Those who have been curious about what it would be like to drink an evergreen will be pleased with Starbucks' latest holiday release. At this time of the year, Starbucks typically add a few seasonal beverages to their repertoire, and this year is no different. Not only do they change the standard cups to holiday cups, but there will also be some festive drinks on the menu. Although most Starbucks fans already have a go-to beverage that they get every single time, this is the perfect moment to leave the comfort zone and indulge in something decadently Christmasy.
This year Starbucks is releasing a new beverage called the Juniper Latte, and some people compare the taste to drinking an evergreen. It can't get much more festive than that! The Juniper Latte has an evergreen aroma, hints of citrus and sage, and of course juniper syrup. To make it even more festive, the holiday special is topped off with a sprinkle of pine-citrus sugar.
As reported by Cosmopolitan, the Juniper Latte is actually not a completely new addition to Starbucks' Christmas beverage selection. Last Christmas Starbucks' also offered a Juniper Latte, but that one had slightly different ingredients as it included mandarin and juniper sugar. Those who loved last year's Juniper Latte will most likely be pleased to see it back on the shelves this year, and it will be available at selected Starbucks coffee shops in the United States and Canada.
For anyone who tried it and did not like it, or who prefers something a bit more traditional when it comes to Christmas beverages, Starbucks is of course also offering a plethora of other festive drinks to chose from. Some of the other seasonal beverages are the Eggnog Latte, the Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte and Chestnut Praline Latte.
It is important to keep in mind that the seasonal drinks offered may vary between Starbucks stores and also depending on the country. In the regions Europe, Middle East and Africa one can also enjoy a Flat White with Cinnamon Spice or a Salted Caramel Brownie Hot Chocolate.
