If there’s one thing Starbucks knows how to do, it’s get fans excited about a new release. And, in true brand fashion, they’re doing just that with the announcement of their holiday-inspired drinks and the return of seasonal red cups.

Releasing a sneak peek of this year’s festive designs, the coffee chain switched things up a bit by introducing a gift tag on each of the four cups for writing names or fun messages. Another thing that customers may notice about the designs is the addition of a new color to join the traditional red, white, and green: lilac. Starbucks fans can choose from a wrapping paper cup, a ribbon cup, a holiday lights cup, or a candy cane cup — all of which are suited to make your day as bright and merry as you want it to be.

In addition to the reemergence of their beloved holiday cup designs, Starbucks is also releasing something equally as festive — a lineup of seasonally delicious drinks! Included in the drop are fan favorites like the Peppermint Mocha — which is coming back for an impressive 19th year — Chestnut Praline Latte, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Irish Cream Cold Brew, and the palate-pleasing Caramel Bruleé Latte.

While all of the returning classics are enough to get you excited, if you’ve been hoping for Starbucks to release a dairy-free holiday beverage, you are in luck because this year, your dream is coming true. Joining the lineup of seasonal greats, the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte is sure to be an absolute treat.

Combining blonde espresso, sugar cookie flavored syrup, almond milk, and topped with colorful cookie sprinkles, the newest arrival gains the honor of being the first non-dairy holiday drink that the brand has released. And, in true SB fashion, this one is available in both hot or iced options, too.

Other things Starbucks fans can look forward to this season are the return of goodies like the Sugar Plum Cheese Danish and Cranberry Bliss Bar as well as those making first-time appearances on the menu like the vanilla cake and chocolate frosted Reindeer Cake Pop.

Customers can nab the holiday sips (including the new Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte), seasonal menu items, and the festive red cups beginning Thursday, November 4 at Starbucks locations nationwide.
