Between holiday charcuterie boards, heart-shaped raspberry caramels and wine-tasting kits, there’s no shortage of deliciousness to fall for this Valentine’s Day. Next on our to-sip list? Two just-launched drinks from Starbucks that are equal parts indulgent, festive and (presumably) delicious.
You’ll Swoon Over Starbucks’s Valentine’s Day Menu, Starring Two New Drinks
It’s never too cold out for a Frappuccino
If you’re in need of caffeine, the Chocolate Hazelnut Cookie Cold Brew is the way to go. The roasty cold brew base is sweetened with hazelnut syrup before being topped with lush chocolate cream cold foam and, most importantly, chocolate cookie crumble topping. The hazelnut syrup likely emphasizes the natural nuttiness of the coffee. Factor in the chocolate, and we’d imagine it tastes like a liquid Ferrero Rocher.
If you want something coffee-free, go with the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Crème Frappuccino, a frosty twist on what’s arguably the most iconic Valentine’s Day dessert. A pink-swirled blend of ice, milk, strawberry purée and Java Chips is crowned with a bonus splash of strawberry purée and whipped cream for good measure. (To put it simply, it’s a Strawberry Crème Frappuccino with a hint of chocolate.)
As if that isn’t enticing enough, there’s even more to celebrate the occasion at your favorite coffee chain. Starbucks’s V-Day drinkware collection is already on shelves, and it includes tumblers, cold cups and more, all adorned with heart and floral designs.
