Starbucks Red Cup Season is Upon Us! / by Erin Baynham


Daylight savings time kicked my butt this morning. I was wide awake at 5:30, and absolutely craving a latte. I did the usual; cleaned, scrolled through Facebook, caught up on American Horro Story b/c I'm too scared to watch on Wednesday nights. While going through Facebook, however, I noticed something that would make my day skyrocket with delight. Red Cups! It's officially holiday season, y'all! For some reason, this cup makes my entire day better. I mean seriously, it's really smart branding. Even the cold cups have snowflakes on them.

There are also several holiday inspired drinks:

Caramel Brulée Latte: Espresso, steamed milk and rich caramel brulée sauce, topped with whipped cream and shimmery caramel brulée topping.

Chestnut Praline Latte: Inspired by the time-honored holiday tradition of warm roasted chestnuts, this cozy beverage features Starbucks® signature espresso and flavors of caramelized chestnuts, with freshly steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs.

Eggnog Latte: Espresso combined with steamed eggnog and milk and dusted with ground nutmeg.

Gingerbread Latte: The flavor of gingerbread combined with espresso and steamed milk. Finished with a topping of whipped cream and ground nutmeg.

Peppermint Mocha: Espresso and steamed milk sweetened with flavors of chocolate and peppermint, all topped off with whipped cream and chocolate curls.

Skinny Peppermint Mocha: A lighter version of Starbucks Peppermint Mocha made with nonfat milk, sugar-free peppermint syrup and skinny mocha sauce.

I'm a caramel macchiato girl through and through, and I can't wait to go over and get one today! Happy red cup (November/December) season!
