Starbucks acai strawberry refresher

With a few simple ingredients, you can enjoy your favorite summer refresher without leaving your kitchen.

Ingredients

To get started, gather these ingredients:

  • 6 strawberries
  • ¼ teaspoon acai powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon green coffee bean extract (optional for caffeine)
  • 4 tablespoons white grape juice
  • 4 tablespoons passionfruit juice
  • 1 cup pink lemonade
  • Ice

Why These Ingredients?

  • Strawberries: Fresh strawberries give a natural sweetness and vibrant color.
  • Acai powder: Adds a unique berry flavor and a boost of antioxidants.
  • Green coffee bean extract: For a gentle caffeine kick if desired.
  • White grape and passionfruit juice: Adds a fruity depth to the drink.
  • Pink lemonade: Provides a tangy and refreshing base.

Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Strawberry Base

  1. Mash four strawberries in a bowl until they release their juice.
  2. Stir in 1 teaspoon of sugar and ¼ teaspoon of acai powder. If you want caffeine, add ¼ teaspoon of green coffee bean extract.

Tips:

  • Use a fork or potato masher to smash the strawberries.
  • Adjust the sugar to your taste if you prefer it sweeter.

Step 2: Mix the Juices

  1. In a shaker, combine 4 tablespoons of white grape juice, 4 tablespoons of passionfruit juice, and 1 cup of pink lemonade.
  2. Add the strawberry-acai mixture to the shaker and shake well.

Tips:

  • A cocktail shaker works best, but you can use a sealed container if you don’t have one.
  • Shake vigorously to ensure all ingredients are well mixed.

Step 3: Serve

  1. Fill a glass with ice.
  2. Pour the mixed drink over the ice.
  3. Garnish with the remaining strawberries, slicing some for inside the glass and placing one on the rim.

Tips:

  • For a decorative touch, slice strawberries thinly and let them float in the drink.
  • Serve immediately for the best taste.

Additional Notes

Storing Leftovers

  • Store any leftover drink in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will stay fresh for up to 2 days.

Making Larger Batches

  • To serve at parties, simply scale up the ingredients proportionally. Use a large pitcher instead of a shaker.

Adding Fizz

  • For a fizzy twist, top your drink with sparkling water or soda. This adds a refreshing sparkle to your lemonade.

Example:

  • Mix the prepared strawberry acai lemonade with equal parts sparkling water for a lighter, bubbly drink.

By following these steps, you can enjoy a homemade version of Starbucks’ Strawberry Acai Lemonade anytime. It’s a perfect treat for hot summer days and a great way to impress your friends at gatherings. Enjoy!
