I gotta hand it to you Starbucks! You definitely know how to slay the marketing game. Your marketing skills have the ability to drive people completely insane over absolutely nothing! Last winter you had people flipping out about the color of their cup. Now with summer right around the corner you're at your crazy antics again & this time you have the whole Instagram world going bonkers over your latest viral phenomenon, secret menu item #PinkDrink.
Just to get those of you that don't live on Insta up to speed with the #PinkDrink craze, the hashtag is currently at 95,404 photos! Yes, this drink is definitely
So I'm sure at this point you're wondering what exactly makes up the #InstaFamous #PinkDrink ? This totally fabulous, girly looking drink is really just a simple drink hack which swaps out water with coconut milk in a Strawberry Acai Refresher tea. Unfortunately at this time you can't make the water/coconut milk swap via app, so you will have to order in person.
Being a fan of all things pink & refreshers being a summertime favorite of mine, my daughter and I headed to our local bucks to give this famous drinkie a try!
We were hoping with the drink’s social media popularity the barista would instantly know what we were talking about, but living in a small town I should of known! Only one of the baristas had a clue as to what I was asking for & it took me pulling out my phone before the dude was like o the Internet drink lol. I guess I sometimes forget people not living in the blogging/social media world take a tad bit longer to pick up on trends.
The good news for those of you in Chautauqua County NY, you can now order your #PinkDrink with ease at the Jamestown location since I broke the ice & got our local baristas up to speed on the latest Insta trend. Someone had to be the crazy internet lady & who better than me to play the role lol.
The hype is definitely real folks! Not only is this drink absolutely fabulous to look at, it taste like a pink Starburst. This drink taste like heaven & is definitely the definition of deliciousness if you ask me! This drink now earns it's spot as my number one summertime drink. I have had 3 in the last two days & I'm sure I will be making a Starbucks run for another on the way to pick my daughter up from school tomorrow. My love for this drink might make me the most basic girl to ever live, but hey, at least I own up to it right?
Have you tried the latest Starbucks Phenomenon known as the #PinkDrink ?

The fact that it is pink would make me want to try it! But I would not like the strawberry pieces in the drink (a little weird I know lol) My family, especially my husband, would probably LOVE this!
6/8/2016 08:47:35 pm
I was wondering this myself. I know a lot of their drinks you can ask for no sugar / non fat.
6/8/2016 01:06:55 pm
Lovely post and I doubt my smaller city would know of this either..I must get one!!
6/8/2016 01:16:43 pm
Well, darn. I was just there today getting a caramel frappucino. Had I known about this cool pink drink, I would have gotten that instead.
6/8/2016 03:38:59 pm
I have heard of this but I haven't tried it. I'm kind of afraid I won't like it. But maybe they can do me a taste right?
6/8/2016 03:51:14 pm
That looks so tasty. The Starbucks marketing team is on point. They always seem to pick the winning strategy.
6/8/2016 04:51:33 pm
I think this means I need to run out and get one now! I love Starbucks going to have to pick one of these up soon!
6/8/2016 04:55:29 pm
I have only ever had two drinks at Starbucks, so I feel like I really miss out. This looks delicious and the fact its pink makes it so much more appealing! My fave colour!
OMG, I've been wanting to try the PinkDrink since I first saw it on IG! I'm wondering if I can navigate the language here in Saudi well enough to tell them how to make it! No one has been able to actually describe what it tastes like but the fact that you said it tastes like a pink starburst makes me even that much more excited to try it!
6/8/2016 07:35:14 pm
OMG it's actually so sad that I've never heard of this.. Oh well now I really REALLY want to try it. I hope this is actually a thing in the Philippines.
6/8/2016 08:10:43 pm
I love Starbucks hacks. I haven't had this one as I am not a big fan of strawberry flavored milky things. But I have made a lot of other hacks over the years. Starbucks is a lot of fun.
6/8/2016 08:17:38 pm
I am not a big Starbucks fan...I know, a rarity. You see, I can't stand the smell of coffee, so it is difficult for me to go into a Starbucks. I like pink things though, so I could always try this at the drive up!

I have never heard of it until I read this, but I don't go to Starbucks, so that is probably why :) Glad you liked it.
6/8/2016 08:57:48 pm
Well now you have my son wanting to try this. He loves trying new drinks.
6/8/2016 10:23:03 pm
We tried the pink drink yesterday.... let me say, it was Absoflippingawesome! I can't wait to go get another one tomorrow!
6/8/2016 10:53:31 pm
I have only been to Starbucks twice so I will probably not be ordering the adorable pink drink. I know, I am so 'un-cool'. Haha. It looks good, though!
6/8/2016 11:28:22 pm
I would love to try this drink. That is a lot of pink drink photos.
6/8/2016 11:33:06 pm
I have not heard of this! I have no idea how I haven't LOL! I am off to Starbucks tomorrow, so....
6/8/2016 11:47:17 pm
I haven't heard of this yet believe it our not! It is so fun to have a pink drink for sure!
6/9/2016 01:31:02 am
I keep seeing this drink everywhere but I haven't tried it myself. It really looks refreshing and when I learned that it has acai in it, that totally makes sense. Thanks for sharing your experience!
