Today Starbucks welcomes back the festive season with the launch of its first-ever colour-in Christmas cup, encouraging customers to add their own splash of colour and style to their drink. The beautifully hand-drawn cup features a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee connected by swirling ribbons with lively Christmas scenes and splashes of red and green.
The highly anticipated Christmas range of drinks includes returning favourites – the Gingerbread Latte, Toffee Nut Latte, Eggnog Latte and Fudge Hot Chocolate.
Brand new to Starbucks festive drinks line-up this year is Festive Cold Brew, combining a classic cold brew blend with subtle Christmas-spiced notes and finished with orange and cranberry pieces.
