HOUSTON – Starbucks is out with a new holiday drink called the Juniper Latte

The drink is described this way by Starbucks: “Our signature espresso and steamed milk mingle beautifully with juniper syrup. This beverage has a light, pine-like flavor with delightful citrus undertones. We cap this latte with velvety foam and accentuate the remarkable flavor with a dusting of pine-citrus sugar.”

Whether you want to consume pine is up to you.

The official ingredients list is as follow: Milk, Brewed Espresso, Juniper Syrup [Demerara Sugar, Cane Sugar, Natural Flavor, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid], Pine Citrus Sugar [Sugar, Powdered Sugar (Sugar, Cornstarch), Natural Flavors, Spices, Color (Spirulina, Pumpkin, Apple, Red Cabbage, Turmeric)].
