Starbucks’ fan-created secret menus are full of layered drinks — like last week’s viral Matcha Pink Drink — but this week, the brand’s adding two ombré ones to its official menu, starting on Tuesday, Feb. 28: One chocolate-caramel combo, and one with a sweet, cinnamon roll-esque flavor.
The first, Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato, made its debut as an iced drink last summer, but this spring, it’s coming back with a hotter twist. Warm espresso shots are poured over coconut milk and white chocolate mocha sauce, then the whole thing’s topped with caramel and a swirl of mocha. It’s like melting a Rolo in a classic macchiato, only with denser foam on top. (And while Starbucks is promoting it warm, you can totally order it iced.)
The second drink is an Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Macchiato, espresso poured over a mix of almond milk and cinnamon dolce syrup that’s decked out with a caramel crosshatch and a sprinkle of — can you guess? — ground cinnamon. The almond milk makes it creamier and a little thicker than the typical iced drink, making it a strong alternative for Frappuccino lovers craving a lower-calorie, less sugary option.
They may not be as colorful as the rainbow drinks (which basically ruled everyone’s Instagram feeds last summer), but there is one perk: Since they’re official, you won’t have to worry about memorizing exactly how they’re made — or that your barista is silently cursing your name for ordering anything ridiculously complicated.
