And what makes it even better is the pearls of pomegranate that fire off an eruption of flavor when you have a gulp.

For fans of the frosty treats, have you heard about the Strawberry Pomegranate Frappuccino?(1)

It starts with a thick mixture of strawberry sauce and coconut milk, and then here’s the cool bit: pomegranate pearls get sprinkled in between. Yum!

So far, it tastes as amazing as they sound with their tart-and-sweet combo.

And for the cherry on top, it’s covered with a layer of coconut milk cold foam.

4. Pomegranate Frappuccino Juice Blends

In their 2006 summer menu, Starbucks offered a shake-up called the Pomegranate Frappuccino Juice Blend.

The mix was a freshly brewed Tazo green tea, pomegranate, peach, and a hint of mint.

Not only did it taste amazing, but it was also secretly the best from a health standpoint. One glass would give you ways beyond getting your vitamin C needs filled by nearly a half.

For reasons unknown, this drink seems to have vanished from the menu. If you ever had it, you’ll agree that it was the ultimate fruit cool-off.

Then, they throw in a dollop of fior di latte—that’s just creamy decadence. To finish it off, they add Starbucks Reserve espresso.

The drink is both nuanced and intriguing, offering a taste of the exotic with every sip.

If you’re already a fan of the Pink Drink, here’s a twist you’ll want to try.

Order your usual Pink Drink but ask them to skip the strawberry inclusions. Instead, go for pomegranate pearls (or add your own POM juice if you’re in North America). Optionally add a dollop of matcha cold foam on top.

The result? A unique blend of pomegranate and green tea flavors that’s both refreshing and Instagram-worthy.

Just order an Iced Passion Tango at the store and bring your own POM 100% pomegranate juice.

Mix it in, and you’ve got yourself a healthier version of a pomegranate drink. Since it’s 100% juice, you’re skipping all those artificial flavorings.

Level Up Your Starbucks Pomegranate Drinks With These Tips

Ready to level up your Starbucks pomegranate drink game? Whether you’re ordering off the secret menu or customizing a seasonal favorite, here are my tips to make your drink even more delicious.

Halved Strawberries

Replace Iced Tea With Lemonade

If you’re looking to switch things up, try replacing the hibiscus tea in your shaken iced tea with lemonade.

That little tweak really kicks in when you add the popping pomegranate pearls. Just a heads-up, though—this substitution might cost you a bit extra.

Make It Dairy-Free

If you are all in on plant-based milk or can’t stomach lactose, there’s this: ask them to replace standard milk with coconut milk for any pomegranate drink on the Starbucks menu.

There’s something about coconut milk that seems to fit right in with the tropical feels of pomegranate.

Just make sure to ask for coconut milk as the swap when you’re doing your order.

Mix Pomegranate With Other Berries

Want to add more layers of flavor?

Try mixing pomegranate with strawberry or raspberry syrup. It adds a different kind of sweetness and fruitiness that’s just amazing.

People are already trying out pomegranate in their pink drinks, and they’re loving it (see secret menu hack above)
