Can you believe it’s the 20th anniversary of Pumpkin Spice Lattes? To celebrate, Starbucks Reserve® stores and Roasteries are offering limited edition pumpkin spice menu items for the very first time!
There are three new beverages in the line-up: a Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini, Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Barrel-Aged Iced Latte, and the Starbucks Reserve® Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL). Starbucks is also offering two new pumpkin food items: the Princi® Pumpkin Maritozzo, and a Princi® Pumpkin Caramel Mini-Bundt Cake.
I got a chance to try them all, and this is what I loved about each new pumpkin spice treat.
1. Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini
The Starbucks signature Espresso Martini is already famous, but this fall version is even better. I loved the flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and it’s even topped with a pumpkin spice whipped cream. Espresso lovers, rejoice!

2. Princi® Pumpkin Maritozzo
If you’ve never tried a maritozzo before, it’s a traditional Roman breakfast pastry. Starbucks elevated this even more with a soft, sweet brioche, and a delicious pumpkin spice cream. This was definitely my favorite bite of the day!

3. Pumpkin Spice Whiskey Barrel-Aged Iced Latte
One of my favorite unique drinks at the Starbucks Reserve® is their whiskey barrel-aged coffee. The coffee is aged in oak whiskey barrels, which helps absorb the whiskey flavors. And now, they have a pumpkin spice version!
The whiskey barrel-aged coffee is sweetened with a pumpkin spice sauce, mixed with milk over ice, and topped with a whiskey barrel-aged whipped cream. It’s truly the most delicious fall drink.
4. Princi® Pumpkin Caramel Mini-Bundt Cake
This pumpkin bundt cake is incredibly moist, and it’s complemented with a sweet caramel sauce and toasted pumpkin seeds.

5. Starbucks Reserve® Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL)
Always a classic, this version of the PSL uses Starbucks Reserve® espresso and a mix of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. You can order it hot or iced, and customize it with the milk of your choice!

All of the new pumpkin spice items are available exclusively at Starbucks Reserve® stores and Roasteries, including both locations in Seattle, through November 1, 2023.
Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!
