Ahead of the sultry, dog days of summer, Starbucks is launching a pair of iced energy drinks to keep thirsty customers hydrated, refreshed and on their game.

Starting Tuesday, baristas can concoct a Melon Burst Iced Energy beverage, which Starbucks describes as "refreshing melon and cucumber flavors balanced with bright Passion Tango tea, poured over ice."
