A Starbucks Pink Drink Rug Is Popping Off On Instagram

Step aside, Starbucks baristas. There's a new Pink Drink maker in town, and her name is Madeline Ronzoni, a.k.a. the business owner and content creator behind the popular brand Happy Rugs. Known best for her viral social media videos in which she tufts unique and colorful rugs, the artist recently found some inspiration in the Seattle-based coffee chain's secret-menu-turned-permanent beverage for one of her latest videos, which Starbucks shared to its official Instagram page last week.

Captioned "Living in a Pink (Drink) state of mind," the March 14 upload starts off with a shot of Ronzoni standing in front of her framed rug template with her own pink drink in hand before cutting to several clips of the artist tufting the various elements of the beverage that Starbucks fanatics all know and love. The artist then glues down the back of the rug and flips it over to shave off the excess yarn before showing off the finished product, which comes complete with ice cubes, strawberries, and the coffee chain's iconic, emerald green straw.

With over 37,800 likes as of this writing, it's safe to say that Starbies lovers are almost as obsessed with Ronzoni's Pink Drink rug as they are with the actual drink itself. "I THINK I WOULD ACTUALLY BUY THIS," one person wrote in the comments section. "I'm going to take this as a sign to still get my weekly pink drink," another quipped – though some Instagrammers had another Starbucks product on their minds.

This Pink Drink rug isn't the only thing that has Starbucks customers popping off

Even if you're loyal to one of the other popular coffee chains, you have to admit that Madeline Ronzoni's handmade, Starbucks-inspired Pink Drink rug is pretty cool. But even as impressive as her colorful creation was, it wasn't enough to distract Starbucks fans from the rumors that the chain would be canceling its highly popular raspberry syrup.

The news left several people up in arms, so much so that a number of Instagrammers took to the comments section of the java shops Pink Drink rug post to beg for its return. "Please reconsider your decision on removing raspberry syrup," an Instagram user wrote in a comment, while another said they were "shocked, disappointed and angry" about the decision. Others even threatened to boycott the chain if the rumors were true, and we hate to be the bearers of bad news, but they sadly are.

"As we continue evaluating product performance, Raspberry syrup will be discontinued by the end of March to make room for new innovations, like developing new syrup flavors," the chain said in response to a number of Instagram comments. This means the end for drinks like the Raspberry Chiffon White Mocha, Raspberry Lemonade, and Raspberry Cheesecake Mocha Frappucino, but on the plus side, at least everything needed to make the Pink Drink is remaining intact.
