It’s been a tradition of mine to really look forward to the annual Christmas Drinks at Starbucks. Every year, they have Pepper Mint Mocha, Toffee Nut Latte and one surprise variant. This year we have their newest drink: Christmas Cookie Latte. At first I thought it might just be a renamed version of their previous Gingerbread Latte (which I’m not fond of). So if you’ve been wondering what it is or how it tastes like, then you’ve come to the right place.
No it’s nothing close to the spice of the infamous Gingerbread Latte way back. It has this light and buttery taste that’s palatable especially for those who are not into strong variants. Imagine butter cookies and milk blended together topped with cookie crumbs and caramel syrup. For me it’s like a creamier and lighter version of a Caramel Frappucino.
