It's a known fact that the gays do love an iced coffee, and they intermittently love Grande, so it seems like a match made in...what's that place with all the clouds and dead people? The drink comes in hot or cold version and fans can choose to get a caramel or cinnamon topping.
Ariana Grande is crushing hard - and as the powerhouse pop star is wont to do, she's hyping her latest hookup on Twitter. A Grande serving of the caramel cloud macchiato has a approximately a third of the sugar of a Frap, clocking in at 27 grams.
Grande and Starbucks tweeted identical tweets Monday featuring cloud and coffee emojis, which sparked excitement from fans via social media. She also launched a cloud-shaped perfume bottle in February and has a tattoo of a cloud on her finger.
"The original Spanish beverage combines cinnamon and lemon zest with a frothy texture, which inspired us to reinvent the beverage as a macchiato", said Erin Marinan, who works on Starbucks research and development team, in a statement. She also borrowed a Starbucks green apron for the photo shoot.
As you might have already heard, the mega-pop star du jour, Ariana Grande, is now in the central Pennsylvania region.
"Starbucks Cloud Macchiato beverages feature whipped cold milk foam that has a light, fluffy and silky-smooth texture", said Starbucks.

While some Starbucks specialty drinks serve as temporary alternatives, Cloud Macchiato will be a permanent fixture on their menu.
