Feeling under the weather lately? Still need your Starbucks fix? Starbucks now is offering to help you get over a cold.
Starbucks has a lot of things on its secret menu, from Thin Mint frappuccinos to S’mores hot chocolates. Now they’re taking it to the next level with “The Medicine Ball.”
When you feel a cold coming on (or if you already have one) ask for "The Medicine Ball". #starbucksmedicineball #starbuckscoldbuster Update 3/29/17: It's peculiar that is drink is getting so much attention all of a sudden. The "news article" going around has several different authors depending on which link you follow. It seems that not one of them has bothered to do research, check sources, or seek permission to link to people's Instagram accounts. This concoction has been around for at least a couple years that I know of. It was recommended to my husband by a barista at one of our local @Starbucks, and he suggested it to me when I was sick. Who really knows if it's a customer-invented drink, or if a creative barista (who may, or may not, have been working at a completely different company) came up with it…?🤔____________________________________________#WWendiWonkySketches #art4all #everydaymatters #illustratedlife #sketch #creativitykillsoldness #insidemysketchbook #inkpen #inksketch #straighttoink #freehandsketch #quicksketch #watercolorsketch #everydaysketch #lettering #foodsketch #sketching #watercolor #inkandwash #linesketch #sketchjournal #illustratedjournal #visualjournal #sketchbook #waterbrush @fabercastellglobal #pittartistpen #watercolorpencils @stillmanandbirn #stillmanandbirn Softcover Epsilon
The drink became so popular and so many people had asked for it, that Starbucks COO Kevin Johnson said it had to be fast tracked into making it onto the menu, according to Today.
So what’s in it?
1 Venti cup filled with half hot water and half steamed lemonade
1 bag of Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Tea
1 bag of Teavana Peach Tranquility Tea
1 packet of honey
Pump of peppermint (optional)
Mmmmmm tea… Would you drink it?
