Move over those pink drinks and Frappuccino, the Starbucks Sparkling Spritz beverages are summertime perfection. While these three beverages are only available at Starbucks Reserve locations, one sip has had people gushing over the deliciousness. Are you craving this thirst quenching refreshment?

The spritz has become a favorite summertime beverage. While a touch of bubbles can turn any beverage into burst of excitement, the reality is that more people are craving sparkling beverages. Just sparkling water alone has seen a big increase in sales over the past year.

While Starbucks will always be associated with coffee, the reality is that the Starbucks Reserve locations look to push the beverage creativity. From cocktails to innovative flavors, these locations look to the future of beverages in a way that only Starbucks can.

What are the flavors of the Starbucks Sparkling Spritz beverages?

These four cold beverages combine sparkling water and muddled fresh fruit over ice. A touch sweet with sometimes a hint of savory, these beverages will have everyone re-thinking their traditional summer refreshment.

The flavors are Cucumber Mint Spritz, Strawberry Spritz, Strawberry Balsamic Spritz, Blood Orange Tea Spritz, and Watermelon Spritz. These beverages show how a spritz can be both sweet and savory.

While the Strawberry, Watermelon and Blood Orange Tea flavors might be the most approachable, it doesn’t mean that they lack vibrancy. The fresh fruit is just the right amount of sweetness without becoming too cloying.

The Cucumber Mint flavor might be a new twist on a mojito mocktail. While the mint can be more apparent, the cucumber adds that nuance for balance. This flavor combination might change some people’s approach to a cocktail, too.

Lastly, the Strawberry Balsamic Spritz is the most ambitious flavor. While strawberry and balsamic is a classic flavor combination, it isn’t usually a beverage option. That savory note might be unexpected, but it is a must try. It might make people rethink savory ingredients in beverages.
