'Peet's Coffee & Tea' recently announced that it will be adding a Salted Caramel Macchiato to its holiday menu. When it comes to holiday drinks, most consumers immediately think of flavors such as peppermint and gingerbread. However, salted caramel is quickly becoming a staple of the holiday season.
In addition to returning favorites such as the Peppermint Mocha, the Eggnog Latte and the Cinnamon Hazelnut Latte, Peet's will now offer a Salted Caramel Macchiato. The handcrafted drink is made from buttery caramel, fresh espresso and a hint of vanilla. The drink is then finished with a sprinkling of French grey sea salt, which provides the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Although the drink is available hot, it can also be served over ice or blended into a thick shake. The iced version offers a more refreshing way to enjoy the decadent combination of caramel and fresh espresso.
Peet's new Salted Caramel Macchiato offers a slightly different take on the ultra-sweet drinks that tend to dominate the holiday season.
