I'm always exhausted after ordering at Starbucks. Not only are there a million different ways to make a coffee over there, but you need to know all of their code words to get the exact coffee you want. Tall (which means "small"). Venti. Trenta. Frappuccino. Americano. Flat white. Skinny. Dry. Bone dry. Etc etc. And now there's more to add to the list: Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist.
Decoded, a Pepper Nitro with a Jerky Twist consists of: "Congo coffee, slow-steeped as cold brew and served on draft through a nitro tap, then infused with a sweet and savory malted fennel black pepper syrup. The beverage is topped with a layer of honey cold foam and finished with a sprinkling of cracked pink peppercorn and a bamboo skewer of natural beef jerky made with grass-fed beef," according to Starbucks.
But the drink, which sounds more like a tasty dinner appetizer, is only offered at the Seattle Reserve Roastery, and as a specialty cold drink, it might not be around for long.
