Starbucks Actually Made a Drink Called the ‘Ariana Grande,’ Here’s What’s in It

To most people, she’s a pop diva who may or may not do a lot of walking. But Ariana Grande is also a fancy new drink at Starbucks. Well, sort of.


An intrepid BuzzFeed reporter, who was less familiar with she of  “Love Me Harder” fame, thought that the name Ariana Grande really sounded like it should be a delicious caffeinated drink. So she stopped by her local coffee chain and decided to order exactly that. 

And ever the consummate professionals, the Starbucks baristas didn’t even bat an eye. Amy, the lucky employee who created the order, was in fact super jazzed about preparing an Ariana Grande. She told BuzzFeed that she was going to include “extra everything,” because she thought the real Ariana would want it that way.

So just what does “extra everything” entail? All of the following: A Cotton Candy Frappuccino base (i.e. Vanilla Bean and Raspberry), mocha syrup, mocha chips, whipped cream, and a caramel drizzle. 

We know what you’re thinking: That actually sounds pretty vulgar. But according to the BuzzFeed reporter it was, and we quote: “A disco techno circus party in my mouth.” For what it’s worth, that could either be a very good thing or a very bad thing. 

There’s no word on whether this drink will be added to Starbucks’ secret menu, but if you’re looking for a disco techno circus party with your morning scone, it’s worth a shot ordering.
