With the start of a new year, Starbucks always features drinks that work well in the colder winter months. This lineup usually has new drinks and is a bit more low-key than other seasons. For 2023, Starbucks is again featuring pistachio, but with a new twist.

Starbucks, as of January 3, 2023, has brought back their pistachio drinks for the third year. “Pistachio is the perfect flavor to follow the holidays and carry us through the winter season,” said Rosalyn Batingan on the Starbucks beverage team. “Its smooth and sweet profile delivers a feeling of warmth and coziness, even when served cold.”
(If you want to make these pistachio drinks at home, I suggest ordering this pistachio syrup from Monin.)
The Pistachio Cream Cold Brew is Starbucks’ new addition to the pistachio-flavored lineup. They say of this drink, “The new handcrafted Starbucks Pistachio Cream Cold Brew features Starbucks® Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, and is topped with silky pistachio cream cold foam and salted brown-buttery sprinkles. The Pistachio Cream Cold Brew builds on customers’ love of the Pistachio Latte and the popularity of cold coffee year-round.”
You can also order a Pistacho Latte hot or iced, Frappuccino, or add the syrup to your own creation.
For food, Starbucks is also offering the returning Red Velvet Loaf. They say it is, “a delicious vanilla cake swirled with classic red velvet cake and topped with white chocolatey icing. ”
For coffee beans, Starbucks is bringing back the Tribute Blend. They say, “this popular whole bean coffee has tasting notes of black cherry and baking spices, highlighting the sweetest expressions of each origin.” It can be found in Starbucks cafes for purchase.
