Are you in the mood for spring? Are you ready for the warmer weather?
Starbucks just unveiled its spring menu with three new refreshments. Starting March 3, fans can enjoy the chain's new Iced Golden Ginger, Ice Pineapple Matcha and Nitro Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam.
“We were inspired by Venice Beach and the California sun, reminiscent of a L.A. kind of vibe,” Kris Murray, product specialist for the Starbucks Beverage Research & Development team said.
The company wanted colorful beverages with a tropical twist. The drinks feature flavors like pineapple, ginger, turmeric and matcha.
The Iced Golden Ginger Drink includes pineapple, ginger and turmeric flavors that are shaken with coconut milk and ice.
“Its vibrant color and sunny flavors make you think of springtime,” Murray said.
The Iced Pineapple Matcha drink is made with matcha green tea, mixed with pineapple and ginger flavors, as well as coconut milk and ice.
“Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink is the perfect blend of pineapple and matcha with a hint of coconut,” Murray said. “At first sip, you get some of that pineapple flavor complimented by the coconut milk, with matcha and ginger flavors really shining through at the end.”
The third new item is the Nitro Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam. The drink is 40 calories for a grande, with 7 grams of total sugar.
“This beverage really showcases our coffee with just a touch of sweetness from the salted honey foam,” Matthew Thorton, product developer for the Beverage R&D team said.
