Starbucks concocts new winter drink and contest with 30 years of free drinks up for grabs – USA TODAY


Move over eggnog, peppermint, gingerbread and chestnut, there’s a new winter drink in town.

Starbucks has added the Juniper Latte to its seasonal lineup.

The coffee giant announced Tuesday the wintry espresso beverage featuring a hint of juniper and sage is now available for a limited time at participating locations, while supplies last. The drink debuted last year at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle.

Other holiday drinks available since early November include the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.

Starbucks also announced Tuesday the return of its popular Starbucks for Life contest where prizes totaling $1.6 million are up for grabs.
