“A project of the Born This Way Foundation, Channel Kindness, empowers young people to document stories of kindness in their worlds. Grounded in the belief that compassion and kindness are key to building vibrant, productive communities, the platform gives young people the resources and opportunities they need to help change the world—one act of kindness at a time.” – Starbucks
Lady Gaga has inspired her fans to embrace kindness in their communities. With every Cup of Kindness drink that is purchased from 6/13 to 6/19, Starbucks will donate $0.25 to the Born This Way Foundation. There are various drinks that helps with this event. From left to right lets begin.
The Matcha Lemonade is made with matcha green tea and lemonade shaken with ice and and extra matcha powder. Here are the stats according to Starbucks:
The Violet Drink is made with sweet blackberries, tart hibiscus and shaken with coconut milk and ice for a refreshing exuberance. Lets see the stats via Starbucks:
After getting a second helping of the Violet Drink because the first time was watery and the barista was learning the new drink which is understandable, the drink is not was bad as I thought it would be. There is alot more flavor in this drink compared to matcha lemonade. What help made this drink send out in my opinion is the blackberries and the coconut milk. This drink was sweet and smooth with richness although light like you’re on air.
Ombré Pink Drink
When I saw this drink i was wondering what makes this drink different from the regular pink drink. Of course one is hombre and the other is not but the hombre of this drink is quite nice. Its smooth taste is what you first taste from this refreshing drink. Once you stir the drink more and more the drink becomes more sweet and tart and the smoothness from the coconut milk starts to blend in with the lime and berry. The strawberry and lime is what you end up tasting in the end but its great when you’re looking for a taste like that.
With a crisp strawberry acai refresher from Starbucks, coconut milk and passion fruit the Pink Drink is sure to make the splash.
