Starbucks just released a Piña Colada-flavored drink. We put booze in it.
Posted on Jul 25, 2017
We’re at the height of summer, and to celebrate, Starbucks debuted a new drink this week that’s an ode to the tropics. The Piña Colada Tea Infusion, which hit stores Monday, is alcohol-free and replicates creamy, fruity flavors of the classic cocktail.
The drink uses black tea, coconut milk and a “pineapple fruit and botanical blend,” while clocking in at only 60 calories for a tall. When the original cocktail adds up to more than 250 calories, this tea may be your diet-saving indulgence.
But what could make this new infusion even better? Booze, of course. We added two ounces of white rum to a grande, but you could amp up the coconut flavor with coconut rum or another fruity flavored spirit.
