Making Cocktails With Starbucks Refreshers

_DSC0259

Starbucks Refreshers are a popular summer drink Starbucks offers that are made with green coffee extract, an extract made from unroasted coffee beans that contains some caffeine, but no coffee flavor. The extract is perfect for mixing with juices and teas because it gives you a little pick me up – and that is exactly what it does in cocktails, too. These six cocktails all use Starbucks Refreshers as a base, which translates to real fruit juice and just enough caffeine to give you a little boost in a healthier and more delicious way than a typical energy drink. Starbucks sells Refreshers in their stores, but these cocktails all use the canned Refreshers that are more widely available in both Starbucks stores and grocery stores.
