Starbucks Introduces Their New Drinks for the Holiday Season


By Jenna Lewis, Sarah Park, Staff Writer

With the holidays coming up right around the corner, Starbucks finally presents its holiday drinks! Here is a sneak peek at their menu! Get one final sip of your last Pumpkin Spice Latte or Salted Caramel Mocha, and relax into the new Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte.  

This drink features a combination of sugar cookie–flavored syrup with Starbucks® Blonde Roast espresso and almond milk. Sounds good! Senior Carly Collins, a big fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte said, “The drink is very overhyped. It might have just been the way the barista made it, but I was not impressed.”

Starbucks is also bringing back the famous Peppermint Mocha! The drink features espresso, steamed milk, mocha sauce, and peppermint syrup. Julie Jenkins, a Senior from Wayne Hills, claims that “the peppermint mocha tastes exactly like chocolate. It is more of a hot chocolate than a coffee.” Over the years, this drink has really grown in popularity.

These drinks, when served hot, are presented in a variety of “present-themes” cups, varying from ribbon patterns, to gift tags. Starbucks also has a selection of reusable cups that are new to this holiday season. Some include a Color Changing Candy Cane Hot Cup, Pink Ombre Cold Cup, and Icy Bling Cold Cup.
