Starbucks Violet Drink | Cups of Kindness

Starbucks Violet Drink

This summer’s lineup of new Starbucks drinks not only look beautiful, but were created to spread a simple message – to be kind.

The brightly colored Violet Drink is part of the Cups of Kindness Collection in partnership with Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. Starbucks is generously donating 25 cents from each one sold at participating Starbucks stores in the US and Canada until June 19th. The funds raised will go to support youth wellness and empowerment programs.

So what’s in the violet drink?

The recipe is:

  • Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher
  • Made with coconut milk and ice
  • Scoops of blackberries

The Violet Drink is rather similar to the Pink Drink and Purple Drink but with a slightly different flavor profile. If you’re a fan of either of last summer’s hottest drinks you’ll love the violet drink. Even better, if you end up loving it you’ll be happy to hear it’s now a permanent addition to the official Starbucks menu.
