Starbucks Adds New Cold Brew to Its Holiday Menu and It Feels Just Like Christmas Morning

starbucks spiced sweet cream marino 70 cold brewIt's not always easy to keep your cool during the holiday season. But when it comes to staying "chill," Starbucks is on it. The coffee chain is adding its first cold coffee to its holiday beverage menu in the form of the Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew. (Yes, it's a mouthful, albeit a delicious one.)


Just days after Starbucks announced its fabulously festive favorites are back on tap, coffee lovers are salivating at this additional good news.

So what does this new concoction taste like? According to Starbucks, the cold brew starts with Nariño 70 Cold Brew coffee, which is its custom blend of 70 percent Colombia Nariño and 30 percent African coffee beans, slow-steeped for 20 hours for a super-smooth flavor.

Next, it's spiced with the flavors of cinnamon, anise, nutmeg, and vanilla, and finished with a float of house-made sweet cream. (They had you at nutmeg, didn't they?)

So, just how soon can you get your hands on one of these babies? 

Starbucks Rewards members will enjoy the first taste of this new elixir beginning November 3. (So, sign up if you don't want to be left out in the cold!) Non-rewards members will have to wait until later this month when the beverage will join the rest of holiday drink lineup at stores in the US and Canada.

We all know how hot and stuffy the malls can get around the busy holiday season, so this cold creation could be just what you need to get through it all. Bottoms up!
