Ana Garcia recently posted a video of herself waiting in the Starbucks drive-thru, before explaining her trick to her TikTok viewers.

“So, I’m at Starbucks and my kids think I’m getting them something,” the mom begins in the video. “Ooh, but what they don’t know won’t hurt them.”

In the video, Garcia is seen adding Kool-Aid powder to two Starbucks water cups with ice — drinks that can be ordered from Starbucks for free — with the intent on telling her kids the beverages were made by the coffee chain.

“This crisis is tough, just add a little sugar and you are ready to go!” the mom continues in Spanish.

The money-saving video has been viewed more than 230,000 times and liked nearly 40,000 times on social media, where users praised the woman’s ingenuity.
