Copycat Starbucks Paradise Drink

This Copycat Starbucks Paradise Drink is a taste of the tropics in every sip. Combining pineapple juice, passionfruit juice, this drink makes you feel like that pool you’re floating in is actually the ocean or that your backyard might be just a block or two away from the beach!

I mentioned in a previous post that I love Starbucks drinks, and this time of year, I always love any fruity drink. That’s especially true if said fruits are tropical. That’s why I decided to make my own copycat version of the paradise drink from Starbucks. This recipe tastes just like the original, and it makes it easy for me to make one drink or a dozen. And frankly, I’d break the bank if I tried to buy enough drinks for a crowd of family and friends!
