It’s a Starbucks tradition unlike any other: bringing back the coffee chain’s signature holiday drinks — and celebratory mugs.
Starbucks unveiled its holiday drink menu on Thursday. Classic drinks return to the menu, including the Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Roasted White Chocolate Mocha and Chestnut Praline Latte.
The menu also features the return of seasonal coffees such as the Christmas Blend and the Holiday Blend.
This year marks 25 years of Starbucks holiday cups, which were introduced in 1997. The company will introduce four new mugs to kick off the holiday season.
“We’ve always talked about the cups as little gifts, and we hope they feel like a holiday gift for our customers and store partners,” Starbucks creative director Gary Jacobson said in a statement.
