Just like little kids wait for Santa’s visit, every year we bite our nails in anticipation for the release of Starbucks’ Seasonal menu. The minute one of those festive cups is spotted, we don’t walk or run – we BOLT to the nearest store. Hey, we need fuel to keep our style mission going on! Tried and tested by our self-proclaimed experts, here is the roundabout of the best drinks to sip on this season. Cheers to those holiday red cups!

HOLIDAY SPICE FLAT WHITE
If you are a bit of a purist when it comes to coffee, you will definitely enjoy the Holiday Spice Flat White. That’s because it’s your traditional version of a smooth espresso combined with frothy milk and the slightest touch of spices – just enough for a little warmth.

SPICED SWEET CREAM COLD BREW
The temperatures may have dropped but it doesn’t mean you need to forego a nice cold brew. If you’re an iced coffee lover, try the Spiced Sweet Cream version. And if you aren’t a coffee lover at all, still give it a shot. Why do you ask? Cold brews are much less acidic than warm brews. Along with the added cream and spices, this is basically liquid-form dessert with a dash of caffeine. Yum!

PEPPERMINT MOCHA FRAPPUCCINO
We have pledged lifelong devotion to Starbucks fraps. And when they go ahead and combine peppermint to a favorite, it’s just too much for our little hearts. While the mocha adds all the chocolatey goodness and milk keeps it creamy, the peppermint kicks in to offer a refreshing aftertaste. So good and addictive!

PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE
The fall season is nearly over, but this drink cannot go unmentioned. Ladies and gentlemen we present the one and only: Pumpkin Spice Latte. Traditional espresso, milk and true pumpkin spice. We’re gulping one after the other before they’re gone – we suggest you do the same.

SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA
Some culinary mastermind discovered a dash of salt is exactly what caramel needed all along. Starbucks wasted no time and brought us the chance to drink up this delicacy with the Salted Caramel Mocha. It’s hard to get any better than mocha sauce, toffee syrup, coffee and salted caramel over whipped cream.

CHRISTMAS COOKIE LATTE
The perfect drink for all the cookie monsters out there. So creamy that it’s almost buttery, this warm beverage combines shortbread cookie sauce, coffee, and actual Christmas cookies crumbs on top. We kid you not! Make sure to try out the Christmas Cookie Latte.

HONEY AND ALMOND HOT CHOCOLATE
A nice cup of hot chocolate is good for the soul. Maybe it’s the nostalgic effect it brings? Starbucks sophisticated this classic just a tiny bit by adding mocha, almond syrup and a little drizzle of honey. What a treat this Honey and Almond Hot Chocolate is.

DARK CHERRY MOCHA
Few fruits are as festive as cherries. This winter staple has made its way to the Dark Cherry Mocha drink. If you prefer a richer and deeper flavor, this is the perfect choice with the bittersweet mocha sauce. Go fo it – the holidays are worth the indulgence!
