Back to the roots: Who invented the popular pink drink

Nevertheless, it has only been enjoying huge attention here with us since the beginning of 2021, and only triggered by a TikTok video. Thus, the pink nutrient bomb joins the ranks of the platform’s viral trends. Proffee and Dalgona Coffee, your time at the top of TikTok-Drinks is over!

Pink Drink by Hartkorn
Serving Size: 4 Preparation time: 15 minutes
What you need:
- 100 g Raspberries
- 800 ml Coconut milk
- 4 springs of mint
- 4 TL Young Kitchen Eistee Himbeer-Minze
- 800 ml Water
- Elderflower syrup
- A few ice cubes
The ‘How to’:
As easy and quick as this drink is prepared, it also tastes delicious. First boil the water, then mix in our Young Kitchen Himbeer-Minze Eistee in. Let it sit for about 10 minutes before filtering the tea and setting it aside to cool down.
In the meantime, wash and dry the mint and the raspberries. That way the mint can unfold its full taste. Pluck individual leaves from the stem.
Now it’s time for the glasses: Grab four long drink glasses and add some of the mint leaves and about 4 to 5 raspberries to each glass. Crush the berries on the bottom of the glass.
Split the raspberries and ice cubes evenly into all glasses so that every glass gets a fair share of ingredients and all drinks are cooled evenly. For a little extra sweetness, add a dash of elderflower syrup to each glass.
Now you only have to pour 200 ml of ice tea and add an additional 200 ml of coconut drink – done!
Last but not least, you look for a nice place in the sun and a little time-out.
