Long known exclusively as a purveyor of coffee on a global scale, Starbucks is branching out.

There’s a new thing on the menu and it's not another kind of coffee or frappucinos – it's a “wine fraggino".

A “wine fraggino” is a new drink where the caffeine is replaced by a specialty blueberry wine derived from Hokkaido, Japan’s second largest island.

Starbucks in Tokyo has just launched "Starbucks Evenings", where coffee fans in the world’s largest city can gulp down this new house cocktail.

Starbucks Japan is clearly going more upmarket, offering the likes of cheese boards and tarts on the menu as well.
