As fall gives way to winter, are you afraid your daily pumpkin spice latte will still feel too autumnal? Maybe it’s just a little too … basic? For those suffering the PSL blues, Starbucks says its newest creation — a chestnut praline latte — will land in stores on November 12. As you might glean from the name, it’s a latte with chestnut praline syrup, whipped cream, and praline crumbles, and “the first new holiday handcrafted beverage in five years” to boot, so the company’s surely going to be peddling it hard all season, meaning you probably aren’t in danger of missing out.

The drink went head-to-head in a trial phase with the cherries jubilee mocha last year, and has now emerged victorious — people who’ve had one of the test versions note a distinct Graham cracker taste, for what that’s worth.
