Starbucks Is Adding Something New to Its Frappuccinos That Will Make Them Even More Addictive

So dreamy!

This summer, Starbucks drinks have been all about the 'gram. From officially sanctioned, bright-colored drinks like granitas (opens in new tab) to the customized pink drink (opens in new tab)purple drink (opens in new tab), and all colors of the rainbow drink, if it doesn't look cute in a photo, don't even bother ordering it.

Luckily, Starbucks is here for you, and is introducing a dreamy-looking new way to order a Frappuccino: affogato-style. If this is the first you've heard the word, an affogato is an Italian dessert in which a shot of hot espresso is poured over cold vanilla gelato or ice cream. The result is a deliciously melty, caffeinated delight. Here's what it looks like:

The Starbucks version will make any Frappuccino on the menu "affogato-style," meaning a barista will pour a shot of espresso on top of the drink for a beautiful marbling effect. They're featuring three suggested flavors, Vanilla Bean, Caramel, and Mocha.

Affogato-style Frappuccinos will be available at Starbucks in the U.S. and Canada starting on July 7 and lasting through the summer. So it'll cool you off while giving you a caffeine buzz and all the likes on Instagram. Seems pretty good to us.
