Interesting facts about Naruto Starbucks

  • The Naruto Starbucks Cocktail is a fusion of Japanese and American flavors.
  • It's inspired by the popular anime character Naruto Uzumaki.
  • Despite its name, it doesn't contain any actual Starbucks coffee.


  • Coffee: 2 oz(60ml)
  • Sake: 1 oz(30ml)
  • Vanilla syrup: 1 oz(30ml)
  • Ice: As needed


We use a strong brew to pack a punch and provide a robust base for our Naruto Starbucks cocktail. Without it, you'd miss out on the depth and bitterness that balances the sweet vanilla. If you opt for a weaker coffee, you're looking at a less intense flavor profile and perhaps a less energized shinobi.

This traditional Japanese alcohol provides a unique umami and subtle sweetness, making it a harmonious companion to the coffee. Less sake and you lose that intriguing edge; too much, and you overpower the delicate dance of flavors. An alternative could be soju for a lighter, but similar, kick.

Vanilla Syrup

Sweet and comforting, the 1oz of vanilla syrup counters the bitterness of the coffee and adds a smooth finish. Omitting it would make for a sharper, possibly too bitter cocktail. Swap it for almond or hazelnut syrup if you're feeling nutty about flavor adjustments.

As needed, to chill and subtly dilute the cocktail for a smooth sip. Without ice, you might as well be in the Hidden Leaf Village on a hot day with no relief in sight. Plus, the dilution balances the strength of the coffee and the alcohol.

Perfect Pairings


  • Chocolate Delights: The silky vanilla notes and the boldness of the coffee in the Naruto Starbucks cocktail pairs wonderfully with chocolate-based desserts such as brownies or chocolate lava cake. The bitterness of the chocolate is balanced by the sweetness of the vanilla syrup in the cocktail.

  • Savory Snacks: Appetizers like Japanese Izakaya-style skewers or Tempura would complement the umami of sake and the robust coffee flavor. Try pairing with grilled meats or vegetable tempura for an interesting contrast.

  • Cheese Plates: A selection of cheeses, especially those of medium intensity such as Gouda or mild Cheddar, can be nicely cut through by the acidity in the coffee and the distinctive taste of sake.

Coffee or Tea

  • A non-alcoholic option like Matcha Latte or Hojicha would go alongside for those who'd fancy a caffeine comparison without additional alcohol.
