The holiday season is officially upon us and for the 2021 season, Starbucks is making sure that everyone can enjoy a delicious latte. Introducing their newest addition to the holiday menu, a non-dairy latte.
So what exactly is this new latte? According to a press release from Starbucks, starting on November 4, customers will be able to get their hands on the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte. It is a non-dairy latte that is apparently inspired by a classic Christmas cookie called the Spritz (this cookie gets its name from the German word spritzen). For those unfamiliar with this cookie (or at least the name), these are cookies that are made by “squeezing the dough through a cookie press into festive shapes.”
Think of this as a melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookie made liquid. And then add in the flair that makes Starbucks lattes so special.

So how do they make this new latte, which is available in both hot and iced varieties? According to the company,
"The non-dairy iced beverage is made with sugar cookie flavored syrup, combined with Starbucks Blonde Espresso, almondmilk, and topped with red and green cookie sprinkles. It is just as delicious hot, with steamed almondmilk and a cap of foam with sprinkles."
Not only is this a delicious option for people looking to avoid dairy, but this is also a delicious treat as a holiday drink in general. We are always looking for new drinks to get us through the holidays, and this sounds like a perfect addition to the Starbucks seasonal lineup.
And honestly, this sounds like a perfect sip while actually baking up sugar cookies and decorating them for holiday parties and gatherings.
