(NBC) - Starbucks has a new handcrafted drink that mixes espresso and craft beer.

Called the Espresso Cloud IPA, it's made by shaking espresso over ice with orange pieces and vanilla.

As it's shaken, the espresso creates a cloud of foam that's then layered on top of an IPA after it's poured.

The beer is served with the cold-shaken espresso shot on the side, which can then be poured over the beer, creating a layered waterfall of espresso and craft beer in the glass.
