There are few things better in this world than a new Starbucks drink, and the latest one might have you running to your nearest drive-thru—especially if you’re a fan of macchiatos. Now that spring is right around the corner (finally!), the menu is getting a major update, including a brand new drink that sounds straight-up dreamy. Oh, and by the way, it’s totally Ariana Grande-approved.

According to a press release from the coffee giant, on Tuesday, March 5th, Starbucks is introducing the Cloud Macchiato, a brand new, heavenly drink that features cold milk foam:

“Featuring a cloud of cold milk foam that’s light and smooth, topped with espresso shots and finished with signature caramel drizzle cross-hatch, Cloud Macchiato is silky, exhilarating, and will jumpstart your taste buds and take your afternoon by storm.”

And yes, this is why Grande has been mysteriously tweeting about Starbucks and clouds for the last couple of days, as evidenced by her adorable new photos sipping on the drink with her dogs as she wears the Starbucks apron. She’s a #StarbucksAmbassador, y’all.

Cute, right? Business Insider is also reporting that Starbucks will release a Grande-only playlist this week, so keep an eye out for that.

If you’re a fan of the original caramel macchiato, don’t worry—the new Cloud version comes in caramel, too, as well as cinnamon, and both are available hot or iced.

Starbucks is also bringing back iced and hot Matcha Green Tea Lattes, as well as a Matcha Green Tea Creme Frappucino, which makes sense, considering so many people love matcha. The company is also bringing back Cold Brew with Cascara Cold Foam, just in case your taste buds have been missing it.

If Grande is loving the Cloud Macchiato (and drinking it through an environmentally friendly straw, too), isn’t that reason enough to try it? The drink is available now, so if you’re in the mood to treat yourself, you can try it out starting today. And you might as well get a Grande while you’re at it. (We couldn’t resist.)
