|The new Cinnamon Shortbread Latte.|
Only at Starbucks.
The holidays have sprung and Winter has begun. In fact, the snow falls have been hitting all us here in the United States with full force. Today Starbucks introduced an incredible seasonal beverage: the Cinnamon Shortbread Latte.
Combining the richness of brown sugar, butter and vanilla, this warm delight is topped with some of the finest gourmand spices which embody the holiday season, nutmeg and cinnamon. This drink tastes a lot Cinnabon. As most of Starbucks seasonal offerings rarely disappoint me, this flavorful addition joins forces with those that are simply amazing.
I will admit, I prefer cold coffee (iced coffee and/or frappes) to warm coffee drinks, but this drink is the perfect pair with Starbucks wonderful old fashioned glazed donut.
And in addition to this fantastic latte, Starbucks is introducing quite a few wonderful things. It is has been one year since Starbucks had the blonde espresso on the menu. The blonde espresso is a robust coffee drink which is modestly smooth and a little sweet. Today, Starbucks is introducing two new drinks to complement this type of espresso. These drinks include the Starbucks Blonde Flat White, which consists of a blonde espresso shot made with whole milk and the Iced Starbucks Americano, where espresso shots are topped with water to produce a natural crema effect and served over ice.
Starbucks is also adding two new drinks to complement their signature espresso. first drink is the Iced Caramel Macchiato, which combines Starbucks' signature espresso with vanilla syrup, milk and ice as well as a caramel garnish. The second drink is the White Chocolate Mocha, combines the essence of white chocolate and steamed milk. This drink is then garnished with whipped cream. I enjoy both of these drinks with almond milk and/or coconut milk.
The world-renowned coffee house will also make the morning bun a permanent item in their bakery items, which I find to be fantastic. It is one of my favorites on the menu right. And the new Red Velvet Cake Loaf is to die for. It is definitely one of my favorite bakery items they have out right now.
I don't know where you will be, but I know where I will be today during my breakfast, my lunch and my dinner. Starbucks, I hope you are waiting for me.
