Pink Drink

This pink drink is my interpretation of the Starbucks drink. Made with hibiscus tea, orange juice and coconut milk, this punch recipe is fresh, fruity and super refreshing.

Rewind to yoga class one month in the past. Earlier than we acquired began, the trainer began off with a narrative about her current expertise at Starbucks. She ordered her drink (the “pink drink”) and was tremendous pleasant to the barista (I forgot the small print). In flip, she acquired her drink without spending a dime! Deal with others nicely and you’ll be handled will in return. Deal with your physique nicely and it’ll deal with you nicely in return, she stated.

Her golden rule analogy was misplaced on me as a result of I used to be entranced by this “pink drink” concept. She talked about that it had hibiscus tea and coconut milk in it. Inhale, cat, exhale, cow, hibiscus tea, coconut milk. Hmmm. Downward canine, hibiscus tea, proper leg up, lunge, coconut milk.


I do know I’m purported to focus solely on yoga throughout class, however I couldn’t cease enthusiastic about the pink drink. Did you see the hibiscus pink lemonade within the cookbook? I actually like hibiscus tea and its naturally shiny pink shade.

So, I went residence and began enjoying round with the thought. I created a pink drink that I actually loved earlier than I even drove to Starbucks to attempt their model. I lastly ordered one a few weeks later (it’s not on the menu; you must ask for it). Right here’s the kicker, although—I didn’t prefer it! I appreciated mine a lot better, and everybody who has tried it loves it, too.
