Ranking Starbucks Holiday Drinks


Abby Schorr, Staff Writer

As the holiday season is officially here, another thing that is also officially here are Starbucks holiday drinks.

Starbucks has many holiday drinks, but the real question is are they all good? 

I’ve ranked each drink with a number 1-6, with 1 being the best and 6 being the worst.


Starting off with #1 the best, we’re going super simple with the Peppermint Hot Chocolate. This is honestly a classic for me. I love peppermint flavors. It just makes me happy and reminds me of Christmas. 


#2 once again with another peppermint flavor: the Peppermint Mocha. Like I said, I really love peppermint flavors and this just tasted so good. I would definitely give this the title of what a Christmas coffee tastes like.


#3 The Iced Sugar cookie Almond Milk Latte. I really liked this tasted a lot like a sugar cookie, but there are a few reasons this isn’t my favorite. One is because the almond milk was really overpowering. I definitely tasted a lot of almond milk, and it was really sweet. Don’t get me wrong, I like sweet treats, but this was a little to sweet for my taste.


#4 The Toasted White Chocolate Mocha. This tasted like white chocolate and marshmallows in a coffee and was really good, but wasn’t my favorite.  It was very sweet similar to the Iced Sugar Cookie Almond Milk Latte, and I’m also not a big white chocolate person.


#5  The Caramel Brulée Latte. This drink was really good, but just like some over the other ones a little too sweet for me.


And last but not least: at #6: The Chestnut Praline Latte. For this one it was way too sweet. I did not like the chestnut and on top of that it was also really overpowering.


I hope this makes your holiday Starbucks order easier. Comment below if you have tried any of these and tell me your thoughts.
