Starbucks' Shaken Espresso Is A Cheaper, Stronger Latte Alternative

If you enjoy Starbucks iced caffè lattes but are craving more of a coffee kick, the iced shaken espresso might just become your new favorite drink.

The shaken espresso is sweeter and stronger. Not only that, but it's also cheaper: a grande iced latte is $5.25, while a shaken espresso is $4.45, depending on region.

An iced latte has 75 milligrams of caffeine in a tall, 150 in a grande, and 225 in a venti. If you need a coffee-fueled energy boost, this will do the trick.

The other difference is the eponymous shaking in the beverage's name, which gives you a deliciously creamy, cold espresso that will both wake you up and hit that sweet spot.
