The Starbucks Pink Drink is the coffee chain’s fake-it-til-you-make-it drink. The rags to riches drink. The, “if you build it, they will come” drink. And no, we’re not being completely dramatic here. The Pink Drink was originally a “secret menu” customer creation after it took off on Instagram in 2016.
The Starbucks Pink Drink uses the Strawberry Açaí Starbucks Refresher base. But the barista adds coconut milk, instead of water, and tops it off with fresh strawberries, blackberries, or both to add texture, color, and flavor.
According to the official description, this drink tastes like a “fruity and refreshing sip of spring.” People compare it to a lighter version of strawberry milk, the yogurt-based Asian beverage Calpico, or even strawberry Starbursts.
