The Secret Recipe Behind The Most Instagrammable Rainbow-Coloured Drink

Starbucks has finally revealed the secret ingredients inside its colorful array of drinks taking over Instagram


Nothing screams 'I'm an Instagram pro' like a perfectly-poised, rainbow-hued treat.

For weeks, Instagram has been flooded with Starbucks' trippy-coloured rainbow drinks, adding to the ever-growing number of Willy Wonka'esque food trends that has us questioning whether our brains/mouths have reached peak rainbow


Regardless of our uncertainty with the My Little Pony-inspired foods, we've become increasingly curious as how we can get our hands on a cup of rainbow goodness.

(After all, they'd look great under a cherry blossom tree with a freshly-painted manicure on Instagram).


Rumour has it the beverage was only reserved for the company's elite (who presumably know some secret handshake, owl call or can flash one of those cheesy smiles you can't help try out at the counter of Pret-A-Manger in an attempt to get a free coffee). 

But finally, Starbucks has released the secret behind its exotic-toned drinks to the public, which now means we call all enjoy the summer beverage. 

And, surprisingly, they're not as unhealthy as we thought. Well, sort of.
