There's a New Pink Drink in Town: Meet Starbucks's Iced Guava Passionfruit Beverage
Oh, what's that? You're obsessed with Starbucks's fan-favorite Pink Drink? You love how it tastes *just* like pink Starburst candies and can't resist taking an Instagram photo every time you order one?
*Starbucks's Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink has entered the chat.*
That's right, folks. Yet another blush-colored beverage has joined the permanent Starbucks menu: the Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink. Whereas the coffee chain's OG Pink Drink offers a predominantly strawberry flavor and even includes freeze-dried pieces of the red fruit, the newest offering is far more tropical, blending flavors of guava, passion fruit, pineapple, and ginger with coconut milk and ice. Whew, our tastebuds are quivering just thinking about that combination, and the fact that it's nondairy is just the icing on top.
If you're parched and ready to give this refreshing newbie a try, you can rest easy knowing Starbucks is working hard to keep customers safe amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. The chain has reopened 85 percent of stores in the US, with plans to have 90 percent open by early June, and each one is adhering to even more advanced cleaning protocols than before. Starbucks is encouraging customers to order ahead and pay on the Starbucks app, and either pick up from a barista at the front door, via the drive-thru, or by walking up to the counter in a cafe, depending on the location. All seating areas remain closed within stores, and there are floor markers in locations that are allowing customers inside to promote social distancing.
