I gotta hand it to you Starbucks! You definitely know how to slay the marketing game. Your marketing skills have the ability to drive people completely insane over absolutely nothing! Last winter you had people flipping out about the color of their cup. Now with summer right around the corner you're at your crazy antics again & this time you have the whole Instagram world going bonkers over your latest viral phenomenon, secret menu item #PinkDrink.
Just to get those of you that don't live on Insta up to speed with the #PinkDrink craze, the hashtag is currently at 95,404 photos! Yes, this drink is definitely
So I'm sure at this point you're wondering what exactly makes up the #InstaFamous #PinkDrink ? This totally fabulous, girly looking drink is really just a simple drink hack which swaps out water with coconut milk in a Strawberry Acai Refresher tea. Unfortunately at this time you can't make the water/coconut milk swap via app, so you will have to order in person.
Being a fan of all things pink & refreshers being a summertime favorite of mine, my daughter and I headed to our local bucks to give this famous drinkie a try!
We were hoping with the drink’s social media popularity the barista would instantly know what we were talking about, but living in a small town I should of known! Only one of the baristas had a clue as to what I was asking for & it took me pulling out my phone before the dude was like o the Internet drink lol. I guess I sometimes forget people not living in the blogging/social media world take a tad bit longer to pick up on trends.
The good news for those of you in Chautauqua County NY, you can now order your #PinkDrink with ease at the Jamestown location since I broke the ice & got our local baristas up to speed on the latest Insta trend. Someone had to be the crazy internet lady & who better than me to play the role lol.
The hype is definitely real folks! Not only is this drink absolutely fabulous to look at, it taste like a pink Starburst. This drink taste like heaven & is definitely the definition of deliciousness if you ask me! This drink now earns it's spot as my number one summertime drink. I have had 3 in the last two days & I'm sure I will be making a Starbucks run for another on the way to pick my daughter up from school tomorrow. My love for this drink might make me the most basic girl to ever live, but hey, at least I own up to it right?
