Along with the announcement that it will begin serving nitrogen-infused coffee, Starbucks has also added the new Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew to its menu. In recent years, Starbucks has been making a concerted effort to expanded its cold beverage options. With the addition of this latest drink, consumers have an indulgent new way to enjoy cold brew coffee.

The new Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew drink is a twist on the chain's existing cold brew offering. The drink consists of cold brew coffee, which is made in small batches by slow-steeping coffee in cold water for about 20 hours. The lengthy process results in a brew that is smooth and rich, with a naturally sweet taste. The cold coffee is then mixed with vanilla sweet cream, which is poured across the top of the drink. The result is a sweeter and creamier version of cold brew, which is ideal for those who are looking to balance out the slightly bitter taste of coffee.
