Starbucks tests new drink options


Seattle – Starbucks is testing new drink options including handmade sodas and a coffee beverage known as “cold foam mocha.” As reported by the Starbucks Melody blog (which is not affiliated with the retailer), last month Starbucks began the second phase of a carbonated beverage test including proprietary root beer and ginger ale at select locations in Atlanta and Austin.

In addition, Starbucks stores in Nashville are piloting a drink called cold foam mocha, which consists of mocha, milk, espresso and ice poured over a cold foam that is prepared in advance in whipped cream canisters. The blog cautions that Starbucks frequently conducts local tests of new beverages and most of them do not make it to the national level.
