I always live for that time of year when Starbucks pulls out their exclusive Happy Hour event: half off Frappuccinos. This year, I was even more excited because Starbucks introduced their newest Frappuccino, and no, I'm not talking about the Unicorn drink. I'm talking about the Midnight Mint Mocha. Once again, Starbucks knows the way to my heart, as anything flavored mint is my jam. My cravings for the Peppermint Mocha holiday special can now be satisfied this summer with the game changer that is the Midnight Mint Mocha. 

Happy Hour

That's right, Happy Hour is half off any cold Frappuccino beverage. What a perfect opportunity to debut some fresh additions to the menu. Half off on all Frappuccinos – now that is a steal. Whether it's the Midnight Mint Mocha or the S'mores drink that they brought back, you won't be disappointed. If you didn't make it out before May 12th, no worries, they come around pretty often. Keep a look out for the next offer.

Drink of the Hour

Even if you did miss happy hour, I still recommend getting out and trying the Midnight Mint Mocha. Dark cocoa, coffee, mint sugar crystals, layered with whipped cream...it is really as delicious as it sounds. The coffee flavor adds the perfect balance, as it's not too overwhelmingly cocoa. Although fairly rich, the mint flavor adds a nice fresh taste, making the Frappuccino not too heavy. It's also surprisingly different from the holiday Peppermint Mocha, too. The Midnight Mint Mocha wasn't overly sweet, the perfect pick-me-up for those long summer days. 

Get it While it Lasts

Get out there and indulge in this latest masterpiece that Starbucks has gifted us with. Whether it's Happy Hour or not, we don't know how long this will last, so take advantage of the Mint Mocha while it's here!
