Lady Gaga might not be coming to Rockford on tour this summer, but four of her Starbucks drinks are.

I know I say this whenever I write about Starbucks, but, the marketing team over there is genius.

They manage to make luxury affordable, and this time they also have Lady Gaga's name on it.

Starting today (June 13), Starbucks is introducing 'Cups of Kindness' with Lady Gaga.

The four drinks, Matcha Lemonade, Violet Drink, Pink Drink and Ombre Pink Drink, will be available as kindness cups through Monday June 19.

Starbucks lists the four drinks as follows:

  • New Matcha Lemonade:  This vibrant green drink 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.

So what's so kind about the drinks?

When you purchase one of the four during this time period, twenty five cents of each drink will be donated to Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and the Channel Kindness project.

This will absolutely help justify the $5 each of these drinks will probably set you back.

Plus, bonus info: each drink is less than 150 calories for a grande size which makes me pretty happy.
