Starbucks holiday cups are back — and so are the drinks
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Starbucks rolls out its annual holiday menu tomorrow, Nov. 2. That means holiday cups are back, too, and you can fill them with the delicious flavored drinks, including Peppermint Mocha, Chestnut Praline Latte, this year’s newcomer, the Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai and other holiday favorites.
Holiday snacks and treats are also back, so if you need to feel a little festive, now’s the time to head to Starbucks and treat yourself to a seasonal beverage or bite.
The Starbucks holiday menu features old favorites and new classics
This year’s holiday menu has some staples returning — plus some treats we’re seeing for the very first time.
First up is the Peppermint Mocha, a longtime favorite that returns to the Starbucks holiday menu year after year. This drink features Starbucks signature Espresso Roast, steamed milk, mocha sauce and peppermint syrup. All are topped off with whipped cream and dark chocolate swirls. It’s the perfect festive flavor to get you in a holiday mood.
Also returning this year is the Caramel Brulée Latte, which features Starbucks signature Espresso Roast, steamed milk and caramel brulée sauce, topped with whipped cream and caramel brulée bits.
Holiday menu fans will be pleased to see the Chestnut Praline Latte is back, featuring the signature Espresso Roast, steamed milk and flavors of chestnuts and spices, all topped with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs.
And new this year at Starbucks locations where Oleato is served is the Oleato Gingerbread Oatmilk Latte, which comes with Starbucks Blonde Espresso and steamed oatmilk infused with Partanna extra virgin olive oil and gingerbread flavor, then finished with a dusting of ginger and citrus flavors.
The holiday menu is rounded out with iced and blended drinks, including the new Iced Gingerbread Oatmilk Chai and the Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, plus tasty holiday snacks like the Gingerbread Loaf, Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, Cranberry Bliss Bar, Snowman Cookie and Sugar Plum Cheese Danish.
