Starbucks' Winter Menu Brings Back Pistachio-Flavored Drinks

Starbucks will give customers a final present on January 3 after the holidays. The chain's winter menu includes a new drink, snacks, and the return of fan favorites like the pistachio latte and cold brew

In Winter 2021, Starbucks released a pistachio latte with espresso, steamed milk, pistachio flavor, and brown-butter sprinkles.

It became a winter staple. Starbucks launched a new pistachio-flavored drink in 2023 after customers raved about the delicately sweet and nutty flavor.

Featuring sweetened vanilla cold brew, silky pistachio cold foam, and brown-butter sprinkles, Starbucks' pistachio cream cold brew was a hit with Instagram users, prompting calls for its permanent menu inclusion.

The iced hazelnut oat milk shaken espresso is another plant-based option on Starbucks' 2024 winter menu.

Similar to the 2022 iced brown sugar oat milk espresso, the new cocktail uses blonde espresso with hazelnut syrup.

 It's shaken, poured over ice, then topped with creamy oat milk for a cozy winter taste without heat.

The pistachio latte, cold brew, and iced hazelnut oat milk shaken espresso will be accompanied by two bakery goodies, available for a limited time while supplies last.

The "high protein, vegetarian option," potato, cheddar, and chive bake, contains cage-free eggs, diced potatoes, cheddar cheese, spinach, and chives.

Starbucks is also offering a vanilla bean custard Danish for sweet starters. The abandoned chicken, maple butter, and egg sandwich will return indefinitely.

Starbucks is making BYOC easier as it aims to eliminate disposable cups by 2030. Starting January 3, customers can use their own cup in the drive-thru or on the Starbucks app.

To reduce trash, receive the $0.10 cup discount, and earn Starbucks Rewards points without leaving the car.
