Every year during the festive season, Starbucks releases a variety of delicious new drinks. Just this week, Starbucks came out with these very drinks, and they are already putting people in the Christmas spirit. Starbucks has definitely done an amazing job putting holiday spirit on their menu.

“I really enjoyed trying the Peppermint Mocha because it is something to keep me warm when it is cold outside, and I can drink it while watching Hallmark Christmas movies,” Junior Brytn Leon said.

This signature Espresso Roast combined with sweet mocha sauce, and peppermint-flavored syrup, is perfect for if you want to enjoy an actual coffee drink that tastes like Christmas in a cup.

The Gingerbread Chai Latte, is a great choice for someone who might not be a fan of coffee, but still would like one of the new Starbucks drinks. It can also be good if you love the flavor of gingerbread in general. 

“I’m a fairly picky eater. so coffee and chai drinks are not something that are particularly my favorite. but Starbucks has the seasonal Signature Hot Chocolate. This drink is perfect for me when it’s cold outside and I want something to keep me warm,” Junior Jack Jones said. 

For someone who is not a lover of coffee, and chai drinks, just a simple hot chocolate is the perfect option.

“When I go to Starbucks, I enjoy getting some of the treats they have. During the Christmas season, they have a Gingerbread Loaf. I absolutely love the taste of gingerbread so this treat is amazing,” Junior Lulu Hawkins said. 

Not only do they have festive drinks, but also festive treats for people to enjoy. These treats include the Gingerbread Loaf, the Peppermint Brownie Cake Pop, and the Snowman Sugar Cookie. 

These fantastic drinks never fail to bring people joy during the winter season. No matter if you’re a coffee lover, just want a simple hot chocolate, or want to get into the holiday spirit, these drinks are perfect for you!