6/9/2016 06:10:36 am
I have to agree that Starbucks does indeed have a great strategy for getting sales. Anything pink tends to bring in the women. I will have to try this Starbucks pink drink. It sounds amazing. Thanks for shairng the drink.
6/9/2016 07:25:36 am
Ooh glad this one is made from coconut milk, being dairy free means I can drink it. It sounds delicious and I'm sure the Chataqua community thanks you for the service of getting the baristas on trend. :)
6/9/2016 07:35:29 am
This looks so delicious! Now I just need to visit Starbucks!
6/9/2016 08:22:25 am
I've seen the "Pink Drink" every where lately but have been super skeptical. I might just have to bite the bullet and go give it a try!
6/9/2016 09:52:54 am
I love that it's so pink and summery! I'm a big fan of tea.
6/9/2016 10:51:13 am
I would want to try it simply because it's pink! Haha! But I'm glad to hear that it tastes as delicious as it looks. I guess I'm going to Starbucks today!
6/9/2016 11:43:44 am
Oh how I miss having a Starbucks near by! Their frozen drinks are amazing! I totally agree that their marketing tactics are fabulous!
6/9/2016 11:52:47 am
If only I could have coconut milk, I'd be all over this drink. Strawberry chunks in a cold drink are my favorite and I'm so sad I can't try this! It looks delicious though.
6/9/2016 11:59:38 am
This drink looks so good! I can't wait to go on break so I can snag one and recharge for the rest of my afternoon! Two of my favorite things...strawberries and the tea...with the added bonus that it is pink! Love it! Thanks for sharing!
6/9/2016 01:13:15 pm
I love everything pink! I will definitely try this cool pink drink from SB, looks delicious.
6/9/2016 01:53:48 pm
I would love to give the Pink Drink a try. I love the idea of making the swap with the coconut milk.
6/9/2016 02:09:32 pm
This definitely looks like a great drink for us girls!
6/9/2016 02:47:29 pm
I'm going to the city this week so I hope Starbucks have the pink drink! Totally want to try it!
6/9/2016 02:48:13 pm
This looks like a refreshing drink that I could really use right now to quench my thirst and de-stress me, because I am going through a lot right now!
6/9/2016 02:54:38 pm
Wonder if they'd know what it is here. I think I shall have to go and see. :)
6/9/2016 04:33:54 pm
This drink looks beautiful and sounds like it's delicious! I thought maybe it was a strawberry-banana smoothie, which is one of my favorite drinks to make at home.
6/9/2016 07:06:28 pm
I shall not go to Starbucks. I shall not go to Starbucks. Lol! I'll probably stop by to try it out this weekend. I actually hadn't heard of this one.
6/9/2016 07:24:07 pm
So.... We will be having a #pinkdrink soon and catch up on the latest?? I have to try this now because it sure does look fabulous!!
6/9/2016 08:47:53 pm
Mmm that looks so delicious and Summery. I wish we had a Starbucks closer, I would be buying these everyday!
6/9/2016 08:50:40 pm
It looks so delicious and refreshing! I have heard so many great things about it, but haven't tried it myself. You're right, it's so girly and pink :)
6/9/2016 08:55:25 pm
I have never been a starbucks coffee drinker since it is so expensive but I have been super curious about these crazy Pink Drinks and might just have to try one since they look so good!
6/9/2016 09:12:16 pm
That looks fun to drink! I am going to have to go to Starbucks and try this one out.
6/9/2016 09:44:57 pm
I order the same 2 drinks at Starbucks, but now that it's getting warmer, I may venture out to try something new :)
6/10/2016 12:12:32 am
I will definitely be trying this soon. It looks just delicious!
6/10/2016 04:47:20 am
It sounds delicious!! I have heard of this drink but never tried it.
6/10/2016 06:38:41 am
Oh, the first thing that comes to my mind when I hear Starbucks is coffee. which i dont drink. So naturally I have never been to Starbucks till date. But. . . this #PinkDrink is a good reason to go to starbucks at least once while i'm in Manchester cause in India there are no Starbucks.
6/10/2016 02:44:58 pm
I haven't tried the Starbucks Pink Drink yet but it does look delicious. The Pink Drink looks like the perfect summertime drink.
6/10/2016 03:09:43 pm
I am a starbucks fanatic but yet i still havent tried this. what is wrong with me?! LOL def will try it soon though!
6/10/2016 05:12:30 pm
I hadn't even heard of the pink drink and I was just at Starbucks today!
6/11/2016 01:23:43 am
I haven't been too adventurous with Starbucks actually. I stick to my usual Cafe Vanilla Frappuccino Venti. I get this so much that the staff knows my order when I walk in. Thanks for sharing, looks yummy.
6/12/2016 07:50:12 am
I would devour these in no time at all. I love strawberries especially in my beverages so this would be right up my alley.
6/12/2016 09:19:28 pm
I've heard of this drink, but I didnt know what was in it stores yet. It sounds delicious!!
6/13/2016 12:14:01 am
Summer here means we are always looking for cold and refreshing drinks. My youngest loves strawberries! And pink! We'll be headed here this week :)
6/13/2016 05:33:54 am
One of my most loved colors is pink. I would want to try this if I ever go to Starbucks.
6/14/2016 01:24:00 pm
Awesome! I love Starbucks but don't have a summer drink. I am going to try it. I love your description about tasting like a starburst!
6/14/2016 06:07:04 pm
