Soon you may be able to order a venti glass of Chardonnay, extra dry, with a splash of oak, because Starbucks is branching into the wine and spirits industry.

That’s right our beloved coffee giant, Starbucks is talking booze in the near future. The company wants to increase their night time traffic and what’s a better way to do so by adding beer and wine to the menu.

Starbucks has been testing out their new ‘grown up’ image at two different locations that don’t quite sport the Starbucks name yet. Refering to the stores as ‘living labs,’ Starbucks is testing out the concept of coffee by day and wine and beer at night.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I love Starbucks and if I can get my caffeine fix in the morning and get a buzz at night I would be HOOKED for life. Since the coffee company already has a cult-like following, I’m pretty sure they won’t have any problems branching into the wine and beer circuit. Free Wi-Fi+ great coffee+wine+beer= happy customers and A LOT of money.
