The holidays are a time for family, friends — and red cups! Whether you’re looking for something classic or something new, Starbucks has you covered. Here’s a look at the Starbucks holiday drinks and cups for 2022.
If you’re a fan of the taste of candy canes and hot espresso, this is the drink for you.
A Holiday Starbucks Drink Tradition
This festive drink has been a holiday favorite for 20 years, and that’s no surprise. Setting the tone with rich flavors of espresso, chocolate and the refreshing taste of peppermint, the Peppermint Mocha is the first Starbucks coffee drink you should order this holiday season.
The History of the Peppermint Mocha
The Peppermint Mocha first appeared on the Starbucks menus in 2002, quickly becoming one of the most popular holiday drinks of ALL TIME.
Made with espresso, steamed milk, mocha sauce and peppermint-flavored syrup, it’s topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate curls.
It’s no wonder the Peppermint Mocha has become the holiday staple at Starbucks.
Caramel Brûlée Latte
Caramel lovers, this one’s for you!
If you’re a fan of caramel, then you’re in for a treat with the Caramel Brûlée Latte from Starbucks.
This rich and creamy latte is made with espresso, steamed milk and flavored with caramel brûlée sauce. It gets topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with pieces of crunchy caramel brûlée.
What Makes the Caramel Brûlée Latte So Special?
The sweet and rich sauce gives Caramel Brûlée Latte a unique flavor and a beautiful caramel-colored appearance.
If you’re a fan of caramel, you MUST try the Caramel Brûlée Latte.
Chestnut Praline Latte
The “No Regrets” Starbucks Holiday Drink
The Chestnut Praline Latte serves up a robust nutty flavor that will leave you wanting more when you reach the bottom of your cup.
The best part?
It’s not super sweet, so you can enjoy all the flavor notes without feeling overloaded with sugar.
If you’re someone who shies away from super-sweet drinks, this is an excellent choice for you. To further reduce the sweetness, you can pass on the whipped cream.
If you are a fan of cold coffee drinks or fraps, you can capture a similar taste by adding Chestnut Praline flavor to an iced coffee or by ordering a Chestnut Praline Frappuccino.
Trust us — you’ll have NO regrets!
