Get ready: The most photogenic  pick-me-up drink is here.

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:
