Forget the coveted PSL. We’re intrigued by Starbucks’ new concoction that combines a college student's two favorite things—coffee and beer.
This new Starbucks menu item, called the Espresso Cloud IPA, is Starbucks’ first official cocktail. According to Paste Magazine, the drink was created by Starbucks Coffee Master Justin Burns-Beach.
According to Grub Street, the drink is made by borrowing the foam of a shaken espresso, which is “laced with orange and vanilla," to make the head of the beer, or the foam on top. The espresso is then served in a shot glass alongside the beer, but Starbucks suggests that the espresso be poured over the beer to create the “espresso cloud.”
While this drink does sound amazing, it's only available at Starbucks Evenings locations—the stores that sell food and alcohol at night. If you have one near you, go try it! Otherwise, you may have to resort to a dorm room version of this concoction with Keurig coffee and whatever cheap IPA you can get your hands on. Yeah...it's not gonna be as good.
