Starbucks' Frappuccino Happy Hour Is Back, And It's The Perfect Kickoff To Summer

Nothing beats a solid happy hour deal, unless of course Frappuccinos are involved. The Starbucks Frappuccino Happy Hour is back for a limited time only, and you know what that means — half-priced frosted beverages for everyone. Cheers, cheers, and more cheers!

The Happy Hour (or should we call it Frappy Hour?) returns to Starbucks May 3 and runs through May 15, which gives you almost two weeks to take advantage of the discounted drinks here to make your day a little sweeter. Not sure how the Happy Hour works? It's easier than trying to rally five of your closest friends to meet you for a drink after work, that's for sure. Just head into your closest Starbucks between the hours of 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. (conveniently for me, that's just about the time my afternoon slump kicks in), and receive half off any Frappuccino you order, no matter what flavor or size. See? I told you it was simple.

The Frappuccino Happy Hour deal only works with — duh — Frappuccinos, but that's all the more reason to use this to your advantage. Starting May 3, Starbucks is also rolling out its summertime Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccino, a brand new beverage made with dark caramel sauce and waffle cone syrup, to kick off the warm-weather season, and the only thing that could possibly make this new drink taste even better is knowing that you're saving some money. Normally, the Frappuccino runs between $4.25 and $4.95 for a tall, depending on the market, but thanks to Happy Hour you won't have to pay more than $2.50 to try the new summer-in-a-cup beverage.

Looking for another summer classic? Earlier this spring, Starbucks re-introduced us to the layered S'mores Frappuccino, a popular beverage from last year that comes with a pump of fudgy chocolate syrup, marshmallow sauce, and marshmallow-infused whipped cream, which might sound heavenly, and that's because it is.

No matter what you end up choosing, it's going to be half off, so you might as well use this opportunity to explore the Starbucks Frappuccino menu to its full potential. The beautiful part about any Starbucks beverage is that it can be customized to your liking, so go ahead and get creative! Summer will be here before you know it, and you're going to want something refreshing to sip on when the hot weather hits.

Oh, and one last thing. If you're going to tweet about your drink, there's a surprise in store if you use the hashtag #FrappuccinoHappyHour — a little Frappuccino emoji will automatically appear. Of course, you could also just download the Starbucks Emoji Keyboard. It's got the perfect pictogram to pepper your text messages with just the right amount of Frappuccino cheer. New flavors, slashed prices... there's definitely a lot to talk about.
