How To Order The Starbucks Green Drink

You've already ordered the Starbucks Pink Drink, obsessed over Purple Drink, dreamed about Orange Drink, and wondered out loud about Blue Drink. But have you heard about Green Drink? You may not have immediately caught on about its existence after food blogger cookeatlift posted an Instagram photo of Blue Drink, surrounded by its rainbow-colored Secret Menu cousins, but there, peeking out in the background, was the unsung hero of the day, Green Drink. Wondering how to order the Starbucks Green Drink for yourself? This Secret Menu concoction hasn't gotten nearly as much attention as its brightly hued counterparts, and gosh darn it I say we give it the credit it deserves. No rainbow is complete without green. We need this beverage in our lives. The sanctity of ROYGBIV depends on it.

But let's back up for a minute, shall we? Because this is possibly the first time you've ever heard of Green Drink, you probably want to know what the heck is even in it. According to an Instagram post from cookeatlift, the beverage consists of black tea, matcha, and coconut milk. It kind of sounds like a refreshing break from its sweeter Starbucks rainbow drink counterparts, like Pink Drink, which is made with a Strawberry Acai Refresher and coconut milk, or Orange Drink, which is full of orange mango juice. Also, when I hear the words "black tea," one very important thing comes to mind — a beautiful little ingredient called CAFFEINE. So if you're looking for a rainbow mood booster, this is probably it.

Because this isn't an official part of the Starbucks menu, not all baristas will immediately know what you're talking about when you say you'd like Green Drink. Not to worry, though, because I'm going to walk you through exactly how to order.

1. Go to Starbucks

Pick a Starbucks, any Starbucks.

2. Ask for a Shaken Iced Black Tea

You might be saying to yourself at this point, "but it's not green!" Patience, child. We're simply prepping our canvas.

3. Ask that it be made with coconut milk

Think of that creamy goodness!

4. Ask the barista to add matcha

Ahh, it's all starting to make sense now, isn't it?

And there you have it — a beautiful, lime-hued drink that will keep you caffeinated and refreshed at the same time. The beauty of the Starbucks Secret Menu is that anything on it can be made from ingredients most Starbucks stores keep stocked up anyway, so if this is something you're interested in trying, you should have no trouble getting your hands on it. But if you do run into any unforeseen obstacles, don't panic. There's a Starbucks Iced Green Tea Latte on the regular menu that's just as beautiful — and probably way easier to order up.
