Plume Review: Starbucks Holiday Drinks


Bianca Vargas

It’s that wonderful time of the year CHRISTMAS TIME!!!! You know what that means… Starbucks Holiday Drinks! I have never tried Starbucks holiday drinks before so I decided I should give them a try and give my review.

1- Peppermint Mocha: A latte containing a shot of espresso and steamed milk with peppermint and mocha syrup. The peppermint adds a holiday feeling to the drink. With a grande size you can still taste the two shots of espresso along with peppermint and chocolate. The chocolate is not overwhelming it’s just the right amount. The peppermint is almost refreshing if you drink it in the morning. 4/5

2- Caramel Brulée Latte: This is a drink that could work year round because caramel isn’t that much of a holiday flavor. The caramel brulée syrup is what makes it different from the mochas. Don’t get me wrong the drink is yummy, the crunchy sprinkles on top are just right, but the drink itself is just a little too sweet. This latte is good every once in a while as a little treat. A good thing about this drink is that it can be enjoyed hot or cold. 3/5Iced Caramel Brûlée Latte for the Starbucks 2022 Holiday Menu (Starbucks)

3- Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte: The difference between this latte and the others is that this drink uses a blonde roast. The beans are roasted less giving the drink a softer and smoother flavor. The sugar cookie syrup is delicious. The red and green sprinkles give the holiday cheer people look for. 4/5Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte for the Starbucks 2022 Holiday Menu (Starbucks)

4-Iris Cream Cold Brew: I’m not a big fan of cold brew drinks because you can’t get it hot if you want and the drink is mostly coffee. I’m not a big fan of coffee. The foam doesn’t really mix well with coffee meaning after you finish drinking the overly-sweetened foam you are stuck with black coffee essentially. The drink is boring with no holiday cheer/vibes. 1/5                                                                      Irish Cream Cold Brew for the Starbucks holiday menu 2022 (Starbucks)
