(WTNH)– With four days until the first day of spring, Starbucks is debuting a limited edition Cherry Frappuccino.

The popular chain is showcasing their Cherry Blossom Frappuccino. The drink will be available March 20th, the first day of spring all across the United States.

The frappuccino is a blend of strawberries and cream with white chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and topped with a matcha drizzle.

The frappuccino was inspired by the Japanese sakura, the country’s national flower that symbolizes spring.

Starbucks stores in Japan have offered a version of the drink since 2010, this will be the first time the drink is available in U.S. Starbucks stores.
