For us (and many people around the world, we think) Christmas hasn’t really started until Starbucks have released their new Christmas red cups. And for 2019, it seems they’re keeping their new festive drinks close to their chest, as we’re yet to hear exactly what is launching, apparently on 5 November.
But we do now know one of the new drinks we’ll be gulping down this Christmas – the toasted marshmallow hot chocolate.
Combining classic hot chocolate with a marshmallow flavoured whipped cream, and topped with mocha sauce, marshmallow syrup and caramelised sugar, this is one drink for those with a serious sweet tooth (that’s all of us, right?).
News of this new Christmas drink has trickled down to customers who are members of the My Starbucks Rewards programme, who receive benefits like seasonal menu previews. Alongside the hot chocolate, a festive trio of classics are returning, including toffee nut, gingerbread and eggnog lattes.
