This week's Frappuccino of the Week is the "Polar London Fog," submitted by Aileen in British Columbia, Canada. Aileen wrote, " I love asian milk teas and was wondering if one could be made into a Frappuccino..." That's where the inspiration for this Frappuccino came from. I tried this myself too. First off, you have to like Earl Grey tea to like this Frappuccino. It's such an interesting idea that I'm featuring it here, but there are some caveats for this Frappuccino creation. First off, be aware that this will be an expensive drink. Next, don't spring this on a busy store. Go to a store with friendly baristas during a quiet time in the store. And tip well.

Here’s how you submit a Frappuccino of the Week (if I use your submission, I’ll mail you a $10 Roastery Card as a thank you): First off, be sure to include a high resolution image of your drink. The Frappuccino should be full and not yet consumed. Include all information about the drink recipe or drink build. I want to make it easy for others to order your drink. Include a statement that you took the photo of the Frappuccino and that you’re giving me permission to use it – entry into the Frappuccino of the Week category presumes that I may freely use your photograph on this site. Please introduce yourself and let me know if you are a customer or a partner. If you’re a partner, I’d love to know if you are a store manager, a coffee master, and/ or some small fun detail about your career – even your favorite coffee. Of course, you don't have to tell me all that, but it would be nice to know some fun detail about you! Send your Frappuccino drink idea, image, drink build instructions, and all relevant information via email to Melody at StarbucksMelody dot com. If you want the $10 Starbucks card, I’ll need your mailing address. Please send the image of the Frappuccino with your email about the Frappuccino - please don't send them as two separate emails.
