In this instructable I will teach you how to make one of my favorite Starbucks drinks that isn't a coffee. It's called the "Pink Drink." Last year one of my brothers introduced me to the Starbucks Pink Drink (I believe it's on their secret menu) and ever since then I have been hooked! So I decided to share my version of this sweet refreshing drink, I hope you give it a try! Follow the step by step guide below to make your own pink drink.

Step 1: Ingredients
- 4 Bags Hibiscus Tea (I used Tazo Passion) with 4 cups of water
- ½ C White Grape Juice
- 1 ½ C Coconut Milk
- ¼ C Raw Sugar
- 1 C Fresh Strawberries
- 1 ½ C Freeze Dried Strawberries
Step 2: Add Boiling Water to Teabags
For this step I used an electric kettle to boil my water. If you boil the water on a stove top then you would be adding the tea bags to the boiling pot. Either method works of course.
Step 3: Steep the Tea
Steep the 4 teabags in the water for 5 minutes (or according to your package instructions).
Step 4: Add Sugar & Stir
After the tea is done steeping, discard the tea bags. Add ¼ C raw sugar or cane sugar to the tea and give it a gentle stir until the sugar is fully dissolved.
Step 5: Combine Ingredients
Next add the sweetened tea, grape juice, coconut milk, fresh strawberries and freeze-dried strawberries into the blender.
Step 6: Blend!
Blend until everything is combined and smooth.
Step 7: Pour the Pink Drink
Add the Pink Drink into a glass or glasses that have been filled with ice and garnish with extra freeze-dried strawberries. Give it a final touch by adding a straw.
Step 8: Enjoy Your Secret Menu Item!
You now have a delicious Starbucks secret menu copycat pink drink so don't hesitate, dig right in!
