While Starbucks is currently treating North American consumers to its S'mores and Caramel Waffle Cone Frappuccinos, the chain is offering a tasty new Key Lime Frappuccino in select Asian countries. With summer just around the corner, the new drink provides a delicious way to beat the heat.

The icy new drink puts a tasty twist on Starbucks' popular Green Tea Frappuccino by adding a touch of lime. The Key Lime Frappuccino consists of lime sauce mixed with matcha powder, milk, ice and graham cracker crumbs. The drink is then topped with whipped cream and a sprinkling of graham cracker pieces. The new drink is available in several countries, including China, Singapore and Indonesia.

The addition of the new Frappuccino demonstrates Starbucks' attempt to diversify its menu, while still appealing to regional preferences by using ingredients such as matcha.
