One of the best things about the holidays is all of the festive holiday drinks! It’s the perfect excuse to grab a friend and catch up over a steaming beverage.
For the holidays, Starbucks has some new and old festive drinks that I’m just dying to try.
Starbucks Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew
Nariño 70 Cold Brew coffee is slow steeped for 20 hours, then festively spiced and finished with a float of house made sweet cream to create an exclusive, elegant iced holiday beverage.
Starbucks Holiday Spice Flat White
Back for it’s second year, the Starbucks Holiday Spice Flat White is handcrafted with bold, spicy ristretto shots of Christmas Blend Espresso Roast and a blend of mulling spices, including finely ground sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and a touch of tangerine. It’s then topped with steamed whole milk into creamy micro-foam and carefully poured to allow the espresso and spices to rise to the top of the beverage for a bold coffee flavour with a sweeter finish.
Starbucks Chestnut Praline Latte
Inspired by the time-honoured holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts, this cozy beverage features Starbucks® signature espresso combined with freshly steamed milk and flavours of caramelized chestnuts and spices. The drink is then finished with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs for crunch.
My personal favourites are below!
Starbucks® Gingerbread Latte
Enjoy the flavours of freshly baked gingerbread combined with espresso and steamed milk. This holiday beverage is now topped with spice-infused whipped cream prepared with cinnamon, cloves and ginger and finished with a real molasses drizzle. The new Gingerbread Latte is sure to take you on a trip down memory lane to holidays past.
Teavana Joy Tea Blend
This Tea Blend only comes around once a year. A Teavana update to a Tazo favourite, the boldness of black tea, soothed by sweet oolong and softened by the floral notes of jasmine green tea, creates a lavishly layered cup.
Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? I also love their limited edition mugs. In honor of Canada’s 150th anniversary, they are releasing the first limited edition Canada Tumbler. I’ve gotten my hands on the new Canada Double Wall Tumbler for a lucky reader!
