It’s time to mount your broomsticks and head to the nearest Starbucks because the coffee shop now has a Butterbeer drink. And this time it’s on the official menu so baristas will have to make it.
The Smoked Butterscotch Latte, (a.k.a. the SBL), is made with smoked butterscotch sauce, steamed milk, and enough espresso to keep you alert even in the Triwizard maze – sorry Cedric, still too late for you though. It can be enjoyed over ice, blended, or hot; while not unlike Butterbeer in its flavor profile, the SBL doesn’t contain any alcohol (but no one’s stopping you from putting a fresh spin on the drink if you’re of age – except, maybe Professor Umbridge, because she’s the worst).
The drink actually debuted last winter for a limited run (ugh, did not get that owl!), but is back now, which is all that matters. It’s not clear how long the drink will stick around, though, so head over to your nearest participating Starbucks to sit back in one of those cushy chairs, sip away, and picture yourself in the Three Broomsticks with the Hogwarts crew.
