Since the debut of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks will launch a new pumpkin-flavored drink. The coffee chain has introduced the new Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew which they will be selling alongside the popular PSL for those who want to enjoy the fall-themed drink without feeling too “basic.”
Lovers of cold brew coffee can now occasionally indulge in a bit of pumpkin spice. The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew layers the chilled coffee with vanilla and a pumpkin cream-flavored cold foam before it’s finished off with a dusting of pumpkin spice powder on top. It’s not too sweet, it’s not orange, and it’s a pumpkin spice drink you can actually take seriously.
However, there is a minor stipulation when it comes to the new drink and that is it can’t be made with dairy-free milk options — like almond milk or coconut milk — due to its construction and the ingredients Starbucks uses to make its signature cold foam. Don’t worry, though: If you’re craving that jubilant pumpkin flavor, standard PSLs can be made with alternative kinds of milk.
Starbucks said that cold drinks (like a cold brew) account for more than half of its sales, so the arrival of a pumpkin-infused cold brew makes perfect sense.
