There was presumably a time when we went to coffee shops simply to purchase caffeinated beverages. But that time is no more. A drink from a coffee shop must now have a hue bright enough to read by, plenty of pizzaz, and, above all, make a strong showing on Instagram.
The newest member of this aggressively photogenic pantheon is the Mango Dragonfruit Starbucks Refresher. It is magenta. It is pretty. It even has "real red-fleshed dragon fruit (also known as pitaya) hand-shaken in the beverage with no artificial colors or sweeteners," according to a press release.
Is it coffee? No. But you can, however, swap the water out for coconut milk if you order a "Dragon Drink," which will both taste and look creamier and make your picture stand out from the stream of other Dragonfruit Refreshers.
