Starbucks Holiday Drinks

Happy Friday! 
So 2015 felt like Starbucks's biggest year yet. Didn't it? Not only did they release a large number of new Frappuccino flavors, but they also came out with an evening menu featuring cheese plates and wine. UHM WHAT!? The world-famous pumpkin spice latte recipe was reinvented, they came out with new Fall-themed cups and most recently, got the red cup trending worldwide due to their plain and simple design this year. Damn, you go Starbs!
So it's safe to say that this year was nothing less than an exciting one for the coffee chain. They did not release any new drinks for the Christmas season, however they did bring back the Eggnog Latte which everyone is currently talking about. I personally have not tried it yet. I literally hate the taste of eggnog so that's what is holding me back, but one day I just need to order a tall and see for myself. That's what happened last year with the Chestnut Praline latte. After I finally worked up the courage to try it, I loved it so much that it became my favorite hot drink of all time. I'm ready for some caffeine. NOW.

This years holiday drinks include: 

Caramel Brulee Latte - Espresso with steamed milk and caramel brulee flavored sauce, topped with whipped cream and caramel brulee topping. 
***Chestnut Praline Latte - Espresso with steamed milk and caramelized chestnuts mixed with subtle holiday spices, topped with whipped cream and spiced praline crumbs. 
Christmas Cookie Latte - A buttery creamy latte infused with shortbread cookie sauce, topped with whipped cream, shortbread cookie drizzle, and butter cookie crumbs. 
Eggnog Latte - Real eggnog mixed with steamed milk and espresso, topped with whipped cream and ground nutmeg. 
Peppermint Mocha -  A classic mocha with peppermint syrup, topped with whipped cream and festive red sprinkles. 
***Gingerbread Latte - Espresso with steamed milk and shots of gingerbread syrup topped with whipped cream and ground nutmeg.
Toffee Nut Latte - A freshly steamed latte with toffee nut syrup and crunchy toffee sprinkles. 
The Pumpkin Spice Latte - Espresso with pumpkin flavored syrup and steamed milk topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice. 
Salted Caramel Mocha - Espresso and steamed milk combined with mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup topped with whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt.

[All of the drinks listed above can be made hot, iced, or blended.]
