Order it hot, iced or as a Frappuccino® blended beverage. The Cinnamon Shortbread Latte is available for a limited time, while supplies last.

The winter Starbucks menu also features additional new flavors and classic favorites for customers to enjoy:

Choose Your Espresso

Whether you prefer smooth and subtle or rich and caramelly, there’s a Starbucks Espresso that’s perfect for you. Starbucks® Blonde Espresso – celebrating its one-year anniversary on our menu this January – is smooth and subtly sweet, making it perfect for unflavored beverages. Starbucks Signature Espresso on the other hand, is a dark roast with rich and roasty caramel sweetness. To taste for yourself, try asking for any of these customer-favorite beverages this winter:

With Blonde Espresso:

Starbucks Blonde Flat White: Subtly smooth ristretto shots of Starbucks Blonde Espresso are paired with the perfect amount of whole milk, creating a cup that's not too bold, not too creamy, but just right.

Iced Starbucks Blonde Americano: Espresso shots are topped with water to produce a light layer of crema then served over ice. This version is made with our Starbucks Blonde Espresso for a cup that is extra smooth, subtly sweet and nuanced.

With Signature Espresso:

Iced Caramel Macchiato: We combine our rich, full-bodied Signature Espresso with vanilla-flavored syrup, milk and ice, then top it off with caramel drizzle for an oh-so-sweet finish.

White Chocolate Mocha: Our Signature Espresso meets white chocolate sauce and steamed milk, then is finished with sweetened whipped cream in this white chocolate delight.
