Starbucks still has a few surprises in store this holiday, starting with a wintry new beverage, Juniper Latte, which features a hint of juniper and sage, an evergreen aroma and citrus notes. Inspired by a Juniper holiday beverage that debuted last year exclusively at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, it is made with Starbucks signature espresso and steamed milk infused with juniper syrup and capped with velvety foam and a dusting of pine-citrus sugar.

Juniper Latte is available at participating Starbucks locations in the U.S. starting today (November 27) for a limited time, while supplies last. This beverage joins the line-up of Starbucks holiday espresso beverages like Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.
