Starbucks baristas already despise the new Unicorn Frappuccino, so adding any variation of it only makes things worse.
A well-intentioned barista used the colorful ingredients from the Unicorn Frap, to make a couple of two-toned lemonade drinks that actually look pretty cool.
Hoping to get some love from fellow baristas on Reddit, the photo was posted, but was immediately met with cries of “DO NOT LET THIS HIT SOCIAL MEDIA.”
If the ingredients are available, Starbucks baristas can make anything your crazy little heart desires, so if these drinks were to get publicized, there’s a good chance customers will ask for it. We saw it with the Pink Drink, The Purple Drink, and the Orange Drink. If something looks cool and Instagrammable, it will be ordered by the masses.
The drink to the left was described as having the Unicorn Frap’s blue powder on the bottom layer, and the top with the pink. The one on the right is lemonade with the blue powder on the bottom and passion tea on top. The posting barista then instructed that, “If you put extra ice in the cup you’re able to layer it :)”
Now everyone hates him.
Baristas on the thread replied with, “If this gets out, we’re fucked… again,” and “No no no, stop, don’t give Instagram ideas, you bastard.”
The Unicorn Frappuccino is only available through the weekend, then the ingredients disappear, so even if these drinks actually did catch on, it would all end in a matter of days. Have a nice weekend, Starbucks.
