* Lady Gaga launches “Cups of Kindness” at Starbucks
* Four iced drinks that celebrate summer
* $0.25 from every drink sold goes to Born This Way Foundation
The singer has teamed up with Starbucks on a limited-edition drinks collection, launching today across participating stores in the U.S. and Canada. Titled “Cups of Kindness,” 25 cents from every beverage sold will benefit Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, which advocates for LGBTQ+ rights and youth empowerment.
Four specially-created drinks are being offered:
New Matcha Lemonade: This vibrant green drink (pictured below) is made with finely ground Teavana matcha green tea, combined with crisp lemonade then shaken with ice to create a refreshingly sweet, delicious drink.
New Violet Drink: The sweet blackberries and tart hibiscus of Very Berry Hibiscus Starbucks Refreshers Beverage swirl together with creamy coconutmilk and ice, creating a refreshing (and violet-hued) sip.
Ombré Pink Drink: A refreshing beverage that combines light, fruity Cool Lime Starbucks Refreshers Beverage with cool, creamy coconutmilk and a splash of Teavana Shaken Iced Passion Tango Tea and a lime wheel, for a bright burst of hibiscus notes.
Pink Drink: A light and refreshing beverage that features the sweet strawberry flavors of Strawberry Acai Refreshers with accents of passion fruit and acai combined with coconutmilk, and topped with a scoop of strawberries. Included in Cups of Kindness collection in United States only.
“We’re healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion and our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect,” said Lady Gaga in a statement to Starbucks. “Born This Way Foundation and I are so excited to partner with Starbucks to help inspire positivity and love through the Cups of Kindness collection.”
The drinks will only be available at Starbucks until June 19. Starbucks has committed to a minimum $250,000 contribution to the Born This Way Foundation.
