Holiday Beverages Are Back at Starbucks
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Move over pumpkin spice latte, it’s time for the eggnog latte, gingerbread latte, and more to shine. That’s right—it’s November 1st and that means the return of holiday beverages at Starbucks.
Starting today, you can have your pick of cozy holiday-inspired beverages. All the favorites are returning, from peppermint mochas to chestnut praline lattes. Take a look at what’s being offered in stores below, and their official descriptions.

There’s no word yet on when the red cups are set to return, but a Reddit user (and Starbucks employee) might have leaked the new design (check it out here). It hasn’t been confirmed by Starbucks, but you can see that these “red cups” are adorned with branches and holly for a wintry, natural design.
While you’re waiting for the red cups, you can enjoy your holiday beverage in a limited edition green cup (pictured below). They're not holiday-themed, but the cup was designed by artist Shogo Ota to celebrate community. The cup’s sketch features “a mosaic of more than a hundred people drawn in one continuous stroke.”
