Holidays are here which means holiday drinks at Starbucks are here. 

The holiday drinks at Starbucks became available on November 4. The chain has not yet released or said when the holiday menu will end.

Some holiday Starbucks drinks will not be available this year, like the fan favorite EggNog latte. The chain tweeted on Wednesday, November 3, that it will not be returning this year. 

Starbucks is adding new drinks and food to their holiday menu. Starbucks added: the Reindeer cake pop and the Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte. Starbucks brought back: the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and the Irish Cream Cold Brew.

I went to Starbucks and tried some of the holiday drinks (Yes, I ordered them iced, I like iced coffee) and ranked them from favorite to least favorite.

I liked that everything is balanced in this drink so it is not too much or too little of everything.  I rate this a 4.7/5.  

Iced Chestnut Praline Latte

I liked how the nut does not overpower the coffee so you could taste both. I rate this a 4.5/5.

Iced Toasted White Chocolate Mocha

I liked the flavor of the whipped cream and the pink things on top of it. I rate this a 4.3/5.

I don’t like that it tasted just like like Almond milk. I was expecting a mix of things. I rate this a 3.5/5.

Iced Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

I like that it does not have a strong flavor of peppermint in it. I rate this a 4/5.

Overall, I feel that Starbucks should add more holiday drinks. What’s your favorite Starbucks holiday drink? Write in the comments below.
