Starbucks' "pink purple" drink is a carnival in a cup
Only the biggest fans of Starbucks know about the secret drinks, like the two-toned unicorn beverage called the Matcha Pink Drink that has taken over our dreams and our Instagrams. The latest off-menu drink that has us crying tears of joy is the Pink Purple Drink, which looks just as gorgeous and colorful as the Matcha Pink Drink.
Put most simply, this new rainbow Starbucks libation is a combination of the Pink Drink and the Purple Drink. The instructions posted in an Instagram post say you have to ask the barista to mix match and coconut milk first, then add ice and “slowly add the traditional pink drink to make this cool ombré affect.”
Doesn’t it make you feel like you’re in a Disney cartoon?! Real talk, though, it does take a bit of extra work to make, so be nice to your barista when you ask them to do it — and be sure to tip them. If they’re willing to do it, the reward is well worth the effort. It apparently tastes as delicious as it looks.
Daily Food Feed gave us the inside scoop on how to order this ombre drink. They also explain that the Pink Drink is a strawberry acai refresher with coconut milk, and the Purple Drink is Passion Ice Tea with soy milk, vanilla syrup, and blackberries. Honestly, that combination sounds too good to be true. And look how beautiful they are.
We have a feeling that just holding this delightful drink in our hands would make our day infinitely better. Time for a Starbucks break. Who’s coming with us?
