We've got the scoop on the next trendy Starbucks color

Worried that Starbucks is getting annoyed by all the rainbow drink orders? Think again! One look at the coffee chain's Instagram proves it is fully on board with the trend.

The rainbow drinks are totally perfect for summer when you aren't exactly craving the roasted, toasted flavor of iced coffee but still want something cool to drink. They're usually a blend of tea, flavoring and nondairy milk. Of the few I've tried so far, the black tea + matcha + coconut milk Green Drink is my favorite.

That's right, y'all — get ready for Clear Drink! A refreshing blend of water and ice, the drink is the most Instagrammable creation this side of the clear waters of the Caribbean. Imagine how envious your friends will be when they see this sparkling, diamond-esque beauty pop up in their feed.

All you have to do to order one is ask your barista for water and ice. Luckily it's pretty simple, so even if they don't know what Clear Drink is, they should still be able to get it right. And best of all? It's totally free.

Of course, if Clear Drink's not your thing, you could always go with the elegant Brown Drink — it even has caffeine to keep you alert in the summer heat.

At least it feels like that's where we're headed, doesn't it? With a new color coming out seemingly every week, it's only a matter of time before someone tries to co-opt water as part of the trend. And when they do? You can say you saw it here first, folks.
