It’s a Starbucks tradition unlike any other: the return of the signature holiday drink coffee – in a party cup.
Starbucks released its holiday drink menu Thursday. The menu brings back classic drinks, including Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and Chestnut Praline Latte.
The collection also features the return of seasonal coffees such as Christmas blends and holiday blends.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Starbucks holiday cup, introduced in 1997. The company will release four new cups to kick off the holiday season.
“We often talk about cups as small gifts, and we hope they feel like a gift for our customers and store partners,” Starbucks creative director Gary Jacobson said in a statement. .

Starbucks Holiday Cup 2022
The coffee giant said it is shipping four holiday cups to commemorate 25 years of holiday cups.
The magic of gift wrapping. The red and green cups have “fluttering ribbons and twinkling lights” to resemble gift wrapping.
Frosted Sparkle. This mint green glass includes starbursts and diamond shapes.
Decorative ornaments. The standard white Starbucks cup gets a fun twist with patterns of holiday symbols, such as ornaments and Christmas trees.
Evergreen is good. This red mug features the pattern of a white Christmas tree.
What’s on the Starbucks Holiday Menu?
This year’s menu will feature the return of several popular drinks, including Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha and Irish Cream Cold Brew. Starbucks will be bringing back the Iced Sugar Almondmilk Latte cookie after it was introduced last year.
Making its debut this year is the Chocolate Pistachio Swirl, which Starbucks describes as “chocolate filling with notes of cinnamon and coffee swirling into buttery.
Brioche-inspired dough with mint chocolate chips and topped with chopped pistachios.”
What about the Red Cup date 2022?
Starbucks has not yet confirmed when it will host this year’s Red Cup event, when the coffee chain will hand out a limited edition red cup with a holiday or fall drink theme.
Last year’s Red Cup event was held on Nov. 18, two weeks after Starbucks introduced its holiday cocktail menu.
