Starbucks has a new drink coming to its official menu, and some baristas have already started complaining about it.

The new beverage is a spin off of Starbucks' wildly popular Pink Drink, which just made it on the official menu a couple of months ago. This new version, called the "Ombre Pink Drink," starts off with a coconut milk and Cool Lime Refresher base and is topped off with Passion Tea. Some baristas on Instagram that have been selling it a little ahead of schedule are also garnishing their drinks with slices of lime.

While this sounds like something that would be on the unofficial Starbucks "secret menu," we do have confirmation from the Starbucks subreddit that the Ombre Pink Drink is an official beverage launching next week.

That of course, hasn't stopped some baristas from griping about the new drink. Several apparently aren't down with the flavor of it, although some baristas on Instagram have reportedly loved the new beverage.

One barista was also just done with Starbucks bringing in more Instagram-worthy beverages.

Regardless of how the baristas feel, you'll be able to get your own opinion on this drink starting next week. Since some baristas have started making it already, however, there's a chance you can get one now if you ask.
