Ariana Grande attends Billboard's 13th Annual Women In Music event at Pier 36 in New York City on on Dec. 6, 2018. 

Launching Tuesday (March 5) in coffee shops across the United States, Starbucks is introducing a new twist on a menu favorite, thanks to Ariana Grande. The brew house teamed up with the recent Grammy winner as its newest brand ambassador and unveiled the Grande-inspired Cloud Macchiato beverage.

The drink features a special “Cloud foam” recipe and includes egg whites combined with espresso and a caramel drizzle.

How did this flavorful collaboration come about? According to Starbucks, “We’ve long been fans of Ariana Grande’s (and we’re both fans of Clouds), so we’re excited to work with her to celebrate the debut of Cloud Macchiato,” a press release detailed.

There appears to be a theme here. Last year, Grande released a fragrance, also named Cloud. The 25-year-old took to social media today sharing photos of the new beverage.

Grande’s latest album, Thank U, Next, is currently No. 2 on the Billboard 200 after spending two weeks at the top. The singer is rehearsing for her Sweetener Tour, slated to begin March 18 in Albany, N.Y.
