Starbucks said the "refreshingly sweet" Matcha Lemonade is made by taking finely ground Teavana matcha green tea and shaking it together with lemonade and ice. As for the Violet Drink, the company said it mixes the sweet and tart combo of blackberries and hibiscus from its Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher with coconut milk and ice to create the light violet-hued beverage. Just like the Pink Drink and Ombre Pink Drink, both of the new creations are non-dairy. Lady Gaga appears to have a favorite.
“I adore the entire collection and I instantly fell in love with the Matcha Lemonade,” she said.
Starbucks has committed a minimum $250,000 donation to the Born This Way Foundation, per the release. The proceeds will go towards programs that support youth empowerment and wellness, such as improving mental health resources and creating positive environments, among others. In other words, you can now feel slightly less terrible about blowing $5 on a Pink Drink.
