Dunkin’s New Pink Velvet Macchiato Is A ‘Gram-Worthy Twist On A Classic

Updated:

Dunkin’s spreading the love with the return of a ‘Gram-worthy Valentine’s Day beverage. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Dunkin's Pink Velvet Macchiato is making a comeback along with a new mocha sip. The festive drink looks as good as it tastes, so get ready to take your Valentine’s Day Instagram posts up a notch.

The Pink Velvet Macchiato, which is back as of Jan. 27 and first made waves with its release in 2020, owes its aesthetic look to a distinct red velvet swirl, which is created from a blend of Dunkin's rich espresso with red velvet cake flavor and hints of cream cheese icing. The decadent beverage has a colorful pink-layered look when served on ice, making it the perfect holiday beverage. The suggested retail price for a medium hot Pink Velvet Macchiato is $3.69, while the suggested retail price of a medium iced Pink Velvet Macchiato is $4.19, depending on the location.

For 2021, fans can also delight in another Valentine's Day pick-me-up: the Mocha Macchiato, which is also available hot or iced. It was created as a “moody, mellow complement” to its more whimsical pink counterpart, per Dunkin’s news release. (The Mocha Macchiato has been available since macchiatos launched at Dunkin’ in 2015, but this is the first time it's been hyped as a Valentine’s Day sip.) The beverage is a blend of Dunkin' espresso and mocha flavors, giving it a deep chocolate taste and, when served iced, a cool ombre appearance. The suggested retail price for a medium hot Mocha Macchiato is $3.69, while the suggested retail price for a medium iced version is $4.19. The actual price may vary depending on the location.
