You know that the most wonderful time of the year is near when Starbucks unwraps their red cups. Just like every Starbucks lover, I get excited over their Christmas drinks infused with warm and rich goodness. Correct me if I’m wrong but there are only four holiday drinks this year, so I decided to review three of them minus the Egg Nog Latte because I don’t like egg nog. I also do not prefer straight up coffee so the mochas and lattes were perfect for me.
I did not drink all three in a day because I know that my body can’t handle so much caffeine at once. Don’t drink too much coffee, guys!
The first one I had was the “Caramel Brulee Latte” in which it appeared as “Caramel Latte” on the cashier’s screen. No doubt that this is the caramel latte with the exception of caramel brulee bits on top.
The “Peppermint Mocha” is my favourite in their holiday drinks. When a drink is concocted out of espresso, peppermint flavoured syrup, steamed milk, and mocha sauce…you basically have Christmas in your mouth. The peppermint syrup also left a cooling sensation in my mouth.
Lastly we have the “Gingerbread Latte” which I think they should sprinkled real gingerbread bits on top. I was slightly disappointed when they only drizzled gingerbread flavoured syrup on top but I guess molasses will do. I also thought that this drink was watered down and I couldn’t taste the festive richness in it.
