With a blink of an eye, the festive Christmas season is upon us and what better way to get the festivities started than with a jolly-themed beverage in hand? From the all-time Starbucks favourites to new and innovative concoctions by LiHo and Gong Cha, here’s a look at what you can expect to get on your next beverage run.
There’s nothing quite like a Starbucks Christmas beverage to remind us that the holiday season is here, especially when you see the return of popular favourites to the menu.
Besides indulging in returning holiday favourites Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Gingerbread Latte (each available from $7.60), an all-new Toffee Nut Crunch Cold Brew (from $7.20) will also be available, featuring Starbucks’ signature Cold New topped with a Toffee Nut Cold Foam made with milk and toffee nut syrup.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
This Christmas, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are kickstarting the festivities with an all-new seasonal treat — the indulgent Dark Chocolate Fudge Maple Ice Blended (only in small at $7.90). The beverage is a decadent chocolate treat with light notes of maple, topped with a fluffy maple whipped cream and chocolate drizzle.
Joining the new Christmas beverage are the returning holiday-inspired Peppermint Mocha and creamy Red Velvet (each available from $6.90) which will be made available from the week of 22 November 2021.
LiHO TEA has teamed up with Eureka Popcorn to bring you extra crunch and sweetness in their line-up of festive drinks this year. The drinks include the use of Eureka Popcorn’s premium Cereal + Butter Caramel Popcorn for a buttery, sweet and salty taste, and some crunch for added texture.
The line-up features Peachy Berry Shake (from $6.90) with fruity flavour notes from a blend of peaches and strawberries; Poppin’ Mint Shake (from $7.20) with its peppermint-like taste; and Poppin’ Hot Avocado (only available as a hot option at $6.90) with creamy avocado and custard pudding jelly.
If you’re someone with a sweet tooth, this might just be the perfect festive drink for you. In a partnership with Nestle, Gong Cha presents the all-new Milk Foam Choc-A-Lot ($6.80) which will be available for a limited time from 19 November to 31 December 2021.
The drink, inspired by hot chocolate, is served cold and features the use of the brand new KITKAT spread mixed with fresh milk, topped with milk foam and KITKAT Bites.
