Gossip Girl Latte's Are Now A Thing. Yes Please!

September 26, 2019

Who cares that Gossip Girl hasn't been on the air in 7 years?  The guilty pleasure series originally ran on the CW September 19, 2007, to December 17, 2012 and it's not only binge worthy but every so often I'll just watch a random episode just because I can!  One trendspotter says Gossip Girl, "may well be the biggest influence in the youth culture market", and that is still true today.  So it's about time that Starbucks created a tasty beverage in honor of those wonderfully hideous, gorgeously bratty, self-absorbed socialites that we loved to hate.  The Gossip Girl Latte is sure to be as dramatic as the show considering you can't just go into Starbucks and order it by name.  Oh no....talk about pedestrian.

According to Bustle, The GGL is based on the Grande Cinnamon Dolce latte and they say it's easies to order in the Starbucks app. They say to "swap out two pumps of the Cinnamon Dolce Syrup for two pumps of Vanilla Syrup. Replace the sprinkles with Cinnamon Powder — in the words of Blair Waldorf herself, “You can’t wear such a beautiful shoe if there’s even a hint of a sprinkle outside.” Then, for a decadent twist, add Smoked Sea Salt Topping — because there's nobody saltier than a member of the Upper East Side elite who's been wronged."  LOL!!  

All I know is I'm gonna use National Coffee Day as an excuse to try one.  And I'm warning my barista right now that I don't have an ounce of class to my name so don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about when I order the GGL by name. Ha!
