Primary Menu

When we were kids, we couldn’t wait for Santa Claus to drop down the chimney with presents every Christmas. As adults, we’re just as happy counting down the days until the new Starbucks holiday cups arrive. Well, we can stop counting. Glamour reports that Starbucks has rolled out their seasonal cups and holiday menu for 2021.

According to the coffee giant’s official announcement, this year’s cups come in four designs featuring “festive colors of red, green and white with playful touches of lilac.” Each of the new Starbucks cups also has a gift tag on the back, making them the perfect way to share a delicious holiday greeting. The four designs are:

  • Candy Cane – featuring green, white, and lilac candy stripes and the Starbucks word mark.
  • Holiday Light – sparkling holiday lights with a swirl of ribbons and a jumble of bold, graphic letters that spell out “Starbucks.”
  • Ribbon – featuring “pieces of ribbon in white and glittery lilac playfully dancing against a red field of sparkles.”
  • Wrapping Paper – a colorful geometric pattern with sparkles and glitter grain in the season’s signature shades.

As for what we’ll be putting in those Starbucks cups, this year’s holiday drinks include:

  • Caramel Brulee Latte – A blend of espresso, steamed milk, and caramel brulee sauce, and topped with whipped cream and caramel brulee bits.
  • Chestnut Praline Latte – A combination of espresso, steamed milk of your choice, and chestnut praline syrup, topped with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs.
  • Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte – This year’s new addition, it’s a non-dairy iced beverage made with sugar cookie flavored syrup, combined with Starbucks Blonde Espresso, almondmilk, and topped with red and green cookie sprinkles. (Can also be served hot)
  • Irish Cream Cold Brew – Cold brew spiked with Irish cream syrup, topped with vanilla sweet cream cold foam and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.
  • Peppermint Mocha – Returning for its 19th year, it’s made with espresso, steamed milk, mocha sauce, and peppermint syrup, with a topping of whipped cream and dark chocolate curls.
  • Toasted White Chocolate Mocha – Espresso, toasted white chocolate sauce, your steamed milk of choice, and topped with whipped cream and festive sprinkles.
