I always look forward to the seasonal drink offerings at Starbucks; they’re always a fun little treat! The winter season is always my favorite for trying their drinks though. The day that Starbucks releases its holiday drinks mine as well be a national holiday! Since I’ve tried a lot of their holiday drinks this year (and in years past!), I thought it would be fun to share some of the best options so you don’t have to try all ten yourself. This will also save you the annoyance of trying a drink and not liking it!
5 Starbucks Holiday Drinks to Try
Hot Chestnut Praline Latte
The hot chestnut praline latte tastes like Christmas. It’s nutty, it’s not too sweet, and it tastes like roasted nuts from a street cart. Talk about delicious! This latte is definitely one that you could make your new go-to order all winter long versus a one-time special drink since.
Hot Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte
If you like sweet coffee, this latte is for you! With four pumps of sugar cookie syrup (grande), the hot sugar cookie almond milk latte is good but very sweet. I think that the hot version is much more delicious than the iced version because the flavoring is much more subtle. I’d even recommend doing only one to two pumps of syrup to make it an everyday kind of beverage.
Starbucks peppermint mocha is a true classic and I will always get at least one every season. It gives warm and fuzzy vibes, especially if you’re spending the day doing Christmasy things. If you’re not a big fan of mocha but love peppermint mocha, I recommend getting your typical hot beverage and adding peppermint syrup to it!
Toasted White Mocha
If you love a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks, this holiday drink is calling your name! I love treating myself to this special toasted holiday drink. It has a more caramelized white chocolate flavor to it that’s good but not overly sweet.
Caramel Brûlée Latte
If you want a hot beverage that’s festive but could drunk year round (aka not too festive), the caramel brûlée latte is such a good option! It tastes very similar to a normal caramel latte and could definitely be drunk every day!
