Trendy coffee place continues to create famous drinks

Searcy (LP) Starbucks, the Seattle-based coffee chain, is a very popular place to hang out and buy tasty drinks. Tea, smoothies, and many different types of coffee are sold there. The latest trendy drink is the Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino. It is made up of dark cocoa, mint, and the Frappuccino roast coffee, with blended milk and ice. Skylar Davis, barista at the Starbucks in Searcy, says “It’s a Frappuccino base; add a scoop of ice, more of the base, it helps the milk and ice combine, then a dark chocolate powder, then mint mocha. We blend all of that together and pour half of the drink, put a layer of whipped cream, the rest of the drink, and top it off with more whipped cream and chocolate powder. About twenty to fifty people buy it a day.”
