A little birdie told me a few weeks ago that this drink was coming, so I’d been waiting to see it pop up on the menu. When I saw it, I couldn’t wait to try it out, especially since I’m a huge fan of the Dutch Bros drinks using chocolate macadamia nut syrup.
So, today I’m sharing what it looks like, what’s in it, how to order it, and what it tastes like. Let’s get sippin’
Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew
This drink is light, refreshing, and a fun twist on the other drinks featuring flavored sweet cold foam. To make it, they use the Starbucks cold brew which is steeped in cold water for 20+ hours and sweeten it with macadamia syrup, before topping it with a delicious white-chocolate macadamia cream cold foam and top it with toasted cookie crumbles.
If you haven’t had the Starbucks cold foam, it is a pillowy, velvety cold foam that is the perfect texture. It’s easy to recreate at home if you have heavy cream, milk or milk substitute, and syrups to sweeten. Starbucks has perfected the cold foam and has made it with lots of flavors, such as: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, pumpkin cream, cinnamon caramel and lots of seasonal flavors.
How to order the Starbucks White Chocolate Macadamia Cream Cold Brew:
Good news, this is a menu item now, so you don’t have to do anything special here. Simply order the drink the way it is shown above and adjust for size (tall, grande, or venti) and any other substitutions.
I thin it’s sweet enough as is, if you drink it through the cup lid and don’t use a straw. If you use a straw, you’ll get a really strong cold brew flavor on the bottom and then when you get to the top, the sweet cream will be too sweet. So, either mix it all together or sip it without a straw.
