As an emblem of our childhood adventures and current trends, Starbucks released a one-of-a-kind Pokemon Go-themed Frappuccino. For professional trainers and casual players alike, you can get your hands on the drink with the help of a few select ingredients.
As the Pokemon theme song goes, traveling across the land can get you searching far and wide, so why not have a delicious treat to accompany you while you’re at it?
While the Pokemon Go Frappuccino is not an official item posted on your local Starbucks’ menu, it acts as a “Secret Menu Item” accessible to anyone who knows its ingredients.
The drink also sits in various locations of PokeStops and Gyms that you can access while playing the game. Players only need to tap on the Starbucks branch as viewed within the application, and the drink will magically appear on your device’s screen.
However, for those interested in tasting the actual drink, you only need to follow a simple guide to have your barista whip you up the delicious drink!
To make your very own Pokemon Go Frappuccino, you only need to follow this recipe:
- Begin with a base of a regular Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
- Top it with raspberry syrup and frozen whole blackberries
- And finally, ask to add a dollop of whip cream on top
If you’re lucky to get a fellow Pokemon Go Trainer barista, you might not need to dictate the recipe, but try to remember it just in case!
That said, suppose you’re worried that the drink might not be available. In that case, it is worth noting that the ingredients required are common in local Starbucks branches, so you should count on them having it in stock most of the time!
If one or two ingredients may not be available at your local Starbucks, however, you can always attempt making the Frappuccino yourself to see if you have what it takes to Catch ‘Em All!
Quick Fact: For reference, some fans of the Pokemon Go drink enthusiasts also recommend adding heavy cream to your Frappuccino for a thicker, more flavorful consistency. You can also never go wrong by adding more raspberry syrup and blackberries for an extra treat!
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the Pokemon Go Frappuccino from Starbucks, this is your sign to order one right now! So, what are you waiting for? As the Pokemon catchphrase says, you Gotta Catch’ Em All!
