Starbucks’ new secret menu item called the Pink Drink is taking social media by storm. Made with a Strawberry Açai Refresher that subs coconut milk for water and your choice of strawberry or blackberry pieces, the drink boasts a creamy baby pink hue. It’s bursting with a fruity, tangy flavor and full of antioxidants and caffeine that increase your energy level, but not your waistline.

This drink is the perfect compliment for all those summer instas to come. Best of all, we figured out how to recreate it at home. So if you hate standing on line at Starbucks, and who doesn’t, now you can be your own barista and get your pink on all summer long.
