Simon Vuong, beverage developer for Starbucks, said in a feature story on the company’s official website, “We started out thinking about summer moments like hanging out by the pool and having a barbecue with friends. We have never had a blue beverage, but when we first created the recipe, the color really captured the feeling we were going for – reminiscent of long, summer days and bright skies for everyone to enjoy.”

“We started with fruit pieces, but we wanted something even bolder. So, we thought, ‘Let’s put fruit-flavored pearls in the beverage and try it out.’ It’s very fun the way it delivers the flavor when it pops in your mouth,” Vuong added.
