Starbucks Japan recently announced that it will begin serving boozy new beverages called Wine Fragginos. While the chain already serves beer and wine at select locations, now the chain is experimenting with adding alcohol to some of its existing menu items.

One of the new Wine Fragginos consists of a drink made from blueberry wine sourced from the town of Yoichicho. Just like existing coffee-based Frappuccinos, all of the ingredients will be blended with ice and served cold. Due to the addition of alcohol, the boozy beverage will be priced at 900 yen or about $8 US.

While the company has no plans to bring the boozy Frappuccinos stateside anytime soon, the new menu addition demonstrates Starbucks' ongoing effort to capture the late-night crowd.
