Starbucks New Espresso Drinks Are Shaken, Not Stirred

Trending Now


Spring has sprung at Starbucks. The beloved brand recently announced its new spring menu—and now you can get a plant-based Shaken Espresso!

If you’re already a fan of Starbucks signature Shaken Iced Tea or Coffee, you’re in for a treat. On Mar. 2, the coffee retailer will debut an espresso Shaken option. Actually, Sbucks will debut two different Shaken Espresso menu items: The Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso and an Iced Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso.

Why switch from your traditional espresso drink to shaken version? Of the Shaken Espresso option, Alicia Binion, senior product developer on Starbucks beverage development team, said in a press release, “The fun thing about shaking is it adds another dimension to the beverage.” Binion added, “It creates a rich texture on your palate—by just adding air. When you take that first sip, you get a wonderful froth that is infused with flavor.”

The Iced Brown Sugar Oatmilk Shaken Espresso starts with a Starbucks Blonde espresso. The espresso is shaken together with brown sugar and cinnamon before it’s topped with oatmilk and ice. Binion described this drink, saying, “The delicate sweetness and the depth from the brown sugar pairs really well with the cinnamon and the Starbucks Blonde Espresso.”

Starbucks’ Iced Chocolate Almondmilk Shaken Espresso also features Blonde espresso—and includes cocoa, malt, almondmilk and ice. Binion noted, “It’s fun with a little bit of familiarity at the same time.”

Along with the two new flavored drinks, Sbucks fans can also try an Iced Shaken Espresso. This option combines a full-bodied espresso with two-percent milk.
