New Starbucks drink alert! Sure there’s still snow on the ground in a lot of the country, but we don’t care what that groundhog said – we’re ready for Spring to bloom when it comes to the flavors of our morning java. We can always count on Starbucks to treat us to insta-worthy new seasonal and holiday beverages, even around the globe, and the latest innovations, beginning to be served this week, do not disappoint.
There are two new macchiatos in the lineup. The new Hazelnut Mocha Coconutmilk Macchiato is steamed Sumatran coconutmilk and hazelnut syrup are combined, then marked with espresso and finished with a mocha drizzle. It it just us or does this sound like vegan Nutella? Lucky for you, this drink is available hot or iced.
The other new macchiato, is actually a return of an ol limited-edition favorite, the Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato. It is Horchata-inspired, featuring bold Espresso Roast, creamy almondmilk and sweet cinnamon dolce syrup, topped with caramel cross-hatch and a sprinkle of cinnamon dolce topping. This one is also available hot or iced.
For those of us who are more traditional in our coffee cravings, also out for spring is the Grande Iced Blonde Quad Caffe Americano, which is Blonde Espresso shots topped with water to produce a light layer of crema, served over ice. Interestingly, even though the Blonde Espresso tastes lighter than a traditional dark roast, it actually contains much more caffeine to get you going in the morning. This version also features one extra espresso shot of Blonde Espresso, so it’ll taste smooth but get the caffeine buzz goin’ pretty quickly. Some days we need that though…
If breaking out iced beverages are your favorite way to mark the changing seasons, you’re in for a good few months.
