If you’re someone who likes to try different drinks from the Starbucks menu, you must have definitely tried the Dragon Drink. It sure looks like the Pink Drink and is very similar to the Mango Dragonfruit Refresher, but Starbucks Dragon Drink Recipe isn’t the same!

It is is a creamier and sweeter version of the Mango Dragon fruit Refresher with lots of natural flavors packed in one. It’s one of the cold drinks that you might wanna pick up on a hot day or when you simply need a refreshing drink during work hours.

The Starbucks Dragon Drink took off all too well because of the its Insta-fame just like its predecessors – Pink Drink and Violet Drinks! Besides, what’s not to like about this vibrant colored drink? Starbucks website calls it a tropical pick-me-up and sure enough it has a pleasant and refreshing vibe to it and it is also undeniably pretty to look at.

Starbucks Chai Tea Latte

Starbucks Iced White Chocolate Mocha

This iced drink has a combination of sweet mango and dragon fruit flavors with a creamy coconut milk and diced dragonfruits. And if you’re wondering if it contains caffeine then let me tell you, that the original drink does in the form of green coffee extract! However, our copycat version does not! It is smooth on your throat and sugary on your tongue with a few bites of the diced fruit every now and then.

This drink costs between $3.25 to $4.95, depending on the size and location at Starbucks. So, if you’re going to want to sip on this refreshing drink more often, it’s cheaper to make it at home.

Looking for more reasons to make it at home? Well, a grande Dragon Drink at Starbucks contains 23 grams of sugar! If you make it at home, you can make a healthier version by controlling how much sugar you add to it. You also have the option of making it caffeine-free!
