Starbucks Copycat Pink Drink




About: Hey y'all! My name is Lydia and I want to share my passion for cooking/baking with everyone!

Hey y'all,

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.

Or view the video tutorial here:

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!

    Sounds ab-So-Lutely Fab.

    Question. Why use fresh AND freeze dried strawbs? Does it make a difference to the texture or flavour?

    You don't really need to put the freeze dried ones in the blender, the fresh ones add color. After it's blended you can add the freeze dried ones that's how Starbucks does it. I just feel like adding freeze dried in the blender possibly helps the texture but probably not =)
