Starbucks Releases Gin Barrel-Aged Cold Brew

  Starbucks Releases Gin Barrel-Aged Cold Brew One of the secrets to Starbucks’ success—beyond being on pretty much every street corner around the globe—is a willingness to jump on any and every trend. From beverages (make everything a Frappuccino!) to food (hello, avocado spread!) to tech (cashless stores, anyone?), Starbucks makes calculated forays into the concepts that intrigue customers. Their growing number of barrel-aged coffees is no exception: Barrel-aging has become extremely popular—if you haven’t had a barrel-aged beer, you’re not drinking enough beer—and last year, the ‘Bux decided to bring the idea to its cold brew with whiskey barrel-aged beans.

Last month, Apothic Wine announced it was getting in on the coolest trend in coffee — yes, you read that correctly. Just in time for summer, the wine brand introduced a limited release red wine which is infused with cold brew. The wine, which is called Apothic Brew, is now beginning to show up on store shelves and we got to try it.

If the idea of mixing two drinks that serve essentially opposite purposes gives you pause, you're certainly not alone. We had some reservations about Apothic Brew, too. While we enjoy drinking a nice glass of red wine to unwind at the end of a long day and can't get enough cold brew during summer, that doesn't necessarily mean the two beverages will taste good when put together. Our skepticism, however, was completely washed away once we took our very first sips.

Non-Alcoholic Rosé Is Here So Even More People Can #RoséAllDay

  Non-Alcoholic Rosé Is Here So Even More People Can #RoséAllDay Recently, however, we were surprised by a new kind of rosé drink. If it just crossed your mind that the most fun thing about rosé is its alcohol content and therefore a non-alcoholic rosé is pointless, we get where you're coming from. But, let's not forget that, for better or for worse, the trend has been adapted into many different foods that don't contain alcohol. Over the past several years, we've seen rosé doughnuts, rosé chocolate, rosé jelly, and more, and none of those items have the ability to get you drunk. They were appealing for other reasons.

Cold brew coffee is sweeping the nation. Have you tried it yet? CLICK HERE to subscribe to our weekly emails on finding and brewing amazing coffee! Devotees of nitro even claim that it tastes rather like milk chocolate. So you can enjoy a creamy, sweet, chocolate flavored coffee, without

It ' s brewed hot like your regular cup but at double strength, so when it ' s poured over (and melts) a pitcher of Though not really new at all, cold brew has gotten a lot hotter over the past few years. Because cold brew is made with cool water, it tastes slightly sweeter, a bit milder and way less

The smell that immediately emanates from the uncorked bottle of Apothic Brew transports you to your favorite local coffee shop. The scent is cold brew-forward, but it's complimented by a fruity smell as well. As for the wine's taste, it's definitely rich enough to be a dessert wine, but it's not overly sweet. We'd liken it to a port.

Apothic Brew has a mocha flavor to it that reminds us of a toned-down version of red wine hot chocolate — if you haven't had that home concoction, you're missing out. While it definitely tastes like you're drinking wine and not coffee, it is bold and smooth like a glass of cold brew. Because of that boldness and its mocha notes, the wine probably isn't the right drink to pair with dinner. We'd save it for an after-dinner drink and pair it with a lighter dessert like a fruit plate. Unlike cold brew, a glass of Apothic Brew will warm you up as red wine should, so it might not be exactly what you're looking for on a hot summer day. Still, our concerns about two rights making a wrong were unwarranted.

The limited edition wine is available now, so if the idea of indulging in two trendy beverages at once is appealing, be sure to grab a bottle before it gets way too warm outside.


Starbucks Is Adding Two New Drinks To Its Permanent Menu Tomorrow .
This morning, Starbucks made an exciting announcement that proves it is continuing to shift focus away from specialty drinks and back toward expanding its permanent menu. Tomorrow, the chain will introduce not one but two new cold coffee drinks to permanent menus nationwide. One is called the Salted Cream Cold Foam Cold Brew and the other is the Iced Vanilla Bean Coconutmilk Latte. We got to taste test both beverages, and though they might be around for the long haul, they're especially perfect for cooling down this summer.© Photo: Courtesy of Starbucks.
