As we brace for these last few warm days of September, its time to find a signature drink to bridge the gap between August and pumpkin spice latte season.
Enter the violet drink – the new secret menu item youre going to see popping up all over Instagram.
The Instagrammable drink is like a combo of the infamous pink drink that was mega-popular last year and the purple drink.
The purple drink, in case you didnt know, is made by asking for a Passion Iced Tea made with soy milk, with a shot of vanilla syrup and a scoop of blackberries. As the name would suggest, its a lovely purple shade.
The pink drink, meanwhile, is a Strawberry Acai Refresher made with coconut milk, with a scoop of strawberries. Its pink.
The violet drink is a mashup of the two in terms of colour, but not in its ingredients. Like those hyped up drinks before it, its also vegan.
To make the violet drink, you simply need to ask for a Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher made with coconut milk and ice and finished with a scoop of blackberries.
The end result is a pleasingly creamy, violet drink that tastes as delightful as it looks.
And for once, this is a secret menu hack you can actually get in the UK. Starbucks stores in the UK dont technically stock the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher, but they do have something called a Shaken Hibiscus Infusion and a Blackberry Mojito Green Tea. Just ask for a mixture of both, made with coconut milk, and voila. Youve got a violet drink.
If you dont fancy something purple, you can always try the just-as-popular-on-Instagram Cinderella Latte. Thats a pumpkin spice latte with half the syrup swapped for the white mocha option.
