Unicorn Frappuccino fans were heartbroken when the instantly-viral drink's run came to a close; however, the Dragon Frapp immediately took its place, giving us all something on which to hang our proverbial hats in its magical cousin's absence. Since it's not an official menu item, though, thirsty customers are wondering how to order a Dragon Frappuccino at Starbucks. The Dragon Frapp's inception was somewhat of an accident — the unicorn drink was available for a limited time only, or while supplies lasted... which they didn't. It was so popular that some locations ran out of the ingredients to make it. Baristas began to get creative in an effort to satisfy customers, so using a few leftovers from the Unicorn Frapp, the came up with its dragon successor.
What will they think of next? Well, it could literally be just about anything. A Starbucks spokesperson tells Bustle, "In addition to the beverage options listed on our menu boards, there are more than 170,000 ways baristas can customize beverages at Starbucks, including selecting from a variety of milks, syrups, coffee/espresso options, and toppings." In other words, we've got roughly 169,999 flavor combinations to go.
In the meantime, how can you get your paws on the Dragon Frappuccino, without being able to order it directly off the menu? Starbucks tells us, "If customers want to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu boards, we recommend they know the recipe so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them." So, do your barista a favor: Don't roll up to the drive-thru speaker and ask for a Dragon Frapp. If you want to order this mouthwatering caffeinated beverage, here's what you need to do.
