Starbucks cozy winter menu introduces the new Pistachio Cream Cold Brew
The seasonal line-up also features the returning Pistachio Latte
Starbucks greets the new year with the launch of its winter menu on Tuesday, January 3, featuring the return of the fan-favorite Pistachio Latte and the new Pistachio Cream Cold Brew. The beloved Red Velvet Loaf returns to the bakery case to round out Starbucks winter menu.
The new handcrafted Starbucks Pistachio Cream Cold Brew features Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, and is topped with silky pistachio cream cold foam and salted brown-buttery sprinkles. The Pistachio Cream Cold Brew builds on customers’ love of the Pistachio Latte and the popularity of cold coffee year-round.
Returning for a third year is the fan-favorite Pistachio Latte, which made a splash when it launched in Winter 2021. Whether served hot, iced, or as a Frappuccino® blended beverage, the Pistachio Latte perfectly combines Starbucks signature espresso and milk with the cozy flavor of sweet pistachio and is finished with a salted brown butter topping.
“Pistachio is the perfect flavor to follow the holidays and carry us through the winter season,” said Rosalyn Batingan on the Starbucks beverage team. “Its smooth and sweet profile delivers a feeling of warmth and coziness, even when served cold. With the Pistachio Cream Cold Brew, coffee lovers will savor the ultra-smooth combination of pistachio cream cold foam atop our cold brew. We are also delighted to welcome back the Pistachio Latte, which pairs our signature espresso, steamed milk, and flavors of sweet pistachio with top notes of brown butter.”
Returning to the bakery case is the beloved Red Velvet Loaf, a delicious vanilla cake swirled with classic red velvet cake and topped with white chocolatey icing.
