Starbucks Pink Drink Copycat HERO

Several years ago, the internet was abuzz with news of a brand new drink from Starbucks. Actually this drink had apparently existed on the “secret Starbucks menu” for awhile, but Starbucks was finally making it official. The “Pink Drink” became a permanent fixture on the regular Starbucks menu. This cold, sweet (but not super sweet) drink is a fruity blend of hibiscus and strawberry. It gets a cloudy look from the addition of coconut milk.

We tried a pink drink the month that it rolled out and it is still one of my favorite summer drinks. (Topped only by the Strawberry Acai Lemonade Refresher!)

It turns out, a pink drink copycat is pretty easy to make at home! Making the pink drink is also a LOT more budget friendly than purchasing it at Starbucks.

Will this taste EXACTLY like a Starbucks Pink Drink?

Well, it’s close. But it’s not an exact match. Here’s why: the main ingredient in a Pink Drink is a proprietary blend that Starbucks does not sell separately. The main ingredient in the pink drink is Strawberry Açaí Refreshers… and you can’t buy that via powder, unfortunately.
