How to Make It JUST like Starbucks

When you see them make the Pink Drink at Starbucks, you see them shake it up and then it gets some foam and bubbles on the top! You can do this too if you have some extra time! Either use a cocktail shaker or a simple mason jar with a lid. Shake it all up after you’ve mixed it together and it will turn out just like it would from Starbucks!
