Ariana Grande Is Collaborating With Starbucks on Her Own Drink

Starbucks unveiled a new drink that was added to its permanent menu the Cloud Macchiato

Introducing a new type of foam fit for both hot and iced drinks is a way for Starbucks to drive growth in its successful line of cold beverages - and help build excitement around new cold beverages as customers move away from Frappuccinos.

Ariana Grande has sold millions of albums and sold out arenas around the world.

The drink is being released for International Women's Day and Starbucks will be playing a curated list by Grande of her songs.

Global coffee retailer and restaurant chain Starbucks just shared information about their new drink - Cloud Macchiato.

The Grande-curated drink, however, is only available in participating United States and Canada branches.

According to the information on Starbucks' website, the Cloud Macchiato contains ice, milk, brewed espresso, vanilla syrup, a flavoured sauce of choice and the star ingredient - a cloud powder which contains sugar, Arabic gum, egg white powder, rice protein, sea salt, xanthan gum and natural flavouring. Part of what gives the drink its fluffy texture are egg whites that are incorporated into the drink.

"Who dares to buy this in another size other than grande", posted one commenter, with others soon following suit. She also borrowed a Starbucks green apron for the photo shoot. You want it, we got it.

Which. oh Ms. Grande, that's not how you spell the name of the town.

"The "Thank U, Next" singer is touting her new "#starbucksambassador" status nonstop to the Twitterverse, sharing images of herself slurping with some baristas, and posing, plastic cup in hand, with a variety of cute pooches. It's unclear whether the release of the Grande-collaboration drink and the celebration of women are connected.
