What a week it has been for sweet treats - the Queen’s pastry chefs have revealed the recipe for her beloved Victoria sponge cake, and now Starbucks announced it is bringing its famous ‘Ruby Flamingo Frappuccino’ to the UK.

The coffee chain’s ice-cool drink, which is already available in other countries, comes in an Instagram-friendly pink shade that has seen it widely shared on social media.

It contains a chocolate and raspberry-flavoured syrup, and is finished off with whipped cream.

Now, British people will get to sample the limited edition cold beverage for just under a month - from June 4th to July 2nd.

"Food will also be on offer but with a slightly more restricted menu, focused on our most popular items.

"As a small gesture of gratitude for everything NHS workers have and continue to do, we’re offering a free Tall beverage of their choice at our stores."
