2 - 1 - 6 April 2015 - Drink of the Week from Grant in Huntington BeachEvery Monday, you’re seeing a new weekly column on this site. It’s “Drink of the Week.” The idea is a new Starbucks beverage idea for you to start your week off right. Any partner can submit a drink of the week: Be sure to include information on how it’s built and a photo of the full drink. Please include in your email that I have permission to use the #DrinkOfTheWeek, and it would be helpful to put #DrinkOfTheWeek in the subject line. You might even include why you like your drink! If I don’t already know you, please introduce yourself in the email.

This week’s drink of the week comes to us from Huntington Beach, California. It’s a very berry hibiscus Refresher no water, substitute black tea. Grant in Huntington Beach says, “I take the Very Berry Hibiscus concentrate and sub black tea instead of water. In addition I splash lemonade over the top and let a raw sugar dissolve over the drink. The result is tangy, sweet but not cloyingly so! The black tea really cuts the sweetness of the concentrate.

Sounds wonderful for the warm weather coming right around the corner!

I sent Grant a $10 Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room card as a thank you since I used his drink of the week submission.

Looking forward to more of your submissions for the Monday drink of the week column!
