In case you're already over their new Frappuccinos or just hate coffee, Starbucks is rolling out a new trio of beverages for the season. Each of Starbucks's "handcrafted sodas" is made fresh, one at a time, and with natural ingredients, rather than high-fructose corn syrup and preservatives. Don't worry. They still taste good.
The Golden Ginger Ale blends real ginger with citrus zest, producing a golden (see what they did there?) hue. The Spiced Root Beer starts with a classic root beer base and adds in Starbucks Chai spices of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. And finally, the Lemon Ale squeezes in actual lemon juice with spices and a hint of apricot. These sodas will gradually roll out to 3,000 stores over the Summer. In the meantime, get your soda fix with gallons of The Good Doctor.
