The Pink Starbucks Drink That Has Reddit's Undivided Attention

Starbucks has been the topic of social media conversations like a trillion times. Probably more, with its more than 2 million followers on Instagram and TikTok. There are bloggers devoted to the coffee and social media accounts constantly sharing hacks for ordering at Starbucks. And we are still talking about how substituting half of the pumpkin spice pumps with white mocha creates a Cinderella latte. No, Starbucks, we are not done with you just yet.

Recently, a Redditor shared a picture of a Starbucks cup with a bright pink-colored drink with a small brown dot in the center. Apparently, as the caption explained, it was a pink latte with a shot of espresso in it, which the Redditor described as "incredibly disgusting." This spiked a conversation, where one user compared the mysterious pink drink to other viral coffees saying that "most of the TikTok drinks that look neat are too." But most disagreed, stating that the pink latte probably tastes gross, like the Starbucks coffee drink that TikTok can't get behind

Above all, users were wondering what the pink drink was made of, where did this curious color come from, and all the attention was kept on guessing how it tastes. The Redditor never did reveal the ingredients for the pink drink.

The mysterious pink drink from Starbucks might be acai-based

"Hot latte with strawberry purée?" asked one Redditor, but the original poster kept insisting that the secret for the pink hot latte dies with her. One thing is for sure — it definitely has milk because it's called a latte. According to Starbucks' online menu, this pink drink is a beverage called a Strawberry Açaí Refresher beverage, which has strawberry acai as a base, hints of passion fruit, and is served with coconut milk. It's featured in Starbucks' secret menu, along with other colored drinks. Once, there was a similar pink drink sold in Starbucks Japan, as reported by Cosmpolitan, but was a tea blend with orange, strawberry, peach, and apple served with milk foam — also vibrant pink but not the same taste.

As with all Starbucks drinks, you can customize the pink drink with the size of your preference, sweetener, milk, or add a shot of espresso to it — although the Redditor insisted it tasted bad with the extra coffee. Know that this drink does have caffeine from the "natural green coffee flavor" it has in the mix, as Coffee Affection notes.

For all curious users, this pink drink is one you'll just have to try for yourself.
