With Spring coming and going at the drop of a hat, we all need motivation and hope that warmer temperatures will come. Starbucks usually features a drink for a short amount of time, but you can hack the menu and create your own special Drinks. Here are some orders to use as inspiration for your own springtime drinks.

Cherry Blossom Frappuccino

  • Line your cup with white mocha sauce and matcha powder
  • Fill with strawberries and creme frappuccino
  • Top with whipped cream and matcha powder

While there is no flavor of cherry, in Japan the blossoming of the tree symbolizes new beginnings, so the name comes more from the nature of the trees rather than the flavor.

Violet Drink

Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

  • Green coffee extract and Hibiscus syrup over ice.
  • Add frozen blackberries and water, shake.
  • Coconut milk instead of water

Another iced drink that has less of a thick texture. This drinks color is a little darker than the iconic pink drink and the blackberries add to the deeper coloring.

Pokéball Frappuccino

  • Bottom half Vanilla Frappuccino
  • Top half Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino
  • Strawberry whipped cream

Even though "Pokémon Go" isn't as popular anymore, if your love for the franchise endures, this drink will inspire you to go outside and play the game again. You can also add some mocha to create the iconic opening in the middle of your drink.

Piña Colada Frappuccino

  • Crème Frappuccino with coconut milk to the first line
  • Pineapple infusion tea to the second line
  • Add extra ice and and an extra pump of crème base

This drink screams for spring and summer weather, preparing you to kick your feet up on a beach. If you're of drinking age, you could add some coconut rum for a twist as well.

Banana Split Mocha Frappuccino

  • Strawberries and Creme Frappuccino
  • Blend in a whole banana
  • Add Vanilla Bean powder
  • Add Java Chips
  • Top with whipped cream, mocha drizzle, and banana chips
  • Add caramel drizzle if desired

Ready for the ice cream but not the dripping mess? This drink allows you to slurp your split up a straw with little to no mess on your hands.

Matcha Lemonade

  • Matcha Tea Powder
  • Lemonade

If coffee or cream-based drinks aren't your style, here's an easy DIY drink that is equally as refreshing. The green color will remind you of the grass outside and the lemonade will prepare you for those lemonade stands I'm sure you'll drop some quarters at.

Super Fruit Iced Tea

  • Iced green tea
  • 1 scoop of lime
  • 1 scoop of strawberries
  • Optional: 1 scoop of berries for extra fruitiness

This is another tea that has the sweetness of spring but also the refreshing taste of green tea. The lime and berries will add some color to your drink so it's pretty to look at too.
