In case you haven't heard by now, but I'm sure you soon will - Starbucks has released a trio of coffee flavored energy drinks called Starbucks Doubleshot Energy Drinks. The flavors are French Vanilla, Mocha and Coffee and the initial response has been overall very favorable. We recently had the opportunity to sample the entire trio and let me just tell you this, these drinks are very delicious ...
I'm surprised Starbucks waited this long to come out with a coffee based energy drink - this would seem like a no brainer especially given the success of other energy drinks out there such as Red Bull, Rockstar etc. The Doubleshot Energy drinks add ginseng, guarana and vitamins into the mix for a smooth, milky, sweet taste. My favorite was probably the Mocha, but again the Vanilla and Coffee are really good.
So in honor of a job well done, A Grandiose Blog has created a cocktail in honor of the new Starbucks Doubleshot Energy line - the Starbucks Doubleshot Cocktail.
- 2 oz Starbucks Doubleshot Energy Drink (coffee flavor)
- 1.5 oz Vodka (we used Zyr Vodka)
- 1 oz Milk (1% lowfat milk - hey I'm influenced by the vitamins and ginseng)
- 1/2 oz Grenadine
Shake all ingredients well in a Boston shaker filled with ice. Strain into a martini glass.
