Though they are popular on social media, you’ll need to know the exact recipe to order your drink of choice.

Though Starbucks has come out with a number of new Frappuccinos for the summer, it seems that a series of pastel-colored secret menu items are winning over Starbucks-lovers.

It began with the Pink Drink, a Strawberry Acai Refresher made with coconut milk instead of water, which has been tagged on Instagram over 120,000 times at time of publication. The Pink Drink was followed by Purple Drink and Orange Drink, and, most recently, a Green and Blue Drink have joined the secret menu lineup.

The Orange Drink, Foodbeast reports, was invented by an Orange County, California, Starbucks store manager by the name of Eric Olson. It is made with orange mango juice and two scoops of vanilla bean powder, poured over ice and topped with coconut milk.

The Purple Drink is a Passion Iced Tea with soy milk, vanilla syrup, and blackberries; and the Blue Drink is the Purple Drink without blackberries.


The Green Drink is a Black Tea with matcha powder and coconut milk.
