A dragon of course! You heard it here: Starbucks lowkey created a Dragon Frappuccino in addition to the enormously popular Unicorn Frappuccino . And there’s nothing that proves this more than the fact they literally ran out of Unicorn ingredients at some stores.

Another day, another new and unique Starbucks Frappuccino to try (photos below). In order to appease their caffeine-addicted, unicorn-hunting customers, a few creative baristas stepped up to the plate--er, grande sized mug--and came up with the Dragon Frappuccino as a replacement to the

I'm confused by the new Starbucks Dragon Frappuccino. Not on an existential level but a practical one. The Starbucks Dragon Frappuccino popped up on Instagram over the weekend, and the drink itself looks gorgeous-a pale green beverage with swirls of bright purple along the sides that somehow seems more natural than the now-infamous Unicorn Frappuccino, yet still magical. But if you've been wondering what's in a Dragon Frappuccino and how to order a Dragon Frappuccino at your local Starbucks, you're kind of out of luck. That's because no one really seems to know what's in a Dragon Frappuccino, least of all me.

I can now literally be the Mother of Dragons ! Here I go being all honest again. I admit that the only times I ever drank Starbucks anything was when I was sitting in a Barnes and Noble acting all book-lover cliché sipping So what ingredients are in this Dragon Frappuccino and how do you order one?

Since it's not an official menu item, though, thirsty customers are wondering how to order a Dragon Frappuccino at Starbucks . Well, it could literally be just about anything. A Starbucks spokesperson tells Bustle, "In addition to the beverage options listed on our menu boards, there are

And that's frustrating, in part because I fancy myself as something of an expert in the Starbucks secret menu. (I should just add here as a disclaimer that the Starbucks secret menu is not an actual thing administered by Starbucks. Instead, it's a series of customizations you can make to existing menu items to create your own "secret" drink.) I generally pride myself in my ability to look at a Starbucks drink on Instagram and reverse engineer it, based on the photo's caption and what I know about the regular Starbucks. But the Dragon Frappuccino left me scratching my head.

The main ingredient in the Starbucks Dragon Frappuccino is a regular green tea Frappuccino with vanilla bean powder, and that makes sense to me because it's green. But I had no idea how to order the purple swirl. Most folks are describing as, "some berry cup swirl," seemingly based on an Instagram post from Varin Thorn, and though that sounds straightforward, from what I understand, there is no such thing as a "berry swirl" on the regular Starbucks menu.

Starbucks Just Quietly Dropped Another New Frappuccino When We Weren't Looking

  Starbucks Just Quietly Dropped Another New Frappuccino When We Weren't Looking Lately it's been all rainbow this, unicorn that, and over the past few weeks, Starbucks has been deep in to this colorful food trend. People all over lined up for the Unicorn Frappuccino, and the some baristas have gone rogue and invented their own vibrant drinks like the Pink Pegasus, Dragon Frappuccino, and most recently, the Mermaid Frappuccino. While we were all distracted by the bright colors of these limited time Frapps, Starbucks was quietly concocting a brand new one that would go in the complete opposite direction. This morning, the coffee chain introduced a drink with a dark side called the Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino.

The closest I could get to a "berry swirl" on the Starbucks menu was raspberry syrup, but the raspberry syrup wouldn't give a drink that distinctive pink and purple shock of color. That's because the raspberry syrup is clear, a fact that was confirmed on the phone by a barista from a Starbucks in Brooklyn. I asked the barista if there were any purple or berry syrups on the menu that would give the drink a swirl, and she said there wasn't. (She also hadn't heard of the Dragon Frappuccino, which, like, bless her.)

So what is the so-called "berry cup swirl" that gives the Dragon Frappuccino its magic? It seems like its an ingredient from the Unicorn Frappuccino, repurposed to create a new drink. That checks out given the origin story of the Dragon Frappuccino. According to Today, baristas at one store created this new Starbucks secret menu item after they started running out of the ingredients to make the now-infamous Unicorn Frappuccino.

So don't walk into your Starbucks asking for a Dragon Frappuccino. You won't get one. You cannot order a Dragon Frappuccino from Starbucks because there is no such thing. Even if you go in and ask for a "berry swirl," you'll just confuse everyone because there is no so-called berry swirl on the regular menu-or secret menu, for that matter. If you do order a Dragon Frappuccino, don't get mad when your barista can't make it. This alternative to the Unicorn Frappuccino used the same ingredients as the original, and honestly, it's not your barista's fault that unicorns-and dragons-are fleeting.
