A new line of caffeine fueled drinks are available at all Starbucks locations for the winter season including the return of their beloved pistachio latte.
We did it! We got through the holiday season. Even if you gained a few gray hairs or pounds (thanks, Christmas cookies), and left some of your sanity in December, you deserve a pat on the back.
Unfortunately, winter itself is still here for the long haul. That's where the beauty of the newly released winter menu at Starbucks comes in!
From new coffee mashups to colorful new merch, the winter collection is full of delicious flavors and vibrant designs to brighten up a dark January day.
Don’t you sort of wish it ended with the New Year? Can we move Christmas to March? Seriously. It would give us something to look forward to when the temperatures are below zero for what feels like months on end.
Or maybe you’re smart and live where the air doesn’t hurt your face. Either way, the hustle is over and now we can back to our regularly scheduled lives.
The Pistachio Latte is Back at Starbucks
All this week I have been celebrating the new year with a pistachio latte from Starbucks. It is my favorite flavor offered by the beloved coffee giant.
Mark my words when I say - the pistachio latte is my pumpkin spice latte. I wait for it all year long! It's that good.
The pistachio latte starts off like any other, with the addition of a delicious pistachio syrup and topped with salted brown butter sprinkles.
This coffee won’t cure your winter blues, but it sure helps. It is available hot, iced, or as a Frappuccino. All of them are utterly delicious!
Introducing the Pistachio Cream Cold Brew + More Newbies
New this season is a vanilla syrup-sweetened cold brew, served over ice and topped with pistachio cream cold foam and those delicious sprinkles.
That's not the only newbie entering the winter lineup though! Starbucks is dropping a bunch of new flavors and goodies for winter.
If you are looking for a sweet treat, check the pastry case for a swirled vanilla and red velvet cake topped with white chocolate icing. *Drools*
If the handcrafted beverages aren’t enough, Starbucks is also featuring three new whole bean options:
- Starbucks Tribute Blend - Notes of black cherry and baking spices.
- Starbucks Reserve Guatemala Lake Atitlan - Notes of malted chocolate and apricot.
- Starbucks Reserve Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Chelelektu - Notes of raspberry and honey.
Of course, with the change of seasons the swag gets upgraded. New tumblers and mugs adorned in fresh flowers are available while supplies last.
