Starbucks’ New Juniper Latte Might Be Its Fanciest, Most Festive Drink Yet
Starbucks can be counted on to make a big statement every holiday season, from seasonal red cups to festive holiday drinks. Today, the brand announced the new Juniper Latte as the latest offering, inspired by a drink served last year at its Reserve Roastery location in Seattle — so you know it’s fancy.
The Juniper Latte is made of espresso and steamed milk infused with juniper syrup and capped with “velvety foam” and a dusting of light green pine-citrus sugar. Starbucks likens it to an enchanted forest dusted with fresh snow… which may be the most poetic tasting note we’ve ever heard. It is available starting today for a limited time and will join other holiday beverages such as Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte, and Eggnog Latte.
While you are out buying holiday-inspired lattes anyway, you may want to make a note to visit Starbucks on World AIDS Day on Dec. 1. The chain will donate 20 cents to the Global Fund for every handcrafted latte purchased, including the new Juniper Latte, at participating locations.
