The Truth About Starbucks’ Pink Drink

In case you’ve been living under a rock for some time, let me fill you in real quick:

Starbucks has a secret menu; that’s no so secret.

This secret menu has been created by enthusiastic baristas and dedicated customers who have customized some of the most popular drinks by adding a special twist.

The latest secret drink that practically everyone has tried (I’m sorry if you haven’t) has been dubbed “pink drink.” I got my hands on the Barbie pink drink and what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t share my honest thoughts? After all, it is #nationalbestfriendday

Overall, it was just okay. I actually didn’t even finish the cup (it was Short by the way.) Yes I know, Starbucks enthusiasts please don’t come after me! But in all honesty, I was expecting more. The taste can be compared to a flavored milky tea or a much lighter version of a strawberry shake. Don’t get me wrong, it was pretty refreshing, and I probably will be getting a few more, but more so for the look of it than anything else.

While most people are still trying to figure out the ingredients, it’s actually pretty surprising how simple the drink really is.

  • Strawberry Acai Refresher
  • Coconut milk instead of water
  • Handful of strawberries or blackberries or both!

The “pink drink” has sent massive waves throughout social media and has everyone in a complete state of frenzy. Simply search the hashtag #pinkdrink and you’ll be scrolling through hundreds of posts with the bubblegum colored drink on display.

It’s no doubt that this drink will be a summertime staple, and it doesn’t hurt that the cup is definitely Snapchat worthy don’t you think?
