Starting today, November 3, 2016, the new Spice Sweet Cream Cold Brew is available at Starbucks. It showed up on the Starbucks app today:
The official Starbucks notification is here.
The Starbucks Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a delicious, cold, subtle spice and sweet coffee drink. I think this is a noticeably very sweet drink - you might even want to ask for it with fewer pumps of the spiced syrup sweetener.

Starbucks Rewards members are receiving emails, notifying them of early access to this new drink. Of course, once it's out, it's out - it won't be advertised until later in November, but if you ask for the Spiced Sweet Cream Cold Brew, the answer should be an easy 'yes' - it's on the app, the syrup is in stores, and stores should want the sales! You definitely can pick up the hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and spice in it.
While it is a new holiday beverage, it's a cold drink. Don't expect it to come in a red or green cup.
Cold brew is a slow-steeped coffee, made without heat. You can make cold brew at home easily with just a big pitcher, a great Starbucks coffee, filtered water, and a sock: The Cold Brew Coffee Sock.
Officially, this beverage launches later this month.
I like this new drink! Hope you get to try it soon!
