Although it's only been a few days since Starbucks unleashed a bold new twist on its blended Frappuccino drinks, the coffee giant has already unveiled yet another new drink, and this time, it puts a refreshing twist on a classic espresso beverage. With coconut milk.
The new drink, aptly dubbed the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, is Starbucks' first iced espresso drink to include coconut milk since Starbucks added the popular dairy alternative to its menu. It'll arrive in Starbucks locations across the US and Canada on Tuesday, July 12th, along with the new Teavana Shaken Iced Berry Sangria Herbal Tea (we'll get to that in a minute).
In a press release, the company describes the new macchiato (which means "marked" in Italian) as, "espresso shots poured over chilled coconut milk and combined with a hint of white chocolate mocha sauce. The beverage is finished, or marked, with caramel sauce in a double crosshatch pattern and a swirl of mocha sauce to create five layers of espresso sweetness."
But, of course, that's not the only new summer-oriented drink Starbucks has up its non-existent green apron sleeves.
