It's only on sale for four short weeks, with the pink drink only available until July 2.

And it's customisable

As with many of the store's products, the drink originated over in the States.

There, it's a flavour combination of bubble gum and strawberry topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with crumbled cookies.

Over here, there are a few customisations on offer.

You can have the drink made with a range of milks, including coconut, soya and almond.

While there's also the option to have the drink with or without the pink whipped cream.

When it comes to toppings, sadly cookie crumbles aren't on the menu.

You can, however, top your pink drink with caramel or mocha drizzle.
