Starbucks Has a New 'Cloud' Drink-and a New Celebrity Ambassador

Share

Starbucks has debuted a new coffee drink featuring "a cloud of cold foam" with the help of singer Ariana Grande. Cloud Macchiato is said to "combine the craft of Starbucks espresso, the heritage of Starbucks Caramel Macchiato (created in 1996) and the innovation of Starbucks Cold Foam, an airy microfoam frothed cold and blended until smooth, creating layers of creamy texture and flavor, without the cream".

The company describes it as a light, fluffy and silky treat, available hot or iced, that customers can enjoy in two flavors: Caramel Cloud Macchiato and Cinnamon Cloud Macchiato. Presumably you can order whatever size you like, but "grande" is probably recommended.

ABC News has reached out to the White House for comment, but has not yet heard back. The White House confirmed Monday it had received a letter from Nadler.

The brand new drink, which comes iced or sizzling, shall be served at shops in the United States and Canada and is an everlasting addition to the menu. First, the popular coffee chain tweeted a message that included a series of emojis including clouds, a cup of coffee, and a green heart. However, what's interesting about Starbucks' Cloud Macchiato is that American popstar Ariana Grande had a hand in coming up with the novel drink.

And if you think this was just the coffee chain having some fun, we did too until we saw Grande's own tweets, and even an Instagram story, with a screenshot of the tweet set over a background of clouds.

The addition draws inspiration, according to Starbucks, from the leche merengada, or "meringue milk", a summer drink from the cafés of Spain. Starbucks has added a new edition to their cold beverage menu.

How does Ariana Grande fit in to this?
