Ranking The Starbucks Holiday Drink Menu

Let the holidays commence, and by that, I mean, let us all rejoice in enjoying a nice latte from Starbucks! Ranging from gingerbread to pumpkin, to eggnog, here are my top six Starbucks espresso beverages for the holiday season!

Follow the countdown to see my top pick! 


6. Gingerbread Latte

Taking the number six spot is the gingerbread latte. Now, this latte, in my opinion, is for an acquired taste. If you like gingerbread, this one is all yours, but if that's not your go to, maybe try a different holiday flavor. Sorry, ginger!

5. Eggnog Latte

The eggnog latte is a sublime holiday beverage if that’s what you’re into, ya know what I’m sayin’? Miss Eggnog, in my opinion, is more of a once-in-a-while beverage, rather than an everyday go-to, but to each their own!

4. Peppermint Mocha

At number four is the classic, the festive, and the tasty peppermint mocha latte. Although this is a cult favorite flavor, the peppermint mocha from Starbs is just a little too chocolatey for my liking, but for all of you chocolate junkies, go off with this one, sis.

3. Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

Taking the third spot is the distant relative of the peppermint mocha, perhaps the estranged cousin, the peppermint white chocolate mocha. I ranked the white choc at number three because the consistency of this drink is more coffee-like and less chocolately, and that’s what I have been liking, ya feel?

2. Pumpkin Spice Latte

This decision was difficult, but I had to give the number two spot to an OG, the pumpkin spice latte. Despite all the scrutiny people give the PSL, this drink is truly amazing in my opinion and the only one of its kind from Starbucks. PSL, keep on servin’, we love you girl!

1. Chestnut Praline Latte

(Cue the drumroll and my big announcer voice) Coming in at number one is the chestnut praline latte! Now, this drink was a new one to me, I tried her a few weeks ago and can say that once again, sister Starbucks is stealing my coins with this babe! The chestnut praline is the perfect mix of savory and sweet, and she really is here to serve and slay this holiday season!

Well, there’s the tea on the holiday drink menu from Starbucks. No matter the season, Starbucks really just continues to steal my coins. We love you girl!
