The New Starbucks Pink Drink Tastes Like Strawberries and Springtime
After years of being relegated to the off-screen “secret menu,” the famous, fan-invented Pink Drink is now an official Starbucks offering!
This impossibly pink drink is coffee- and dairy-free, and made with Strawberry Acai Refreshers (with “accents of passion fruit and acai”) mixed with coconut milk and topped with a scoop of strawberries. The drink represents the colors and flavors of warmer weather, and we’re all for it!
“We’re thrilled that the beloved Pink Drink is joining the Starbucks menu, just in time for the warmer spring months,” said Vivienne Long, Starbucks vice president for U.S. Retail Beverages. “This delicious and refreshing drink is a celebration of our customers’ and baristas’ creativity and is just one of the 170,000 ways we craft beverages to meet each person’s unique taste preferences.”
Of course, since Starbucks made the official announcement, people have been pretty excited:

This is the second drink in the past two weeks that Starbucks has upgraded from the secret menu. The Medicine Ball, which was promoted in May, is said by some to have the ability to cure the common cold.
