Say "Thank U, Next" to Your Usual Starbucks Order, Because the Cloud Macchiato Is Here
Get ready to say "thank u, next" to your usual Starbucks order, because the coffee chain just dropped a new beverage — the Cloud Macchiato — and yes, Ariana Grande is involved. The dreamy drink, which is now a permanent menu item, stars a light cloud of cold milk foam that's topped with espresso shots and finished with a caramel drizzle (no added sweetener required — hah). It's available in two flavors — Caramel and Cinnamon — both of which can be ordered either hot or iced. This drink sounds so tasty, we have no (happy) tears left to cry!
On March 4, just one day before the beverage was officially released, Starbucks sent Ariana fans into a full-blown tizzy when its social media accounts began teasing the Cloud Macchiato in a series of cryptic posts. The brand's Twitter account shared a handful of cloud-themed photos prompting followers to just keep breathin' and zoom in on the images, which revealed hidden messages related to Ariana's music. The "God Is a Woman" singer herself also got in on the fun by firing off an emoji-filled tweet that alluded to the March 5 drop of the Starbucks Cloud Macchiato. We're definitely vibin' on this collaboration!
