Starbucks’ Secret Purple Drink Is the Star of Instagram



Is your venti s’mores Frappuccino, grande cold brew with vanilla crème or tall black tea lemonade not quite doing the trick when it comes to delicious and Instagram-worthy drinks? Fear not! From the Starbuck’s “secret menu” that gave the internet the Pink Drink, now gives us the Purple Drink. Instagram has turned purple with all of the photos of people enjoying the iced Purple Drink on these hot summer days. According to On Air With Ryan Seacrest, the drink comes from the “secret menu” — which you can find online — containing a list of over 200 drink recipes that simply don’t fit on the store menu boards. The Purple Drink is make by mixing passion fruit iced tea, soy milk, vanilla syrup and blackberries. If soy milk isn’t your style, you can substitute coconut milk and get a lighter, lavender drink. Either way, it is bound to be tasty and refreshing.

Got myself the #purpledrink 🖖🏼#starbucks

If you happened to miss the Pink Drink, it is made by combining Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk and strawberries. You can also find drinks such as the Samoa Cookie Frappuccino, Iced Raspberry Latte and the Superfruit Tea.

Which are you — Team Pink Drink or Team Purple Drink?

Yeah I think I’ll just stick with boba from now on 😕
