This is not a drill, bestie — Starbucks’ holiday drinks and beverages are coming back to stores tomorrow on Thursday, Nov. 3! As an avid coffee drinker, this is a national holiday for me, and especially considering that the Peppermint Mocha is one of my favorite coffee drinks of all time. You better bet that on the morning of Nov. 3, I’ll be running to my nearest Starbucks to snag a Peppermint Mocha before they sell out to ring in the holiday season (see ya later, Halloween). I’m sorry, but whoever decided to combine mint and chocolate together one day deserves a raise. It’s just that good.
Holiday beverages at Starbucks are coming back, and they’re better than ever. Returning to stores nationwide is the Peppermint Mocha (obvi), Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha (another favorite of mine, if I’m craving something extra sweet), and the Irish Cream Cold Brew. All of these Starbucks holiday bevvies can be ordered hot or cold (except for the Irish Cream Cold Brew), making them perfect for whatever you’re in the mood for. IMHO, there’s nothing more comforting and festive than sipping on a hot grande Chestnut Praline Latte while walking through my neighborhood and looking at everyone’s holiday decorations — but if you want your drink iced, I respect that.
And, coming back for a second year is the fan-favorite Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte, which is dairy-free for all those lactose intolerant baddies out there (fun fact: my doctor once told me I’m lactose deficient, but here I am still eating cheese). The Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte combines blonde espresso, sugar cookie flavored syrup, and almond milk to make a delicious and yummy beverage, and it’s perfect to sip on if it’s still hot where you live but you want to get into the holiday spirit. Oh, and the drink is topped with red and green sugar cookie sprinkles — how cute is that?
Like drinking your coffee black? Couldn’t be me, but you do you. Starting on Nov. 3, Starbucks customers can also enjoy a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks’ Christmas Blend coffee in stores. The rich blend is packed with dark-roasted beans with sweet and velvety notes of spiced chocolate and spruce tips. It’s the perfect study break pick-me-up, trust me. Yum!
See y’all at Starbucks!
