Starbucks pink drink

by Marina Avraam |

If you haven't already heard the news, the much-loved and much raved out Starbucks 'pink drink' has finally made its way to the UK, and people are excited.

The famous drink went viral in the US a few years ago thanks to the sweet, refreshing and creamy taste that is perfect for any time of the year, and it just keeps coming back. Hundreds of people documented their experience of trying out the drink while encouraging others to do the same along the way.

The Pink Coconut Refresha is part of the new Refresha range, and will only be available for a limited time. Customers can pick up this delicious drink from July 1 in Starbucks stores across the UK, along with the Strawberry Açai and Cool Lime flavours. The pink drink differs slightly from the traditional US recipe, but we bet it's still just as mouth-watering.

Drink lovers can also pink up the Pink Coconut Starbucks Refresha from Just Eat until 30 June.

Thanks to how simple and straightforward the pink drink recipe is, you can make it without leaving the comfort of your home. All you need is a few ingredients and you're good to go.
