Last month, Starbucks introduced the holiday season drinks, a bevy of artisanal ceramic mugs, the Holiday Blend coffee beans, and the new color-changingcups. They start off green, and turn red when hot liquid is poured in.
Regardless of how you celebrate the darkest days of winter, we all need a little magic in our lives. Even in the best circumstances, magic is a good thing, but now at the end of 2020, magic is much needed. I’ve always wondered about the science behind color-changing cups.
So now the only question is what to drink in those cups? Well, obviously something hot. If you’re ready to explore Starbucks’ holiday drink menu, consider the following options:
- Peppermint Mocha
- Toasted White Chocolate Mocha
- Caramel Brulee Latte
- Chestnut Praline Latte
- Eggnog Latte
And of course, there is the tried-and-true Holiday Blend Coffee, a seasonal offering, made of 100% arabica beans, that includes a blend of high-quality coffee beans with herbal and sweet maple notes. I personally love this seasonal blend. It definitely has that overtone of cinnamon that makes it a perfect staying-indoors winter brew.
Whatever you choose to drink—enjoy! But whatever you do, don’t miss the magic of the color-changing cups. We all could use a little magic in our lives. Happy winter holidays!
