Your latest Starbucks obsession is officially here. Move over Pumpkin Spice Latte because the Smoked Butterscotch Latte is in town! Smooth buttery flavor combines with caramel sweetness to bring you your new favorite drink order because somehow this coffee company just gets you, doesn’t it?
Unfortunately, all good things come to an end because this new drink will only be around for a limited time. It’s available to purchase at Starbucks now through March 21, but what if this leaves you craving butterscotch long after the drink is no longer around? Well, there’s good news.
Starbucks took to Pinterest to post a recipe of how you can create the SBL right at home. With this knowledge, you can skip the line and continue making this drink long after the limited time offer has expired.
All you need to have to make your very own butterscotch coffee is a little sugar, some butterscotch chips and Starbucks VIA Instant Caramel Latte. Because the coffee is instant, you can easily make this on your way out the door in the morning (or anytime you need a pick-me-up, for that matter) without having to actually take the time to brew yourself a pot of coffee.

Possibly the best part of this drink is that it tastes great hot or iced. Depending on where you live (or your mood) you may want to switch up your order or how you make this drink at home. So, if you prefer an iced drink, there’s a recipe for that, too.
To make the iced version, swap the VIA Instant coffee for Starbucks cold brew coffee that you can buy at the grocery store. Instead of using butterscotch chips, butterscotch sauce adds all of the buttery sweetness you need to this cold version.
See how you can have a little iced butterscotch treat at home by following this recipe.
A little butterscotch goes a long way, and thanks to this new coffee recipe, you’re about to find just how much you’ve been missing this flavor in your life.
You don’t have to miss out on this new flavored beverage, and if it’s anywhere near as good as the Pumpkin Spice Latte, I can assure you, you’re not going to want to.
I don’t know about you, but I’m headed to buy a big bag of butterscotch chips right now because what can I say? I’ve got butterscotch on the brain.
