Starbucks OMBRE Pink Drink copycat
The Starbucks Ombre Pink Drink copycat recipe
For the Cool Lime Refresher:
- 1 cup peeled and diced cucumbers
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves finely chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup filtered water
- 1 tablespoon Green Bean coffee powder
- Juice of 15 fresh squeezed limes, about 1 1/2 cup lime juice**
- 2 cups white grape juice
- 5 cups cold filtered water divided
For the Passion Fruit tea:
- 5 cups filtered water, for boiling
- 6 Passion Fruit Tea Bags
- 3 cups cold filtered water
For the Ombre Pink Drink:
- 1/2 cup coconut milk for each drink
- Lime wheel for garnish
Make the Cool Lime Refresher:
Add 1 cup of peeled and diced cucumbers and 1/2 cup of finely chopped mint leaves into 3 cups of water.
Store in a lidded container and place in the fridge (this can be done up to 24 hours ahead of time- the longer the water mixes with the cucumber and mint, the better.)
Add 1 cup of sugar (or sugar substitute) to 1 cup of water to create a simple syrup.
Heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool.
Drain the cucumber/mint water over a strainer, saving the water.
Add the cucumber/mint water into a large pitcher, add the simple syrup and the juice of about 15 limes**
Add the white grape juice and an additional 2 cups of cold water and stir well.
Serve immediately over ice or let the mixture sit in the fridge so the flavors all mix.
Make the Passion Fruit tea:
Boil 5 cups of water in a teapot on the stove. Steep 6 Passion Fruit tea bags for 30 minutes.
Remove the tea from the stove and pour into a serving pitcher. Add 3 cups of cold filtered water.
Make the Ombre Pink Drink:
Fill a tall glass with ice.
In a jar with lid, shake together 1 cup of Cool Lime Refresher and 1/2 cup coconut milk.
Pour the lime coconut mixture over the ice. Add a straw.*
Rinse out the jar, then add 1/2 cup of Passion Fruit Tea.
Add a few ice cubes, seal the jar and shake the tea until frothy. (about 10 seconds)
Remove the ice cubes from the tea.
Place a spoon upside down over the serving glass with lime coconut mix.
Slowly pour the Passion tea over the spoon so it drizzles over the ice and lime coconut mix.
Lay a lime wheel gently on top of the drink, careful not to push the tea layer into the lime layer.
*add the straw during the drink construction. Adding the straw once the beverage is made will mix the layers.
**Both recipes for the Cool Lime Refresher and the Passion Tea make about 2 quarts of each. Therefore this recipe for the Ombre Pink Drink will make many servings. Use 1/2 cup of Coconut milk for each glass of the Ombre Pink Drink.
