Starbucks Customers Are Posting Photos Of Their Matcha Pink Drink Fails


Posted on

Two weeks ago, Instagram food account @DailyFoodFeed posted a photo of an off-menu Starbucks drink — dubbed the ~Matcha Pink Drink~ — and people quickly went wild for it.

According to @DailyFoodFeed, the drink is made with "3 parts traditional Pink Drink (Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk) on top of 1 part matcha coconut milk on the rocks." It's an ombré, pastel-colored beauty that many claim tastes like sorbet.


BuzzFeed Food reached out to Starbucks for comment and they had tips for ordering:

"If a customer would like to order a beverage that is not listed on our menu boards, we recommend they know the recipe so that their barista can handcraft the beverage perfectly for them," a Starbucks spokesperson told BuzzFeed Food. "For example, while we don’t offer an official Matcha Pink Drink, the green and pink layered beverage, if a customer would like to order this beverage, the easiest way is to ask for a Strawberry Acai Refresher with coconut milk instead of water, and layer it over coconut milk and matcha."
