Starbucks Reserve Debuts Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini And Other Fall Treats

Fall is nearly here and that means the weather is cooling down, and more importantly, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is headed back to Starbucks. But this year looks a little different because six Starbucks Reserve locations are serving pumpkin spice beverages for the first time. Per a press release sent to Tasting Table, the locations are serving an array of autumnal beverages and snacks including their own version of the PSL, starting on Thursday, August 24 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic seasonal latte.

We're most excited about one particular menu item: the Starbucks Reserve Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini — a combination of two of the arguably most popular drinks these days. The cocktail combines their signature espresso martini (made of espresso, vodka, vanilla bean syrup, and dark chocolate) with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove topped with pumpkin spiced whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin pie seasoning. You can enjoy the beverage at Starbucks Reserve locations in New York, Chicago, and Seattle.

More additions to the fall menu

Starbucks Reserve isn't stopping there with its fall menu additions. Other beverages include the Starbucks Reserve Pumpkin Spice Latte we mentioned earlier, which is made with the Reserve's signature espresso and can be ordered both hot or iced. If you like the taste of whiskey, you can try the Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Barrel-Aged Iced Latte made with espresso, milk, pumpkin sauce, plus whiskey-barrel aged coffee and whipped cream.

Do you prefer snacks over drinks? There are two more treats being added to their menu for you, foodie. First is pumpkin spice cake from Princi Bakery (an artisanal Italian bakery that partnered with the iconic coffee chain). It's a pumpkin spice cake topped with caramel sauce, toasted pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch, and adorned with a Princi chocolate square. And the final addition is Pumpkin Maritozzo, a brioche bun stuffed with pumpkin-spiced mascarpone cream and dusted with powdered sugar.
