Another Instagram user commented, "Mmm I’ll happy to pass because I feel like this will taste salty idk why 😂."

Yet another person snarked, "but they still can’t bring raspberry syrup back," while someone else pointed out, "just making mocktails at this point 😭."

Other Starbucks lovers seemed intrigued by the idea, with one commenting, "I love spicy sweet or spicy fruity! I agree with another comment tho a mango variation would have been ideal."

Someone else wrote, "Idk that strawberry w/a likkle shot a tequila might be something🤭."
