Don't ever accuse Starbucks of low ambitions. The coffee company known for its insane Frappuccino creations, high-end roasteries, and whiskey barrel–aged cold brew is now topping a new coffee drink with a fun, salty snack: beef jerky.
The company is calling the specialty beverage the Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist, it's being offered exclusively at the chain's Seattle Reserve Roastery for a limited time.
"With the first sip, you get a hint of the honey cold foam and the aroma of the pink ground peppercorn," said Raegan Powell, of the Starbucks research and development team, in a press release. She helped design the new, weird coffee cocktail. "The real surprise is the salty savoriness of the jerky garnish, an exciting complement to the smooth and sweet finish of the nitro cold brew experience."
