FAST FOOD NEWS: Starbucks Juniper Latte

Starbucks Juniper Latte

Starbucks has a new wintery beverage this season.

No, it’s not a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Mocha Frappuccino, which I imagine would be a cranberry mocha Frappuccino mix that’s topped with a chocolate-infused whipped cream and a round piece of chocolate with a shiny red candy shell. And, it would come with an antler-shaped crazy straw.

The new drink is the Juniper Latte and it’s made with Starbucks’ signature espresso and steamed milk infused with juniper syrup that’s topped with a velvety foam and pine-citrus sugar. It’s inspired by a Juniper holiday beverage that debuted last year exclusively at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle.

Starbucks’ Juniper Latte is available for a limited time, while supplies last.

  1. Finally something new and outside of the standard flavor profiles they do. I haven’t been this interested in trying one of their seasonal drinks since the iced mulling spice drink a few years ago.

  2. It’s not good, like most of their flavored hot drinks. Tastes like basic steamed milk with a lingering herbal aftertaste.

  3. Didn’t mind it. The juniper flavor was very subtle in the Frappuccino I got today. Could smell a faint piney scent, but actually tasted more like my usual mocha. I wouldn’t go out of your way for it.

  4. The syrup on its own tastes and smells like Buckley’s cough syrup. Didn’t bother trying the drink.

  5. I got one a hot one yesterday and I really liked it. I usually don’t like Starbucks lattes because no matter what they always taste either bitter or way too sweet for me. The juniper syrup provided just the right amount of subtle flavor and aroma that the drink was not really sweet but not bitter either. It did have a slight pine scent which at fist I thought would be nasty in a coffee drink but it was very pleasant. A lot of people have reported that it tastes like pinesol or some other kind of cleaner but I didn’t get that at all. I am definitely going to be getting another one before the season is over.

  6. This literally tastes like a Christmas tree latte. Very pine-y flavor that is weird because I couldn’t tell if I liked it or not. The description and name of the drink definitely grabbed my attention. I wouldn’t get it again, but glad I tried it.
