonfruit base + freeze-dried dragonfruit pieces.
