When you have a cold, the last place you think of going for medicine is Starbucks, but it turns out that maybe you should! I’ll take any excuse to make a trip to Starbucks!

Winter may be ending, but now we are in that transition period between hot and cold, mix that with pollen and you have a lot of sick people. Luckily, if you are on the go, there is a drink on the Starbucks secret menu that could save you an unwanted trip to the doctor. Let’s be honest spending those extra few dollars is worth not having to taste the average cold medicine.

The drink is called the “Medicine Ball” or the “Cold Buster”, and is comprised of one Jade Citrus Mint tea bag, one Peach Tranquility tea bag, half a cup of hot water, half a cup of steamed lemonade, a pump of peppermint, and a few packs of honey. My throat feels better just writing the ingredients.

Right now the drink is not on the actual menu, but according to Fortune, a Starbucks store manager proposed that the item be added to the regular menu when he noticed how often the drink was ordered after spotting it posted on Instagram.

Excuse me for cutting this article short, Off to Starbucks 🙂
