What to order: Nitro Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam
As springtime is just around the corner, Starbucks is creating new recipes that are really delicious and exciting. The new featured Nitro Cold Brew with Salted Honey Cold Foam is a great mixture of nitrogen infused cold brew with a sweet but salty honey syrup. Starbucks is known for their line of cold foams, often creating new cold foams for each season of the year. Starbucks went out of their way to make this cold foam actually taste like a sip of springtime.
Starbucks starts out with a regular nitro cold brew recipe but only fills the cup about halfway to leave room for the delicious cold foam. The cold foam is a cream recipe that helps mellow the intense coffee taste of the cold brew. The nitrogen that’s infused with the cold brew also makes the cold brew taste less like coffee and smoother. The honey cold foam is created by frothing whole milk while mixing honey in. This leaves the honey’s texture a little lighter, and not as thick as it is off-the-shelf. This gives the frothed milk a sweet residue of sticky honey creating a delicious aroma of honey and milk. Finally, the cold brew is topped off with a sprinkle of sea salt.
While there were other tempting springtime drinks to choose from, this one is a great option if you’re in the mood for a cool, refreshing coffee blend. Be sure before you order that you are not sensitive to caffeine as the caffeine content is higher in nitrogen-infused coffees. If you are sensitive to caffeine you can ask for the cold foam over most drinks. I highly recommend giving this drink a try. It felt like it was springtime in a cup and felt perfect as the sun was shining. This is a drink that you will want to have every time you have coffee.
