Starbucks’s New Pistachio Latte
Claire Miles - January 2, 2021

Coffee and pistachio. We didn’t think the two flavors would pair well together, but clearly, they do! And now that we are officially in cozy drink season, we’re loving the warm vibes going with all the flavorful coffees! Popsugar themselves investigated the new beverage and have reported that it is, in fact, delicious!

 

“Nutty and comforting in just the right way, the Pistachio Latte’s unique flavor profile blends perfectly with whatever milk you choose. Although I was surprised by it at first — this latte definitely has a strong pistachio flavor — I appreciated how different it was and grew to like it more and more as I continued to drink it. It reminded me of pistachio gelato but almost felt like drinking (a nuttier) milky hot chocolate. The latte boasts a creamy pistachio sauce that’s blended with espresso, too, so you’ll still be able to get that jolt of energy for your morning to-dos (I know I needed it!). And the Pistachio Latte’s best part is its Salted Brown Butter Cookie Flavored Topping — it is REALLY good. I wish Starbucks sold the topping on its own, because I would put it on everything. Salty, sweet, and with the deep flavor of browned butter, this cookie-like topping is everything I ever wanted on top of my latte.”

But that isn’t all! Starbucks has also dropped other new drinks like their Honey Almond Milk Cold Brew and honestly, the name itself has us drooling. Starting January 5, Starbucks winter menu will expand to include beverages and treats to ring in the New Year! Nondairy drinkers are very excited to hear the new plant-based cold brew is sweetened with honey and topped off with almond milk. According to a press release, the espresso features “sweet flavors of pistachio and salted brown buttery topping.” One word: yum!

 

In addition to these bold beverages, Starbucks is also adding new Kale and Portabella Mushroom Sous Vide Egg Bites with 15 grams of protein to the menu, along with an Earth Day Cake Pop and Red Velvet Loaf.
