Starbucks has introduced four new drinks to its menu — three spicy lemonade refreshers and one spicy cream cold foam. Inspired by the “swicy” trend that combines the flavors of sweet and spicy, Starbucks is bringing together the zest of lemonade and the heat of Starbucks Spicy Chili Powder Blend to create a refreshing and tasty sip.  

Swicy, the sweet-heat trend

According to a statement from the company, these drinks are "inspired by the 'swicy' trend, which combines sweet and spicy flavors in all sorts of creative ways. The new Spicy Lemonade Refreshers bring together the sweetness of a Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, the zest of lemonade, and the heat of Starbucks Spicy Chili Powder Blend to create a deliciously refreshing sip with absolutely no chill." 

The three tropical flavors, Spicy Dragonfruit, Spicy Pineapple and Spicy Strawberry, and the new Spicy Cream Cold Foam, are available this Spring in U.S. Starbucks for a very limited time — while supplies last
